English Breakfast Tea (Strong) differs from our English Breakfast Original (Light) in that our stronger blend, along with bright and lively teas from Sri Lanka contains teas from both Assam, India and a top class Keemun leaf from the Anhui province in China. The result is a darker, stronger infusion that copes well with both hard and soft water types to give a really flavoursome cup of tea that works really well when served with milk. 

English Breakfast Tea (Strong) is also available in Leaf Tea, Biodegradable Pyramid Tea Bags

    Love This Tea!

    Posted by Charlotte on Sep 09, 2023

    I've been a wholesale customer of Jenier for years and had always bought their other English Breakfast - a good taste, but customers sometimes thought it 'looked' pale. Switched to this strong version and customers love this new tea - getting great comments. Would definitely recommend this tea!!
