Best of the breakfast teas

A perfect smooth dark breakfast tea. No bitterness at all when brewed according to suggested time & temp. I would even venture to say that first steep time could be cut back to 3 minutes resulting in an even richer second steep done for 4 minutes. I prefer my tea straight with no additives, however this tea would stand well with added cream &/or sweetner. It will also make an excellent iced tea whether sweetened or not. A pure tea that is definitely a signature.

WK German Breakfast tea is a great tasting pick me up any time of the day. I like it best with a bit of half & half and sometimes a dab of honey if I need sweetened up. I particularly like the fact that the caricature of the tea is such that that a bit of cream adds to it's richness rather than detracting or watering it down.

Not a fan!

Tea was completely bland and tasteless. Will have to try it with honey and review again


Nice alternative to a cup of coffee. This tea was smooth and invigorating.

Fantastic, but not as good as Scottish Breakfast

I will admit, I am not a fan of malt. This tea is very smooth, very delicious, and is a fantastic breakfast tea. However, compared to Scottish Breakfast, this tea does have a bit of a malty taste at the finish. Because of that, I use Scottish Breakfast as my daily breakfast tea.
