Whether you are looking for a tea to pair with croissants or you want to know what to eat with english breakfast tea - we have got the perfect pairing for your breakfast.

When it comes to breakfast, do you prefer to have something sweet or do you like to go for something savoury? Maybe you like to mix and match? Wherever your tastes lie, our guide will show you what tea to drink with your most important meal of the day.

There’s a lot to be said on the brilliance of wine tasting and the skill of matching a glass of wine with its dream dish. But have you thought about matching your cuppa to your croissant? Or your morning brew to your breakfast burrito? In our guide we will show you exactly which tea you should be drinking in the morning – whether you’re tucking into a traditional fry-up or looking for something a bit more exotic.

Tea and Kedgeree

Kedgeree is made up of cooked, flaked fish, rice, parsley, hard-boiled eggs, curry powder, butter or cream, and sometimes sultanas. This is certainly a breakfast to set you up for the day ahead. If you’re a tea drinker then reach for a mug of Green Sencha, which will complement the rice in the dish, and provide a pleasing sharpness in contrast to the spices in the kedgeree.

Tea For Continental Breakfast

A continental start to the day means that the tea that accompanies it must be of the highest quality. A cup of Earl Grey is the perfect tea for a continental breakfast. The tea has a full-bodied flavour with a sweet fragrance and a hint of ripe bergamot orange. In general Earl Grey should be enjoyed with sweet or creamy foods, which is why it goes so well with the sweet, flaky pastry of the croissant.

Tea for a cooked breakfast

When it comes to a cooked breakfast, the best tea has to be another classic start to the day - a cup of English Breakfast tea. Introduced to London by Queen Victoria, this tea is the best way to start the day. And thanks to the strong, rich aroma of citrus fruits it’s a great all-round, refreshing tea. Perfect!

Tea and Muesli

Muesli is the best choice of breakfast for a busy day ahead. The combination of the oats, dried fruits, nuts and grains will give you the energy you need, while the mixture of textures with sweet and savoury flavours makes it taste good! To match this winning combination we have paired it with a bright cup of Summer Berries. It has a natural freshness, with bitter-sweet juiciness that matches the dried fruits brilliantly.

Coffee With Breakfast

Tea for spicy burritos

Spicy burritos is an adventurous breakfast choice - but not one that should be overlooked. A cup of Jasmine Blossom tea accompanies it perfectly. The liquor has a very clear light, yellow-green hue with a fresh fragrance and pleasing sharpness in the taste.

Smoked salmon royal and tea

When it comes to smoked salmon for breakfast the best tea is a cup of Darjeeling tea. This is a pale amber brew with a harmonic combination of fruit and flower aromas with flashes of farmed Muscatel grape.
