Dating back to the early 1800's, English Breakfast tea gained its popularity in England, but was given its name in colonial America. It is traditionally a blend of different black teas from Assam, Kenya, and Ceylon. It's blended to go deliciously well with sugar and a splash of milk and is most traditionally associated with a tasty and hearty English style breakfast. To brew the perfect cup use a regular size cup or mug, place your loose tea or bag into the mug and pour very hot and boiling water over your tea. Allow this to steep for a full 4 minutes. The tea should be dark. Add 1-2 teaspoons of sugar and milk to taste. If you find it not sweet or too heavy add more sugar or milk to your taste. Whole milk is recommended for the best flavor.
English Breakfast is a lush, medium toned, neutral brown with a strong violet-indigo color shifting sheen and a large spoonful of pink-red-orange, pink-red-purple, and blue-purple-amber color shifting sparkle (mainly presenting in different shades of purple). English Breakfast contains metal alloy so please use caution if you have any metal sensitivities. English Breakfast is also not lip safe and should not be used mixed with water. Please use a mixing medium to foil this shadow. English Breakfast is a gorgeous addition to a neutral look but with a little twist. The purple sheen really makes this shadow unique. English breakfast is shown swatched over our Power Up Primer.
