Description:   Winston Churchill, arguably the most notable British Prime Minister in history, was a noted lover of drink. Although he is most known to have had a penchant for the strong stuff, namely whiskey, he also had an immense fondness for a cup of rich tasting English Breakfast.

Palate aside, Churchill was also notable for good one-liners. One of his more famous quotes has to do with a nice British cuppa and is 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 exactly the kind of tea Winston would have quaffed down by the pot-full. Blended using certified organic teas from India, 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 compliment to a proper english Breakfast (the meal!).

Here’s to Winston, Nancy, and England!

Hot Tea Brewing Method: Bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea straiht up.

Iced Tea Brewing Metrhod: (To make 1 Litre): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resitant pitcher. Pour 1¼ cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes.

Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.

[A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or milky when poured over ice, a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about.
