The best-known British inspired Classic Blends use a mix from the three great tea production regions; China, India and Ceylon.
Classic blends skillfully combine the aromas and tastes of different teas, depending on the time of day for which the tea is meant.
India and Ceylon broken leaf teas are often blended for stronger breakfast teas, or in whole leaf for lighter afternoon teas.
Generally Assam and Ceylon whole leaves are used for the tea body and Darjeeling leaves to add flavour.
All classic blend black teas can take milk.
