From Mighty Leaf Tea

A complex and aromatic blend of black teas crafted for enjoyment during the holiday season. Big enough to take milk and sugar, refined enough to enjoy unadorned.

Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each 8 oz. cup of water. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Steep tea for 4-5 minutes. Strain leaves while pouring.

For Breakfast Tea lovers, our Holiday Breakfast is a real treat. Breakfast black teas are typically a black tea blend with teas of more than one origin with no flavorings added. English Breakfast became the term for the house blend at tea companies. It’s a great tea for tea drinkers who want a straight black tea or perhaps want black tea but don’t have a specific style in mind. During the holidays people treat others and themselves, so with that idea in mind, all the teas in this blend are self-drinking (that’s tea nerd speak for teas that are good on their own and require no blending—teas that are too good to blend). I played with the idea of an easy-drinking tea that’s balanced and elevates the breakfast tea experience by introducing teas you would never find in an English Breakfast tea.

Holiday Breakfast costs more than English Breakfast because the teas are better. We include a good Darjeeling tea as the center of Holiday Breakfast that’s a brisk second flush tea—this hefty tea is not the typical flavor associated with a Darjeeling. Keemun tea from China is present in this blend too. Keemun’s toasty, woodsy aroma fits the winter season. We also include Yunnan with its sweet, lovely flavor that makes the other teas taste even better. Holiday Breakfast has been a classic winter tea of ours for 25 years! It was the first tea I ever created in my training years ago with Jim Reynolds, my tea and coffee mentor.
