A good choice
This is not a kick you in the head, first thing in the morning to get going tea. This is a nice mellow tea to sip along with a Danish for a nice breakfast.
Because of the high caffeine levels be aware that a case of jitters might follow because you consumed too much as the tea is such a nice mellow one to just keep on drinking. Give it a try and enjoy.

We have missed Golden Moon for several months due to a computer malfunction and lack of memory on my part. We realized after having to drink "name brand" teas that Golden Moon is the best!
Recently got our order for four of our favorites including French Breakfast and again realize why Golden Moon has been our favorite choice for years!!

My go to breakfast tea
I buy this in 16 bags to have whenever I want a “real cup of tea” instead of coffee. The caffeine level is perfect for the morning however not at nighttime if you’re heading for bed. Very pleasant flavor with a slightly sweet follow through even after it cools down.
French breakfast tea
This tea is so good. Very smooth, strong but not at all bitter. I have two cups every morning.

French Breakfast Tea
French Breakfast Tea from the Golden Moon Tea Co. is a delight. If you like a mild black tea, this is a great one to try. I drink it without milk. It is wonderful with breakfast and also goes nicely with scones for afternoon tea!

i bought the small pouch of French Breakfast to try - both my husband and i like this. high caffeine so we don't drink a lot of this, but do have a small glass at lunch or with snack. still experimenting with brewing times - so it is not too strong, dark. but really do like it - will order again, and probably the larger size! would recommend it to have in your variety of teas.
I've been ordering from Golden Moon since I found them several years ago. Everything I've bought has been excellent. French Breakfast is my daily drinker. This product, and this company, gets my strongest recommendation.

Always consistent quality and shipped fast!!!
Bradley Crouch said:
This tea is hard to get right. If you brew it to get the flavor, it comes out too dark. If you brew it to be smooth, it comes out too light. Perfectly drinkable, but I'd try something else on the menu next time.
Sheryl Small said:
This tea is new to me, and I have discovered I need to brew it a bit weaker than I usually brew my other teas. Now that I have experimented I can say I would re-order it. Just remember that, as the French and Irish are different in many ways, so are their teas.
Sweet and warm
I bought a small pouch of this tea and immediately it became my favorite; now I am back ordering a larger size! The tea has a rich, full and warm honeyed taste. The tea flavor and aroma "float" in my mouth sip after sip. Most flavorful despite it being billed as a "smooth" tea. Definitely a Ceylon taste. The best Ceylon taste ever.

From the perspective of a tea novice
I'm not a tea snob. I don't really know anything about tea -- what makes it good, the different flavor notes, etc. I barely know how to brew it. I just put the leaves in a reusable cup and put it through my auto-brewer.
HOWEVER, I can tell you that I'm very fond of this tea. It has a good taste when left unsweetened. It also works well with artificial sweeteners/milk. And, most importantly, it keeps me caffeinated through my work-from-home shift. I can't drink coffee due to stomach and blood pressure issues, so this is ideal for me.
I buy the 1/2lb bag, it ships quickly and lasts a good while. Drink it every day that I have to work. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a basic, easy tea that will keep you going.
Tammy Lewis said:
I love this tea so much that I started buying it in bulk.
I am using French Breakfast tea for more than a year now. I am very satisfied with the flavor. The company are doing great with notices about the incoming order, and ships every time on schedule. I am completely satisfied with the product and the company as well. Recommend.
Cheryl E said:
As a fan of breakfast teas, I was anxious to try French Breakfast. I was not disappointed! It is a very enjoyable, mellow tea. A new favorite of mine.
Rebekah Thatcher said:
Smooth, versatile, all-day tea!
I drink this tea every morning for a smooth, strong, but not bitter black tea. In the afternoon I add some Madagascar Vanilla for nice relaxing version, or some Tippy Earl Grey for a brighter afternoon cup. It also re-steeps well: At least 2 cups. My favorite tea.
Susan Breton said:
French Breakfast: Superb tea
Golden Moon Tea’s French Breakfast became one of my top 10 the moment I tasted it. It is rich and smooth with a full mouthfeel and a lingering finish. It is wonderful with a breakfast of any type or as an afternoon pick-me-up. I enjoy this tea often.
Jacquelyn Hardy said:
With cold weather setting in this is a great tea for the season!

