For decaffeinated English Breakfast, Stash used a decaffeination process using a completely natural European process that removes 99.5% of the caffeine while retaining all the flavor, color and aroma of the tea. The result is a strong, rich tea. It may be enjoyed with milk or lemon and makes an exceptional iced tea. This flavorful tea is perfect to drink any time of the day.
The prototype for English Breakfast was developed over a hundred years ago by the Scottish Tea Master Drysdale, in Edinburgh. Marketed simply as "Breakfast Tea", it became popular in England due to the craze Queen Victoria created for all things Scottish. Tea shops in London, however, changed the name and sold it as "English Breakfast Tea". English Breakfast has become a favorite of tea drinkers worldwide and is the tea most often enjoyed during English High Tea.
