Most breakfast blends are made with dark Assam teas to take with milk and sugar. Otherwise, they’ll make your nose curl and your palate pucker. When I created Island Breakfast, I wanted a hearty black tea that could be enjoyed neat which means zero add calories.
Breakfast blends are made with low elevation Assam tea from the central to southern part of India. Assam is one of the largest tea growing region in the world. These teas are known for their strength and body as the rhino in the region’s logo implies. These teas are sturdy and stand up well to milk and sugar.
Island Breakfast is made with fine Assam for a rich malty base. We blend in high elevation Darjeeling to lift the cup and add breadth as a straight drinker. One sip and you will taste why Island Breakfast is breakfast tea like no other.
