The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water.
Heat fresh water to a rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
Use the infuser of your choice. Measure 1 teaspoon of tea per person. For a stronger brew preference, add an additional teaspoon for the pot.
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea leaves. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5-7 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This black tea has more caffeine than teas in our green tea range. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.

The rich and malty aroma of English Breakfast makes this blend an invigorating beverage to kick-start your day.
English Breakfast appears dark golden-brown in color and has a very bright or reflective surface. This brightness demonstrates the very high quality of the tea leaves, which are medium-sized grainy leaves as well as desirable leaf bud tips.
The Assam teas give English Breakfast a malty and creamy richness, while the Kenyan and Ceylon teas add freshness. Due to its very strong and robust flavor, this blend is well-suited for milk and sugar.
