Breakfast Tea Like No Other

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 black tea that could be enjoyed neat with zero-calories and paired with the Pacific Rim foods we love in the Islands.


Breakfast blends are made with low elevation Assam teas from the central to southern parts of India.  Assam is one of the largest tea growing regions in the world.  As the rhino in the region’s logo implies, Assams are known for their strength and body.  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 add lift and breadth to the taste profile.  One sip and you will taste why Island Breakfast is breakfast tea like no other.

Aloha, my name is Byron Goo. I started our company in 1995 in my garage. Tea has taken me all over the world since then and I continue to be a student of the leaf and of life. The Leaf Lover is a way for me to share about my passion for tea and our small business. I wear many hats including CEO of the company but I think of myself simply as a tea maker.
