kteaslogoI have to admit that English Breakfast teas are not typically blends I get particularly excited about. I enjoy them from time to time but don't often start my day with them. I had a very pleasant experience with K Teas English Breakfast offering, however.

The tea is bright and sweet to the taste, making for nice cheery sipping and closing with a clean dry finish. This tea actually does make an excellent breakfast tea - a lovely way to wake up and greet the day. It makes a perfectly balanced midday or afternoon tea as well.

K Tea notes this as being a blend comprised of Ceylon, Assam, Darjeeling and Java teas and what I enjoyed the most about the tea was the definite forward presence of the Darjeeling which lent a wonderfully light and perky attribute that made the tea really enjoyable. As a whole the tea has plenty to make you look forward to the mornings - fruity high notes with clean, sweet and dry finishing along with a refreshing astringency that remained at all times well balanced. As a final gift, lingering after each sip was a pleasant sweetness.

I wouldn't describe this as a robust tea, as the K Teas website does. I'd say it's bright and medium bodied. The natural sweetness is wonderful and while the tea should handle sweetener and/or milk well, it's not really necessary. This tea is smooth and quite light but with plenty of body to make beginning the day a pleasure.
