Description: Cowichan Breakfast is Westholme’s answer to the classic English breakfast teas in your cupboard, but made instead with the highest grades of black organic tea sourced from Estates around the world. This breakfast blend weaves together four exquisite organic black teas - The malty strength of a black tea from Assam is balanced with the floral complexity of a high quality Chinese black tea and the crisp bite of a tea from Ceylon. Excellent on its own, or with a spot of milk and honey. It is a divine, comforting breakfast tea.

Tasting Notes: The flavour profile of this blend matches the outset of an ideal morning; A sweet and gentle start builds to a strong finish that retains its smoothness, beginning to end. The light, honeyed malt carries the faint smell of fresh flowers, and cultivates a pleasant dry astringency as it sits in the cup.

Cowichan Breakfast is the mildest in our Westholme Breakfast Tea Collection.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. Steep 3-5 minutes.


China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
