Royal Breakfast Loose Leaf Black Tea Caddy
Royal Breakfast Loose Leaf Black Tea Caddy 125g by The East India Company.
The original full bodied English breakfast tea blended to provide a rich, robust tea that compliments a hearty English breakfast. One of our most popular blends.
In 1664, the Company was distressed to find that no provision of a gift for King Charles II had been made. Accordingly, two pounds of tea found on board were presented to the King, much to the delight of his wife Catherine of Braganza from Portugal (who had grown up with a taste for tea). She introduced tea as a fashionable drink in courtly and aristocratic circles and so began a long Royal tradition of tea drinking and the start of the British love affair with the daily brew.
This tea is sourced from a tea estate certified by The Ethical Tea Partnership. Ingredient: Black Tea from India and Sri Lanka.
