Origin: Blended at Westholme
Ingredients: Organic Black Pekoe Teas from China, India, and Sri Lanka
Description: From challenge comes opportunity. The recipe for this delightful morning tea was hand crafted at Westholme in an effort to overcome supply shortages faced across the tea industry during 2020-2021. At a time where we are unable to blend our original home recipe versions of traditional breakfast teas, Island Breakfast emerged in response - and we enjoy this tea so much it is here to stay! Crafted with broken-leaf organic pekoe teas sourced from Estates around the world, Island Breakfast weaves together a crisp tea from Ceylon, a malty Assam tea, and a Chinese black tea known for its cocoa complexity. Excellent on its own, or with a spot of milk and honey. Island Breakfast is a well-rounded, bold yet comforting breakfast tea. It holds the middle seat between our Cowichan Breakfast and Black Breakfast blends.
Tasting Notes: This tea is forthright with sweetly toasted earthy notes, a light malt and a crisp citrus tartness. A light aroma of delicate florals rises from the cup. The steep stays smooth from beginning to end. It finishes strong with a pleasant dry astringent linger. A hint of burnt caramel aroma sits at the bottom of the empty cup. May this breakfast blend inspire all those who sip it to start their morning with the same perspective: ready to find the opportunity in any challenge.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
