Top Five Full Bodied Morning Teas

full bodied morning teas

Full bodied black teas are good morning teas. A black tea will give you a little dose of caffeine to get you moving in the morning. The strong flavors go well with breakfast foods, pastries, or breads served with jam or honey.

Irish Breakfast Blend

  • a full-bodied blend of black teas, most often Assam teas from India
  • strong smooth tea with a malty flavor and an energizing finish
  • good with milk and sugar or a bit of lemon

English Breakfast Blend

  • English Breakfast Blends typically include Assam, Ceylon, Kenyan, and Keemun black teas
  • a rich and aromatic brew – brisk, malty, full-bodied and robust
  • tastes good with milk and sugar – particularly suited for a hearty breakfast

Kenya Blend

  • Kenya produces one of the best quality black teas in the world
  • provides a strong, balanced flavor
  • especially good with rich foods or chocolate


  • Assam is full-flavored
  • rich, smooth and malty; bold and full-flavored
  • good with milk – a great breakfast tea


  • Yunnan province in China has been producing teas for over 1,700 years
  • earthy, robust and assertive with a molasses-like sweetness
  • a good choice for breakfast – pairs well with sweets

TIP: If you find that your black teas are brewing up slightly bitter, steep the leaf for less time or add a little milk and/or sweetener.
For something different, I suggest adding Matcha to your favorite morning tea list. Matcha lowers stress while maintaining alertness.


  • made from steamed Tencha tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder
  • a thin, frothy, concentrated green drink that has a pronounced grassy flavor
  • pairs well with sweet foods
