Best tea

This is literally the best "English breakfast" type morning tea. I never drink anything else. I have it every morning. I buy a bulk bag every time I order.

I love Dark Chocolate. It give me Energy and taste Heavenly!


Always delicious! That’s why I get so many at a time! And great customer service since I goofed and had it originally going to an incorrect address. They fixed it right away with no fuss. Amazing company!

Life-Changing Tea

In summer of 2022, I was on my honeymoon in Colorado Springs having breakfast at a local spot when I noticed some fancier than normal teas on their menu. I was struck in particular by a tea described as a "chocolate breakfast blend black tea with lavender." I have always loved black tea. And lavender. And the idea of this tea with chocolate notes was too intriguing to pass up. I ordered it and then steeped it and resteeped it, declaring multiple times how it was the best tea I'd ever had. Our server told me it was from TeaSpot and before we had even received the check, I had ordered a quarter pound of Boulder breakfast to meet me back in TN when we got home. The added lavender is no longer sold/blended, but I add my own lavender at a 4:1 tea:lavender ratio and still can confidently say that this is the best tea I have had in my entire life. I drink it almost daily and fast forward almost 2 years to now where I am about to order my second 1lb bag. I can't imagine life without this tea and the enjoyment is only heightened by what a wonderful company makes it. I now own multiple steepware products and love them all, and my family habitually gets TeaSpot for Christmas/birthdays, and all my friends and coworkers have to endure my raving about how amazing my Boulder Breakfast with lavender is. Thank you TeaSpot!

Amazing Breakfast Tea

I almost didn't try this tea. The smell of chocolate was overwhelming when I opened the bag and I wasn't looking for a chocolate flavored tea. However I was very surprised after heating the tea the chocolate smell isn't as strong and the taste of chocolate is just subtle. It is actually a unique but very tasty breakfast tea.
