I like this tea anytime. It is a nice break from my usual breakfast teas. I usually drink British or Irish or even All Day Breakfast. A cuppa with a good read is a good time of day. I use skim milk in most,but no sweeteners.

I really wanted to like this one, but... April 05, 2013

Jon Tofte


I was predisposed to liking this newer blend, but it just doesn't work for me. I am not experienced enough to identify exactly what I don't like, but the suggestion of "floral" seems to fit. I guess a lot of people do like this tea. For me, Speedy Motors Breakfast Tea that I ordered at the same time is head and shoulders above this one.

I bought this on a whim after reading the reviews. It is a very flavorful, mellow, strong tea (depending on steeping). I had a cup, and enjoyed the black tea flavor, with the mellow/smooth aftertaste, it is a leisurely weekend favorite!

Too floral, too sharp October 04, 2012


Portland, OR

I normally bulk order British Breakfast and Irish Breakfast teas. I saw that this was rainforest certified, and someone said it tasted like a combination or my two go-to teas. So I took them at their word, and ordered a 250-bag of this. Does it taste like English/Irish Breakfast Teas? Not really. The flavour is not as full. This is too sharp and floral....edges more toward Lady Grey. I won't say that I hate it, but I'm not a fan and it took some getting used to. I didn't realize how much I was compromising until, a few months into my stock of this, I had a cup of Irish Breakfast again and felt like my mouth was filled with comfort for the first time in ages. If you like your black tea floral, maybe this is for you. But if you're looking for a full-bodied, rich, dark breakfast tea, don't go big on this one!

Quite Mild October 03, 2012


Ithaca, NY

I want to like this tea, since I support Rainforest Alliance and organic products. So far the flavor is just not strong enough. I'll try brewing with two bags, since I usually brew a mug full and maybe one bag is only enough tea for 6 oz.

Fantastic! September 23, 2012


Manchester, CT

This is my new favorite breakfast tea! I've already gone through a tin AND almost an entire 250 bag refill! For years I was a British Breakfast gal, but this is very smooth and just the perfect tea for breakfast and all day sipping. I love the fact that it's part of the Rainforest Alliance, too!

My absolute favorite iced tea. I hope it will be offered in full leaf as I make 3 qts at a time and it is such a waste of tea bag paper.

I own many, many teas- but this one has come to be my favorite morning tea. The flavor is full and rich. Be warned, other teas will be less interesting after tasting this one.

A new staple March 26, 2012

Don Skinner

Meadville, PA

My taste prefers black breakfast teas. A morning that doesn't start right off with a steaming mug of British, or Assam, or Ceylon Breakfast Tea -- well, I think seriously about going back to bed. So when I saw the first ad for Three Gardens Black Breakfast tea I couldn't resist. And was I impressed. Not only is it aromatic and flavorful, it has durability: I can't seem to grow tired of the stuff, and find myself brewing a mug of it mid-morning, every morning. Indeed, when the can was still half full, I ordered the 250-count bulk bag. Now that's delicious!

I love this lovely breakfast tea. I love that it is Rainforest Alliance certified. I'm trying to get all the shops near me to carry it. I really love to get it in bulk here at the website. Thank you for many wonderful mornings.

Obviously a black tea. I don't think it's as strong as irish breakfast but that's not good. I haven't figured out how much I like it yet, only had a few cups. However, it might replace my irish breakfast.

EXCELLENT breakfast tea, I normally drink green tea. I found this very smooth not bitter and it is very good with milk and stevia, I would recommend it to anyone who likes tea for breakfast or any time for that matter.

New Favorite Breakfast Tea November 29, 2011


Waterville, OH

I am a big fan of the British and Lucky Irish breakfast tea's. When I saw this new black breakfast tea I had to try and was not disappointed! It has a smooth, full-bodied taste. Its appearance is a little cloudier than the British and Irish tea. This tea is great with a little milk and stevia. It definitely rivals the British and Irish breakfast teas.

Just tried this tea and I love it! I usually drink green tea and I was amazed at the smooth clear flavor of this black tea. Absolutely no bitter taste. This tea would go well with everything and would be a pleasant all-day tea.
