Our English Breakfast highlights tea from the Chiang Dao region of Northern Thailand, where we source from some of the best Assamica variety tea gardens in the world. The high elevation garden we source from has premier tea plant genetic strains from Assam and Kenya, as well as local wild Thai tea trees that have been comingling and hybridizing for over six decades. The result is a lush and biodiverse growing environment with tea plants that are truly unique. Our English Breakfast has a rich red infusion color that is malty and robust with sweet fruity undertones and a brisk body that can stand up to milk and sugar.
