Why Classic English Breakfast Tea is the ultimate way to start your Day

In India, the day begins with a sacred ritual – a warm cup of chai, consumed in a state of calm and balance. But as modern life speeds up, a new morning ritual has emerged – caffeine in various forms. And amidst this, the classic English breakfast tea has found a place in the hearts and cups of Indians everywhere. Join us as we explore the history of morning rituals and caffeine in Indian society.  Let’s discover how this iconic tea has become an integral part of everyday life. Especially in a country so vibrant, diverse and complex.


An Old Staple Gets a Makeover

Classic English Breakfast Tea is a type of black tea blend. Unquestionably, this tea has become a beloved morning beverage around the world. The origins of this tea can be traced back to the early 19th century. During that time tea became a popular drink among the British. In detail, the blend typically includes black tea from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. Also, it’s famous for its rich, full-bodied flavour and strong, malty taste. 

The tea was originally designed to complement the hearty breakfasts of the English. However, it soon became a staple in households across the country. Today, this tea can be found in homes and cafes all over the world. As has been noted, its popularity shows no signs of slowing down.
