Winston Churchill, arguably the most notable British Prime Minister in history, was a noted lover of drink. Although he is most known to have had a penchant for the strong stuff, namely whiskey, he also had an immense fondness for a cup of rich tasting English Breakfast. Palate aside, Churchill was also notable for good one-liners. One of his more famous quotes has to do with a nice British cuppa and is taken from a dialogue he had with Lady Nancy Astor, an American who became a member of the British Parliament. It should be noted that the two were not friends! “Winston, if you were my husband, I’d poison your tea.” “Nancy, if I were your husband, I’d drink it.”

Well, luckily for England Nancy didn’t follow through on her threat. Had she done so, we certainly hope that she didn’t intend to taint a cup of English Breakfast as savory and pure as this Organic variety. This is exactly the kind of tea Winston would have quaffed down by the pot-full. Blended using certified organic teas from India, Sri Lanka, China, and Tanzania; this tea is full-bodied, astringent, with subtle touches of jammy toast. With a little milk and a dash of sugar, this tea makes a perfect complement to a proper English breakfast (the meal!). Here’s to Winston, Nancy, and England!

Hot Tea:
Put 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9 oz (200-260 mL) of water in the teapot. Pour freshly boiled water over tea. Steep 3-7 minutes. Add milk and sugar to taste.

Iced Tea:
Makes 1 litre: Put 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea into teapot. Pour 1 1/4 cup (315 mL) of boiling water on tea. Steep 5 minutes. Quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water. Pour into pitcher straining tea. Add ice, top-up with cold water, garnish and sweeten to taste.
