Leadenhall Street Breakfast Blend

A tribute to the famous London tea auctions, our Leadenhall Street Breakfast Blend is a blend of two classic British teas: a brisk Ceylon and a thick, malty Assam. The result is a flavorful mixture which lends itself to the addition of milk.

New favorite!
kimberly – AZ – October 03, 2019

Absolutely love this tea! I take tea with quite a lot of milk, and my long-time favorite has been Halmari Estate CTC BOP, a very strong, aromatic Assam. But when I tried Leadenhall Street, I found that it has a wonderfully well-rounded flavor that stands up perfectly to milk and is never harsh - so, it's easier to drink all day long.

A good-enough "Perfect"!

With a strong, crispy attitude, this one is sure not to disappoint. Mind you, it does take some fortitude on one's part to handle; but if that's not an impediment, this tea rewards you with a very good cup you'll order again and again (like me). By far, it is one of the best English Breakfast teas Upton sells.

Never Didn't Enjoy

This is a very strong breakfast tea, in just a minute it can hit you right in the throat as you drink it. Perfect for adding milk, perfect to wake yourself up in the morning. Cheap enough for us commoners to drink every morning. What's not to like? I'm sure there are higher quality breakfast teas on this site, but I never didn't enjoy a cup of this

About every year or two we order a bunch of samples and do a rigorous side by side testing, and then make our order. But a year in, we are asking "which one are we running out of?" "Which one do we want more of?" "Which one do we want to order a tin for the nieces and nephews?" Leadenhall! It's a rags to riches story.

Fantastic surprise!

This tea has a wonderful aroma and a fantastic body. It really is great with cream, maybe a touch of honey. I didn't think I liked the breakfast blends, but here I am! I'll be back for this.

A delightful breakfast blend
Chris – CA – August 25, 2018

A wonderfully complex blend that makes a delicious breakfast companion we buy again and again. I now brew it for 3 minutes as recommended. (The first pot I made I over-brewed at 5 minutes, which made it go bitter, tannic, and bullet proof.) We drink ours straight, but it would work well with milk.

Great hearty taste
DiAnna – NV – February 23, 2018

I like to heavily steep my tea...why? I love to taste the strong flavor, and add heavy cream,and honey! It's a great tea, holds up we'll if I get busy and have to reheat it's still delicious hours after steeping.

A fine morning brew
Antony C – CO – December 12, 2017

This is my favorite blend from Upton. A great morning brew. Good complex taste and also has some punch to start my day. The name & flavor do indeed remind me of the old market in London of the same name.

Hearty morning blend
Lynnea – IL – December 05, 2017

Brews into a very bracing morning cup. Stands up well to a dollop of honey and a few splashes of milk.
