Buyers’ choice of popular Tea blends
English Breakfast Tea
English breakfast tea is the most popular black tea blend. It has a very strong taste in the cup. It’s a perfect blend and works well with milk and sugar.
Further, this typical blend is made from premium quality tea leaves sourced from Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Assam (India), and Kenya.
There are many stories concerning English breakfast tea’s origins. However, the actual name of “English breakfast” came from the American colonies. This happened when a British immigrant, named Richard Davies, started to sell and popularize the blend under the name. Therefore, we recognize this as one of the most popular tea blends in the world.
Irish Breakfast Tea
Irish Breakfast tea is also another blend of several strong black teas, starting with Assam (India) teas. This tea is mostly served with milk in the morning and has a robust, malty flavor and a reddish color.
This tea is stronger than English breakfast tea and is drunk in the evenings due to its sweetness and smooth texture. Many Irish tea drinkers consume four or six cups of Irish Breakfast tea per day!
The Irish Breakfast Tea blend was born in the Second World Wartime. During the war, Ireland took a neutral stand and refused to collaborate in any way with the English. This actually cut off their tea supplies because all the tea the Irish drank came from England. As a result, Ireland soon began to import its own tea and started creating its own flavors and blends different from the classical English tea recipes.
Our Acril Irish Breakfast tea is available in both tea bags and loose tea form and has a deep, strong, dark flavor that promotes freshness and energy.
English Afternoon Tea
This tea blend is a bright medium strength, delightful, and really refreshing. This blend traditionally contains Ceylon (Sri Lanka) black tea, Assam (India) black tea, and Kenyan black tea. English afternoon tea is also served with or without milk or lemon.
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.

Earl Grey tea is a highly distinctive black tea and it is flavored with oil from the rind of bergamot orange, a fruit that is mostly grown in Italy and France. Variations on the traditional blend include Lady Grey (a blend of Earl Grey with blue cornflower blossoms and orange peel), Russian Earl Grey tea (Earl Grey with Lemongrass) and Red Earl Grey (rooibos and bergamot), French Earl Grey (Earl Grey with rose and marigold blossoms), and Cream Earl Grey (Earl Grey with Vanilla).
Masala Chai Tea
Chai tea is a perfect combination of black tea with some spices. The spices are ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and fennel. The traditional way of making Chai tea is by boiling a combination of water with loose black tea leaves, milk, and whole spices.

Hong Kong Milk Tea
Hong Kong-style milk tea originated from England’s colonial rule over Hong Kong. The tea is usually a mix of several kinds of black tea. Its much stronger blend of tea mix is made with full-cream milk for extra smoothness and aroma.
Milk tea is a very popular part of Hong Kongers’ daily lives, typically served as part of afternoon tea, but also at breakfast or dinner. Therefore, we noticed that milk teas are always popular tea blends in the world.
