Looking for an English breakfast tea that will provide you with a morning energy lift minus the energy crash that inevitably follows a strong coffee?  Look no further than Breakfast Boost, Twist Teas’ invigorating blend of Assam and Ceylon black teas, with added yerba mate and Siberian ginseng.


What is black tea?

After water, black tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world. Black tea is a drink made from the oxidised leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant.  First discovered in China, tea is now grown in several tropical regions across the world. Breakfast Boost is a blend of two black teas, Indian Assam and Ceylon black tea.


What is Assam tea?

Assam tea is tea grown in the Assam region of India. Bordered by Bangladesh and Bhutan, the region has a climate ideal for tea production: cool, dry winters, and a warm, humid rainy season.  Widely considered to be of a very high quality, Assam tea is often used in popular ‘everyday’ tea blends as it has a rich, full-bodied taste.


What is Ceylon tea?

Ceylon tea is tea cultivated on the island of Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon.  Offering a variety of flavour and colour due to the range of altitudes that it is grown on, Ceylon tea is known for its versatility. Ceylon tea is traditionally used in English breakfast tea blends as it has the strength desired to accompany a full English breakfast.


What is Yerba Maté?

Yerba Maté is a traditional caffeine-rich herbal tea brewed from the leaves and twigs of the IIex paraguariensis plant.  Found to provide a smooth increase in energy, without the energy crash often experienced with coffee, yerba mate is also bursting with antioxidants.

What is Siberian Ginseng?

Siberian ginseng is an extract from the root of the Eleutherococcus senticosus plant, a small shrub native to North-eastern Asia. Sometimes referred to as Eleuthero, Siberian ginseng is often used as a dietary supplement aimed at supporting the immune system, enhancing mental performance, and increasing energy levels.


What are the benefits of black tea?

Aside from being the perfect drink to be consumed in just about any situation you could think of, a simple cup of black tea can also have some amazing health benefits:

  • Heart health – animal studies have shown that an antioxidant present in black tea called theaflavin can help reduce cholesterol, thereby supporting your heart health.
  • Blood sugar – theaflavin also helps to lower blood sugar levels, good news for those at risk of diabetes.
  • Gut health – black tea has antimicrobial properties that can help improve your gut health, thereby strengthening your immune system.
  • Anti-cancer properties – the polyphenols contained in black tea are thought to reduce the risk of developing cancer as they can have an inhibiting effect on cancerous cells.
  • Energy boosting – black tea also contains an amino acid called L-theanine. L-theanine has been proven to help focus as it facilitates alpha activity within the brain. It is one of the main reasons as to why it is often reported that tea gives a more stable boost of energy in comparison to coffee.


Are there any side effects of black tea?

Black tea naturally contains the stimulant caffeine.  Excessive consumption (more than 4-5 cups per day) may result in symptoms including jitteriness, headache, difficulty in sleeping or an irregular heartbeat. If you think you may be sensitive to caffeine, or if you are pregnant, we recommend that you consult your healthcare professional about the quantity of black tea you should consume.


What does Breakfast Boost taste like?

Breakfast Boost has a robust, full-bodied flavour and has been created to provide a stimulating beverage to be enjoyed with your breakfast.  Golden in colour, Breakfast Boost is delicious with or without milk.

    I always feel that normal tea never gives me that hit of caffeine in the morning like coffee does. I’m not really a fan of coffee but I just drink it for the caffeine. But this tea is gives me my caffeine boost and tastes delicious. You’ve defiantly filled a hole in the market and I appreciate that a lot. Thankyou!
