This is our strongest English Breakfast tea. If you are looking for swift power – this is the one for you.   

We have used a finer cut of tea to infuse faster. It has been blended for delicious malty depth and intensity.  Speedy is particularly good enjoyed with a silky drop of milk. 

The leaf is selected from selected fields and harvests across the Satemwa Estate; a small, family run tea garden in the Shire Highlands of Malawi.

Superb, especially with a good quality oat milk.

My favourite black tea, and especially good with a high quality oat milks such as Oatly organic or Minor Figures.

Great hot - but even better iced!

I purchased this tea to replace my morning coffee and, to that end, it was wonderful. I like my tea neat and very strong and Speedy never disappointed and was never bitter. However, it wasn’t until I started cold infusing it for iced tea that it really turned into something magical. Maybe it’s just me but I get dozens of more nuanced flavor notes from the iced version of this tea, done very strong, without ice or sweeteners, than from the hot . . . not that I don’t love it hot . . . but it’s coming on summer here in Southern California and iced Speedy really hits the spot.

Not just speedy, but tasty!

Speedy Breakfast Tea brews quickly into a strong, smooth infusion that goes well with milk and sugar (my preference). It is my breakfast tea of choice.

Greatest tasting tea

The speedy breakfast tea is actually misnamed: I certainly drink it for breakfast but I also drink it throughout the rest of the day. It is delicious. I also love the fact that I am helping to support independent tea farmers.

Deserves its name, and a few more

Speedy because a good cup is ready in two minutes, with another steep available for the second cup. Speedy also because there’s a solid boost of theine which gets me going. At breakfast time, of course. But it's also a fine-tasting cup of tea, one which easily competes, even at its price level, with other broken-up-small premium types. I stretch mine by mixing it half-and-half with some much cheaper Assam, most days. The cup is raised up by the Speedy Breakfast, not brought down by the other. Somehow this rhymes with the feeling that Rare Tea is helping its growers to raise themselves up as well.
