Type: Black Ceylon
Ceylon tea first was cultivated in the late 1800s on the mystical island of Ceylon, today known as Sri Lanka. Brooklyn Breakfast’s Ceylon tea leaves are harvested in the Sri Lankan highlands, which provide the ideal climate for incomparable taste. We carefully select leaves for peak flavor and meticulously oxidize the leaves to give this iconic black tea its unique, rich golden color when brewed. Not as highbrow as its English cousin, Brooklyn Breakfast remains full-bodied and bold – bracing on its own, or mellowed with milk and sugar.
Duke of Earl Grey
Type: Earl Grey
Duke, Duke, Duke. Duke of Earl Grey tea is so good you’ll want to sing about it! Lord Grey was a British Prime minister in the 1830s, and in accordance with Grey family tradition, Earl Grey tea was specially blended by a Chinese public official while in Great Britain. The water at Northumberland, the family’s estate, contained high levels of lime, and extract from the bergamot orange was used to make the tea more palatable. The resulting flavor combination of stately black tea and effervescent bergamot citrus deserves a tip of the hat. Jolly good! Prospect Tea’s Duke of Earl Grey is a bold, dark tea brightened with a soothing citrus sparkle. Contains caffeine for the perfect 3 p.m. need-a-second-wind, pick-me-up.
