  • Bought it because I liked its many favorable reviews. It's a strong tea with a full flavor but not a hint of bitterness. Very reasonably priced.

  • Sarah – MA – January 25, 2021
  • We wanted a reliable, go-to "workhorse" breakfast tea, and this is it! Nothing flashy, but a wonderful morning cup.
  • Repeat customer - this is our comfort go-to morning (and often anytime) tea

  • With my teenager and I both at home 24/7, we go through huge amounts of tea. This is a favorite after trying multiple black breakfast blends. It brews up strong, quickly just like those bags of Typhoo that I used to get sent to me by family members in England. While it has a robust flavor, I haven't noticed bitterness or off-notes. Needs milk.

  • Jackie – UT – November 15, 2020
  • It's important to me to locate organic teas, if possible, so I was happy to find this blend. It took a while, but discovered how to brew it so there's no astringency (which I really don't like at all), so now it's on my list of teas to repurchase. Hint: water temp ~185° to 190° and time ~2:25 worked best for me. I'd love to see more ORGANIC blends!
  • Excellent morning tea!!

  • KC – MA – November 02, 2020
  • This tea is a wonderful morning with a kick! I highly recommend it for its traditional black tea flavor and taste.
  • Reasonably strong, decent value
  • 4 star rating
  • Anabel – CA – July 04, 2020
  • I was looking for a strong tea to stand up to milk and honey. This is strong, but not as robust as I expected; it's OK without milk or sweetener. It's a good value for an organic tea.
  • Yep, every morning
  • 5 star rating
  • Laura – CA – May 17, 2020
  • After trying out some other organic black teas, I've settled on this. I drink it every morning, and sometimes throughout the day.Though it does pack an energy punch, so, never after 3pm. The tase is strong and balanced, but not bitter. Really delicious. When I have extra time to make chai from scratch -- it works great in that. Just YUM.
  • Well-rounded breakfast tea

  • Mariah – NJ – April 08, 2020
  • Well-rounded, accessible breakfast tea that doesn't have a harsh tang to it but is still full of flavor. Love the assortment of organic loose leaf teas that are still full of flavor and ALWAYS fresh. When buying from anywhere else, the quality and freshness are questionable but after 10 yrs buying Upton, I've always received top-quality product.
  • Our favorite Saturday morning tea

  • Susan – MD – July 28, 2019
  • We've tried lots of breakfast teas, thanks to Upton's outstanding selection, and this is our family's favorite. It is wonderful with milk and sugar.
  • My Favorite Tea in the World

  • Chris – NE – July 01, 2019
  • Organic English Breakfast Blend is wonderful. It's bright, sweet, strong, and malty. It stands up to anything. Hard water? No problem. Cream or sugar? The flavor comes right through. It smells divine. It's great hot or iced. The CTC rolled balls are easy to handle. Plus, it's organic, so what more could you ask for? My #1 tea ever.
  • Thanks for supplying organic
  • 5 star rating
  • joe – IA – June 29, 2019
  • First of all, I really appreciate the fact that Upton offers organic products, and a great variety of them. This should be standard among any supplier of teas. This English Breakfast variety was not as brisk/tangy as I hoped for, so probably will be looking for something else next time. However, it is a great classic black tea.
  • My mainstay
  • 5 star rating
  • Jody – MA – March 07, 2019
  • This tea is perfect for me. I like a brisk, strong English breakfast blend that I can drink black, all day long. It has to be an Assam/Ceylon type-- sharp and potent. And as it's going to be the main building-block of my world, organic is the way to go. I don't know what I'd do without this tea.
  • A clear favorite

  • Robert` – MA – December 10, 2018
  • I like a hearty, malty tea in the morning; this tea meets the requirement very well indeed. A bit of milk brings out infusion's sweetness and banishes any hint of acridity. I'm relieved that I can get such an agreeable (and organic) tea at a modest price.
  • Perfect morning cup
  • 5 star rating
  • Beth – MA – January 14, 2018
  • My daughter and I depend on this to get us started on our day! Lovely blend of Assam and Ceylon. Stands up well to milk. Never the least bit of bitterness no matter how strong you make it. And we like it strong!
  • My New Favorite
  • 5 star rating
  • Michelle – ME – December 16, 2017
  • I have tried various English Breakfast teas, several through Upton. I tried this one when my usual was not available. It is now my favorite tea by far! It is a hearty cup, with a nice finish that makes me want more! Great with just milk or with a little sugar added to the milk. Yum!
  • Excellent Cup
  • 5 star rating
  • John – PA – October 10, 2017
  • I've gone down the rabbit hole of trying unique, diverse teas, and recently returned to a standard. These leaves make quite an invigorating hearty cup. I am quite pleased & you cannot beat the price.
