British Breakfast full leaf

Manhattan, KS

My tea, what can I say. I don't even buy other kinds any more, if they land in my house my college kid gets them. Why not give myself the tea I love the most :).

Seems like quality is declining over time

Chicago-land, IL

I've been a Republic of Tea customer for years, and I think over time the leaves in their British Breakfast blend have been getting smaller and smaller. The most recent bag I received is ever-so-slightly better than the last one I got (which was one step better than fannings) but both bags have compared poorly against another major vendor's tea I purchased recently. I used to buy English/British blends from both companies and mix them together, but I think I'm going to stop doing that and just go with the competitor from now on. I really wish Republic of Tea was maintaining a higher standard with regard to leaf size/quality. Also, as other reviewers have noted, the flavor is a little one-dimensional.

A strikingly bold, wonderful tea

Wake Forest, NC

A strikingly bold, wonderful tea. I originally reviewed this as 4-star but would like to amend it to 5-star. After trying two other competitors, I find this the best full leaf British breakfast!

A Bit Disappointing

Charlotte, NC

I blame myself for not taking notes when tasting samples from an earlier order. I recall liking all the teas, but some were outstanding. This tea is OK, but not sensational and rather one-dimensional (must have confused it with the Assam Breakfast tea). Being from the South, I love ice tea, too. Unfortunately, British Breakfast makes poor ice tea: cloudy and bad tasting. It is even more unfortunate that I ordered a pound of the stuff.

Fast Delivery, Nice Container, Slightly Less Intense Than Twinings

Raleigh, NC

My order was placed on a Thursday, I believe. It shipped Friday and was received on Saturday. I was very happy with the incredibly fast turnaround! The tea container was very pretty, and keeps the tea fresh. With regards to the tea flavor, I find it slightly less intense than regular Twinings tea bags. However, it has more fullness. Overall, I rate Republic of Tea British Breakfast Black Full-Leaf 4 stars!

Manhattan, KS

This is my favorite tea. I want it every morning, and sometimes during the day, I have liked it for ages. Full bodied, intense, earthy, lovely with milk (make that whole milk). I can happily live with just this one tea.

Absolutely wonderful!

Amherst, WI

This tea literally stopped me in my tracks! I had to go back to the kitchen and read the blend ingredients. I love a good English Breakfast tea but this one is exceptional.
