Product Summary

Perfect with a slice of buttery toast or a full English. Original English breakfast teabags. An old timer and somewhat of a matriarch within the Twinings tea family. Our English Breakfast master blender searches relentlessly for the best teas from Assam, Ceylon and Kenya to give a perfectly balanced blend. We don't stop at just one tea from each origin, as each specially chosen tea garden adds a defining taste and quality to the end blend. Every cup you drink contains tea from 15 different tea gardens. The master blender has a busy task, the large number of tea gardens and seasonal fluctuations mean for every batch they juggle the levels of each tea in the recipe to give a consistently first-class cup of tea. The journey from the tea garden to your cup... When it comes to tea we're a little different from everybody else. The way we buy and blend is unique; we choose from more origins than anyone else and have a master blender dedicated to each of these locations. What they don't know about their tea gardens and where to find the best quality, isn't worth knowing. It is said that 7 is a lucky number, for us it's the number of times the master blenders taste each batch to make sure that the quality from its exotic origin reaches your cup. Discover our traditional tasting teas. Original English Breakfast since 1706. They say breakfast's the most important meal. We say this tea's the most important drink. Wake up and ease yourself into the day with this original blend. 1706 Strong Breakfast. Strong by name, strong by nature, it's one of our long standing favourites. So much so, we drink it for a little extra punch throughout the day. Traditional Afternoon. A little lighter than English Breakfast, it's the tea saviour that sees you from lunch through to dinner, perfect with a piece of cake or a nice biscuit of course. Ethical Tea Partnership. We care about the communities where our tea is grown and picked and this is why we are a founder member of the Ethical Tea Partnership, which works to improve tea workers' welfare and the environment in which they live. Twinings have also supported a range of projects since 2004, including improving health services and nutrition, providing access to clean water, better education and assisting children with disabilities. Together with our partners we have helped over half a million children in China and India. To find out more about our projects visit What's your favourite breakfast? For many people it's bacon and eggs, with a slice or two of buttery toast. Not as essential, though, as a good cup of tea. We blended this tea to go with breakfast and then discovered that we like drinking it all day. They say breakfast's the most important meal. We say this tea's the most important drink.
