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!

A lovely tea for the morning
Loved the store, the cashier was awesome!! Tea tasted fantastic!! I'll be back!
This tea is delicious. It’s a nice replacement for me for morning coffee because it has a deep flavor and I can add cream and honey for my desired flavor. It’s lovely to drink mid afternoon too when you need that pick-me up. Smooth and rich and a very nice color too.
The Happy Breakfast Blend is a nice tea for any time of day. I prefer a maltier, naturally sweeter blend to this one, which has more floral notes, but it's just a personal preference and is not a commentary on this blend's quality. This is a very good tea with a nice flavor profile, smooth finish, and mouth feel.
