ORIGIN

Interestingly, there is only a bit of English in the history of English Breakfast Blend. It appears the blend was created by one enterprising tea merchant Richard Davies of New York City around 1843. Davies might have named it "English Breakfast" in the memory of the country he had migrated from. The blend was supposed to mimic the robust tea that was had in the UK that did a good job of washing down a rather heavy and greasy breakfast of the time. Davies used Keemun as a base, and added some Ceylon and Pouchong (lightly oxidized oolong) to create a blend that was hearty, consistent and affordable. While tea ran at the time at around $1 a pound, this new blend was priced at 50 cents a pound. He was soon swamped by an endless demand, with the popularity of this blend finally expanding across the Atlantic to actually take over England itself!

Thanks for all the positive feedback Paula. We're delighted to hear you like the Arya. It was quite difficult to get tea out of India because of the pandemic so this one is a small miracle. Enjoy every sip! Wishing you happiness and good health Paula!
