A breakfast tea is made from the tea plant the Camellia sinensis, as all black teas are. The tea leaves are fully oxidized, which gives the tea a hearty deep rich flavour with a amber colored brew. What is the difference between a breakfast blend and an afternoon blend? It is all about where the Camellia sinensis plant comes from. Think of a grape. Depending on where it is grown will determine the type of wine that is created. The same thing goes for tea. All elements determine the strength of the tea’s flavour like, rain, soil and the region that it is grown in. A breakfast blend has more of a bite and is very robust. Just what you need to wake up in the morning. Breakfast teas caffeine.