Wonderful Golden Moon Teas...never fail to please!
Although I (usually) start my day with a porcelain mug of my personal blend of cold brewed coffee, I am very much an "all day" die hard tea-aholic. Golden Moon's French Breakfast is one of the 5 teas that I regularly purchase from G.M. Personally, I find the French Breakfast blend wonderful...along with their English & Irish Breakfast blends...I think all are superb. Truly, I've never seen a French Breakfast Tea blend anywhere else. I do love the English & Irish Breakfast blends, but the French Breakfast blend is my favorite of the three...it's marvelous for any time of the day. The other two teas I purchase from Golden Moon are Sinharaja & Tippy Earl Grey, both are excellent. I hope they will always have these 5 teas in their inventory
Unfortunately, I don't like this tea very much. The best thing I can say about it is that it is smooth--no bitterness, at least from a first infusion. It took me a little experimentation to brew this tea so it was actually drinkable--when brewing it the way I normally make a breakfast tea, it was weak and insipid, though still smooth. By the time I figured out the best way to make it, it was basically gone. While it is smooth, and a first infusion is not bitter, it is also lacking in body and flavor, even after getting the steep as good as possible. I don't alway drink breakfast tea with milk and sugar, but I frequently like to, and adding milk to this tea blands out the flavor even more and is not a good idea. It also can't stand up to a second infusion, at all. Upon a second infusion, it is even weaker and gets an unpleasant taste, bordering on bitter. This tea is inexpensive enough that a second infusion isn't a necessity in order to get your money's worth but I like to do multiple infusions when possible--it just isn't possible with this. If there were a way to get 2 or 3 times the "oomph" into this tea, without adding bitterness, I think I might like it quite a bit but, as it is, I will not be purchasing it again!

Smooth, floral, and delicious
This is my go-to morning tea. It's completely delightful.
Julie Johnson said:
I have been a customer of Golden Moon for over 20 years and there are very few tea sources that I trust for consistency. French Breakfast is my favorite black varietal here. Great depth of flavor, no bitter edge and velvety.
Debbie McDonald said:
What's your mood, English Breakfast or French Breakfast?
I drink several cups of black tea, no sugar or milk, just black tea first thing in the morning and English Breakfast has been my tea of choice for several years but when I reordered from Golden Moon and saw "French Breakfast" I thought I would give it a try. Both are pleasant straight up and probably their names are much like the civilization described. Like the Brits, English Breakfast is a bit bracing at the end. French Breakfast is a bit softer, maybe more elegant. I enjoy both straight up and depending on my mood and time of day. Always a pleasure to drink teas from Golden Moon.
This is my favorite tea so far! As an avid tea drinker, I look for clean and delicious tea since teas that are saturated in chemical will give me a headache. This tea is wonderful, and I can drink it without getting a headache!
The perfect black tea!
This is my favorite black tea in the whole world! It's extremely affordable, high quality and doesn't go bitter if I oversteep it a little. I've been making cold brew tea with this all summer long and all my guests ask where this tea is from because it is just that delicious. Worth buying over and over again forever :)

French Breakfast Tea
I enjoy Golden Moon's teas immensely. I like black tea so I'll go through phases where I'll order English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast teas and am currently in the French Breakfast phase! It's delicious - full bodied without being over powerful.
Nicole Olivares said:
I grew up on Louisiana sweet tea and after making the switch to organic and loose leaf, I struggled to find a favorite. I decided on a whim to try this company. I can't say enough good things about their teas. I have tried many of them but routinely come back to the French Breakfast. I like it as iced tea and also hot with milk and honey. It isn't quite the same as I was used to but I really like the flavor.
Ernie Durham said:
I really like the taste of the French Breakfast tea! The hints of honey make this tea unique and notable. Perfect for any occasion!
Greg H. said:
Great tea company
Golden Moon is the only place I buy loose teas. All the teas I have tried are excellent! I mainly buy the Irish, British and French breakfast teas, but also like the mint tea.
Kamron Dillard said:
This tea is by far the best tea I have ever had and has been exactly what I have been looking for, it's rich, has a dark robust flavor, but is somehow still very sweet and honeyed. I am in love.

Breakfast with a touch of class
I really love the smoothness of this breakfast tea I drink it straight up with a little honey.
It probably would go great with your morning buttered roll, bagel, etc.

French Breakfast is my favorite tea with lemon!
I love French Breakfast with honey and lemon. It's the second time I've ordered it--I tried it, and now I can't go back to "regular" tea in tea bags.

