LET’S TALK TASTE
We like things to be on the bold side here in Brooklyn, and like our diverse community we've got here a curated blend of black teas from India's Assam and Nilgiri region, which combine to make Brooklyn Breakfast a lush, malty and full-bodied brew with a honeyed aroma. A bit like the bold and untamed streets of Brooklyn.
WHAT'S REALLY BEHIND THE NAME
I can't escape my childhood tea drinking habits. I just remembered the tea was super strong and I loved it with milk and a copious amount of english biscuits. I've gotten rid of the milk since but not the biscuits. Brooklyn Breakfast reminds me of both my childhood and when I first moved to New York in 1996 for University. Twenty five years later, this city has toughened me up as it does to all of us, before you decide to move to the west coast to retire.
I got my first start in business and adult life in New York city and this strong brew is homage to that. Cheers to grinding it out.
Burnt umber, Brisk, Malty undertones
Use spring or filtered water for best results. Allow boiled water to stand for a minute then steep for 3-4 minutes or to taste. You can use a 16 oz tea pot. Remove sachet [very important]. We like it with/without organic whole milk.

WHAT ARE THE SACHETS AND PACKAGING MADE OF ?
Great question. Our sachets are plant-based. We only use a NON-GMO sugarcane based compostable bag that is sealed ultrasonically [without glue] attached to a string and paper. This tea bag can be commercially composted. If you purchase the sachets in the individually wrapped format that are recyclable they come with a foil barrier to preserve freshness.
The tin can is sold empty as storage. This is an ideal option should you wish to purchase either format. You can fit anywhere from 12-15 sachets in the 8 oz empty tin can on offer, in each flavor. This helps keeps your pantry organized.
