Feel like visiting Paris? Don’t have the time or the funds? Try a soothing Octavia Tea’s Organic French Breakfast black tea. The luxurious flavor transports you to a French sidewalk café. Delight in the rich bright flavor of this black tea with just a hint of vanilla and caramel. Fresh cut pieces of real vanilla bean make this tea a true delight. Vanilla bean comes from the orchid plant and is considered a precious commodity throughout the world
Breakfast teas are an invigorating accompaniment to your morning routine but also taste great any time of the day. Compared to other breakfast blends, English Breakfast is more traditional with its classic, bright flavor and brisk astringency, Irish Breakfast is the strongest tea with a bold, deep flavor and a hint of smoke, and French Breakfast is richer and more luxurious, with a malty, dessert-like vanilla flavor.
Enhanced with rose petals and the decadent, creamy flavor of fresh-cut vanilla bean, French Breakfast was a favorite in the tearoom as well as at my home.
BREWING TIPS: For the smoothest flavor, allow water to cool to 180°F after boiling and steep 1 tablespoon of tealeaves per 12 ounces of water for only 2-2.5 minutes. Increase the steeping time or start with more leaves if you wish to add milk.
