Earl Grey VS English Breakfast Tea

Do you know the difference between Earl Grey and English Breakfast Tea? They are quite different. Learn more.

There are many different types of black teas; it’s all about the flavor intensity and the added ingredients that make a specific tea. Both Earl Grey and English Breakfast are black teas, but there are some key differences.


Earl Grey Tea

Earl Grey is the lightest flavored black tea and was traditionally favored by the British Prime Minister, Earl Grey. It’s a base of Chinese and Indian black tea blended with natural Bergamot oil, from Italy—this gives it its unique flavor. It has a slightly citrus flavor, like a cross between grapefruit and lemon. Earl Grey is flavorful, but it shouldn’t have a “strong” taste and be overwhelming to your senses. Earl Gray can be enjoyed with or without milk and sweetener. It is a very versatile tea.

English Breakfast Tea

Like Earl Grey, English Breakfast is made from black tea, but a blend of Assam, Ceylon, and Kenyan teas. It has a full taste and richness that works well with hearty foods. The flavor has some light floral undertones, and when blended with milk, it produces an aroma similar to warm toast and honey. English Breakfast tea can be enjoyed with milk or lemon. It is a heartier tea than Earl Grey, but still incredibly versatile.
