Which country do you take your breakfast tea, hmm? This weeks' feature focus is on "breakfast" teas. And, there are several that are famously known (Irish Breakfast, English Breakfast, Scottish Breakfast). And there are a few that are not quite as famous (Norfolk Breakfast, Morning Rain, St. Paul's London Breakfast) but all the same, make mid-morning break just as enjoyable. "Breakfast tea" traditionally is a short period of time set aside for the purpose of a small meal or snack eaten between breakfast and lunch. It is taken as a break from schoolwork, work, a conference, etc. The other alternative is 'afternoon tea'. 😉😏You will find breakfast teas are a dark, rich flavor with energizing caffeine levels. The L-Theanine them helps to give you a mindful boost without the crash that will leave you in an afternoon lull. Respectfully, however, the activity of breakfast tea began is the ancient Eastern cultures of China and India that found its way into the earlier Western cultures as tea was introduced during the Exploration Years. It is a wonder that this ancient practice of breakfast tea is still very much an influence in the world today, and in so many different countries and cultures within.

What's the difference between English and Scottish Breakfast teas? Breakfast teas are crafted with a country or region’s cultural taste in mind. English Breakfast has rich, full undertones and smooth & malty flavor with bitter & sweet notes. Scottish Breakfast tea is full bodied, brisk, malty and oaky, with a hint of natural smokiness. But what does that mean? Breakfast teas can find their origins in the late nineteenth century, when tea was drunk exclusively in the afternoon. Well now, Scottish tea maker Robert Drysdale came up with the blend which would later came to be known as English Breakfast, hoping to seize the opportunity to create a "perfect breakfast-time tea" based on the idea of the old "Moorish baked beans and black pudding" meal (think the traditional English ‘fry-up’ breakfast). He found his blend by sourcing his new breakfast tea blend loose leaves from tea estates around the world; Sri Lanka, India, and China. Later in 1892, Queen Victoria tasted and enjoyed Drysdale’s blend on a visit to Balmoral Castle in Scotland. She then popularised the blend among her peerage back home in England. And that is how it became known in popular culture as an English Breakfast tea. 💡🏆And back in Scotland, while the blend is similar to English breakfast tea, Scottish breakfast tea was likely blended specifically to overcome Scotland's soft water, which can sometimes taste a bit salty. There ya have it pal (a Scottish word actually) ... the Scottish are credited for both teas, aye. Scottish Breakfast ~ Rich, malty taste, full-bodied with hints of oak. Great with milk and sugar.

Irish breakfast tea has a strong Assam component, giving it a robust, malty flavor and reddish color. It is stronger than English breakfast tea, but not quite as strong as the Scottish variety. Because of the important role of the dairy industry in Ireland, it is usually served with milk. The English origins of Irish Breakfast Tea can be traced back to the 18th century, when tea drinking became popular in Europe. The British, who had established trade routes with China, were the first to import tea to Europe. The English eventually began purchasing their tea from India, which introduced the Irish to Assam black tea. This tea became a staple in the Irish breakfast tea blends. However, it wasn't until the 1930's that an Irishman named Samuel Bewley decided to trade directly with India for tea. Irish Breakfast Cream ~ Full-bodied, with creamy caramel notes.
