Selecting the Leaves: The Origins of Our Blend

At Genuine Tea, we take pride in sourcing our tea from sustainable, organic farms around the world. For our English Breakfast Blend, we've carefully selected three different teas to create a balanced, robust cup. The first tea in the blend is 50% organic Golden Assam from Mana Organics, a farm in India that prioritizes fair wages and organic farming practices. The second tea is 25% organic Ceylon CTC from Nilmini Estates in Sri Lanka, where the tea is grown on a family-owned farm at the base of a mountain range. Finally, we've added 25% organic Keemun from the Hunan Tea Farmers' Co-Operative in China, which lends a rich, smoky flavour to the blend.

Crafting the Perfect Blend: The Art of Tea Blending

Once the tea is sourced, our expert blenders get to work on creating the perfect blend. We taste each tea individually to understand its unique flavour profile and adjust the ratios until we achieve the perfect balance of malty, sweet, and bold flavours. The result is a tea that's ideal for mornings, with strong notes of cocoa and cinnamon.

Beyond the Blend: The Impact of Ethical Sourcing

One of the most exciting things about our English Breakfast Blend is the stories behind each of the teas in the blend. By sourcing our tea from ethical and sustainable farms, we're able to support farmers who are passionate about producing high-quality tea in a responsible way. We believe that knowing where your tea comes from and how it's produced makes the experience of drinking tea that much more special.

 

Conclusion:

In today's fast-paced world, taking a few minutes to enjoy a cup of tea is a simple but powerful act of self-care. At Genuine Tea, we believe that every cup tells a story, and our English Breakfast Blend is no exception. By carefully selecting and blending high-quality teas from around the globe, we've created a blend that's both delicious and sustainable. The next time you sip on a cup of English Breakfast Blend, we hope you'll think of the farmers who grew the tea and the blenders who crafted it just for you. Cheers to a perfect cup of tea!
