The liquor is a deep translucent copper in color. Brewed Pantenger English Breakfast is full-bodied, brisk and fruity.

About English Breakfast
The first English Breakfast tea was a blend of Chinese black tea leaves. It was created in 1843 and despite its denomination, it was a small tea company from New York who named it. At present most tea companies in the West have their own English Breakfast. Pantenger is one of the finest examples of its class. Dimbula tea has been often characterized as a tea that tastes like a great black tea should.
Located in the West Highlands in Sri Lanka, Dimbula is one of the most iconic tea producing regions in the world. The heavenly landscape is surrounded by mountain peaks of 8000 ft, jungle, waterfalls and tea plantations. The tea garden lies at an altitude of 3200-4200 feet and is an idyllic place to grow one of the finest teas in the world. At this altitude, maturation of the tea leaves is slow and the flavor concentrates.
Brewing a perfect cup:
A great cup of tea requires three elements: great tea, water and a tea master (you).
The right amount of tea is 1 pyramid bag / 6 Fl. Oz. of water (200°F – 212°F).
Brew for 2 to 3 minutes
Water quality: filtered or spring water is recommended. Water containing high amounts of minerals or excess chlorine will make your tea tasteless.
