How It Tastes

Our take on a classic English Breakfast tea is a bold, wide-awake blend that’s great straight, or with milk and sugar or honey. The malty taste is evidence of fine Assam tea, while the crisp and bright taste of Nilgiri tea shines through. In addition to these India tea origins, we've added East African Rwanda tea, a high elevation area producing brisk, citrusy and toasty teas.

History

Breakfast teas are strongly associated with Britain, and the only general rules are that the blend be all black teas, contain no flavoring, and have enough natural strength to stand up to milk and sugar in the British style of serving. We use primarily Assam and Nilgiri teas from India in our Organic Breakfast - the most unusual aspect of the the blend is it's both Organic and Fair Trade, part of our commitment to people and planet.

Paul from Santa Fe, NM on 9/25/2017. Drinking Peet's since 2003.

One of our go-to breakfast teas from Peet's. Being organic makes it even more appealing. Did a fairly controlled taste comparison with 2 other black tea blends from Peet's, and this one held its own in every way.

Got this because my local Peet's was out of my current favorite which is Organic Darjeeling Kalimpong (others online dislike ODK but I love it). This one is undrinkable, however. Ordinarily I love Peet's teas, but I found myself pouring my cups of Organic Breakfast tea down the drain rather than drinking them. Twinings English Breakfast tea bags are better than this tea.

Excellent tea. Quite delicious as a breakfast tea or just simply ice tea. My sisters love it too as ice tea.

Jennifer from Albany, CA on 11/25/2016. Drinking Peet's since 2000.

Very very disappointing that Peet's has discontinued its own brand of teas and substituted the undeniably inferior "Mighty Leaf" brand. Mighty Mediocre would be a more accurate name! Hoarding my last cans of the good stuff, but very sad about Peet's ill-conceived product decision.

Sorry to hear so many not like this tea, but I do. Perhaps it is because I am a recient convert to tea. I don't like the kind of tea I was brought up on in Ireland as it was too strong and bitter so switched to Coffee. This brought me back to tea.
