Heritage Hero - English Breakfast Was First Blended Almost A Century Ago


In 2013 we had a huge in honour of English Breakfast Tea's 80th Birthday. We marked this milestone with an art deco design limited edition tea box. Twinings English Breakfast tea making mornings better every day!


The English Breakfast Blend has a mix of Assam, Ceylon and Kenyan tea to give a perfectly balanced blend. Our Master Blenders search the globe for the best blends and make sure that each batch of English Breakfast is examined, tried and tasted. The weather and growing conditions change all the time but our incredible master blenders ensure that each and every morning your favourite cup tastes just as delicious as you'd expect it. 


We believe that how you make your English Breakfast is as important as the breakfast you accompany it with, so here are our tips:

Use freshly drawn cold water. Then grab your kettle when it’s at a rolling boil (100C). Use 1 teabag per cup or 1 teabag per person in a teapot. Then infuse for 3 to 5 minutes (or to your taste). It's best with a splash of milk or if serving it black, a slice of lemon is great, too.

Store your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight to keep it fresh.


The reason why English Breakfast is great for the morning time is because it holds a strong dose of caffeine that helps your brain and body to wake up and enables you to seize the day.

English Breakfast teas marry beautifully with your morning meals - the strong flavours of the tea complement beautifully the intense flavours of cooked or continental breakfast or a bowl of cereal.
