What could be more English than Winston Churchill? Arguably, the most notable British Prime Minister in history, Winston was known to be a lover of whiskey and also had an immense fondness for a cup of rich tasting English Breakfast tea. Palate aside, Churchill was also noted for his one-liners. One of his more famous quotes has to do with a nice British cuppa and is reported to be taken from a dialogue he had with Lady Nancy Astor, an American who became a member of the British Parliament. It should be noted that the two were not friends!
"Winston, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea."
"Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it."
Well, luckily for England, Nancy didn't follow through on her threat. Had she done so, we certainly hope that she didn't intend to taint a cup of English Breakfast as savory and pure as this Organic variety. This is surely the kind of tea Winston would have quaffed down by the pot-full. Blended using certified organic teas from Sri Lanka, China, and Tanzania; this tea is full-bodied, astringent, with subtle touches of jammy toast. With a little milk and a dash of sugar, this tea makes a perfect complement to a proper English Breakfast (the meal!). Here's to Winston, Nancy, and England!
Organic English Breakfast
A perfect breakfast tea with body and full flavour. Harkens back to the days when tea laden clipper ships raced to London.
