English Breakfast Tea

Tea Description
Click here to read customer feedback for this tea!

Being one of the most popular blended teas, English breakfast tea is extremely common within British and Australian tea life. Normally described as rich and full bodied, this tea goes great with milk and sugar.

Our leaves are dark, and with a slightly larger cut than most - with the leaves kept intact as much as possible to help preserve freshness.

Possibly one of the best choice of tea for breakfast ever! Start your day with premium black tea from Tea Life. You'll be able to taste the difference and start your day off on the right foot.

From certified organic Australian suppliers

    As soon as water reaches boiling, steep for 4 minutes. Don't overboil the water as the oxygen levels within the water will be reduced.

      great tasting tea! The leaves are the perfect size for any tea strainer. You don't get anything falling through into the cup. Tea Life is my fourth brand of English breakfast that I've sampled, and the only one I've reordered. Definitely coming back for more next time.

      Hi Stacy, thank you for your big compiment! Sometime in the future we may be able to offer samples - at the moment we're still fairly new and just keeping up with orders. Hopefully next year we'll be able to do that!

      Hi Michela thanks for your review! In response to the tins suggestion, it's something we have thought about - but the cost difference is quite higher than what we're using now. We'd much prefer to keep the costs of our tea down as much as possible and not pass that packaging cost on to our customers! The other benefit of our packaging is that we can make it thin enough to offer the $2 shipping option (we're the only tea website in Australia able to do this or moreso - willing to risk it!). Which is great if you just wish to buy a 1-2 types of tea without having to pay high shipping costs.

      Why buy online with Tea Life? What sets it apart?
      We're not just another tea brand.
      We focus on Australian produce and organic tea wherever possible.

      • Quality: Australian standards impose strict quality control on packing and Hygeine.
      • Freshness: We only pack our tea upon your order. Until that time, it's kept within the bulk of the loose leaf tea. This dramatically increases freshness and taste.
      • Health: The full remedial powers, taste and aroma of our tea are unlocked due to our organic and fresh produce.

        Chickweed Tea

        I purchased chickweed tea, and the order came the next day, the service is impeccable. The tea was savoury, taste fresh and beautiful. My daughter had a kidney infection which cleared up after taking this tea for a few days. It’s a tea I now drink regularly with my daughter.

        Hi Fadya, Thank you for your review! I'm glad that helped. I also didn't know that a possible next day delivery to your location was possible with Sendle so that's also good to know. Thank you!
