Curiosities: Drinking a blend of black teas for breakfast is indeed a longstanding British custom. The practice of referring to such a blend as "English breakfast tea" appears to have originated not in England but America, as far back as Colonial times. Davies, an English immigrant, started with a base of Congou and added a bit of Pekoe and Pouchong. It sold for 50 cents a pound, and its success led to imitators, helping to popularize the name. Accounts of the emergence of the blend in the UK give its origins in fact in Scotland around 1880, where it was initially known simply as "breakfast tea". It was in part popularised by Queen Victoria, having returned to London with supply after tasting the tea at Balmoral in 1892 and, despite the Scottish origin, it subsequently acquired the prefix "English".