The Best Tea EVER
About a year ago, our friends had us over to their place for snacks - and tea and coffee. I am not a coffee drinker, but a tea drinker. Barb made me a cup of tea that was the BEST TEA I have ever tasted!!! And I have had many teas. It has such a distinct, smooth, perfectly flavored taste. It has become my number 1 choice in teas - and I had never heard of it before. I immediately asked Barb what kind of tea it was and where she had gotten it. She showed me the container and had me take a picture of it - and then gave me the website where I could order the French Breakfast tea and explained how easy ordering was - and the number of different teas that are available. Once you try the tea, you will be a fan as well as and will want to share the tea with your friends. I always order extra at holidays to give as gifts!

Good tea reasonably priced
Enjoying the smooth taste of French Breakfast tea everyday. Great quality at a reasonable price. Nice packaging as well. I enrolled in the auto refill which is great. Good communication by the company when delivery is expected. Also, able to change the refill date easily. Happy to find Golden Moon Tea!
A solid breakfast tea.
A solid breakfast tea. I steep it for a shorter time to reduce the tannin in the final cup.
Not as bold
For me, i add Irish to this mix, on it's own, i find the tea not as strong as i would like it. I don't use cream w/ tea, just sometimes sugar. If the tea is pretty bold & mildly sweet on it's on, then no need.

I am really enjoying this French Breakfast tea. I love it with honey anytime of the day.

Smooth and tasty
Smooth and tasty. A reintroduction for me to Ceylon teas after years of drinking Assam, Keemun and Darjeeling. Delicious in a different way.
Kurt Montgomery said:
Smooth as butter!
This tea is very smooth, and easy on the throat. I prefer it over English Breakfast. This is a great tea for a lazy morning, ENJOY!
t abell said:
Dependably the best
I've been a customer for years, Altho I occasionally try other brands, none ever compare to the Golden Moon teas. I start my day every morning with vanilla jasmine/french breakfast blend and I love it. Never gets old.
Pleasantly full-bodied and fruity. The warm rich flavor stands up to milk & sugar. It works iced too.
Karen McCoy said:
Although I enjoy flavored black teas, French Breakfast is probably my favorite tea. Very smooth, full bodied but delicate at the same time. Wonderful flavor. Love it.
One of our daily favorites
French breakfast continues to be a tea that we enjoy any time of the day. You really can't go wrong with any golden moon tea. But we are black tea drinkers first and this is definitely one that we enjoy every day. Smells great in the bag, brews up with a clean delicious taste.
Tove Ford said:
Of all the breakfast teas, French Breakfast is my favorite. Smooth, less sharp than English or Irish Breakfast tea, but with enough of a punch to wake you up! Like all of Golden Moon's teas, their French Breakfast is clean tasting, robust and made with whole leaves. Always delicious.

Delicious black organic tea . Yummy with milk

French Breakfast Tea
After trying several brands/types of tea, the French Breakfast Tea ☕️ is my favorite morning tea 💕 but most of all is how good I feel after I drink it !
Nice everyday tea
A very smooth, delicious tea for every day drinking.
Amanda Delligatti said:
Great everyday breakfast tea
This ceylon tea is so smooth and delicious, with no bitterness at all but still holds up to cream and sugar. If you're looking for a good black tea that is versatile and has very low astringency then this is a great one to try. I initially tried out a sampler pack but had to order a whole bag after because I enjoyed it so much. It has become my go-to for a good cup of black tea.
french breakfast is one incredibly smooth tea i love it, just bought some a couple weeks ago went ahead and ordered another today so i wont run out .perfection in a can 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Delightful mellow/firm taste!
It's a smooth, mellow, but firm way to start the morning -- an ideal counter to the bolder breakfast teas.

French breakfast tea is milder than English Breakfast,but it has a good flavor and hits the spot in the afternoon.

Best Loose tea
Best Tea ever! Second order of French black tea with a robust taste, but not overpowering. I drink it plain and just a tsp of honey. Pure heaven!
Jeff Mallory said:
mama bear just-right morning tea for me
I like French Breakfast's balance of brisk and smooth, caffeine and mellow, individual virtue and community cooperation. It is an excellent partner to a good honey and milk. The English Breakfast is good, too, but a bit more of the old British hard edge to my tastes. Sinharaja (with beautifully full leaves) is also one of my favorites that pairs elegantly well with my morning toast and jam.
Now about honey for tea: there is nothing more important to me than THE right honey for my tea. And I've been through many honeys with my tea, intentionally and (yo, Starbucks) unintentionally. A sympatico pairing of honey and tea is a divine delight, like Ella singin' with Louis, grooving me effortlessly through my saddlin' up for the day. No better way to wake up.
In California, for years my favorite tea honey was Gipson's Golden Starthistle honey. Since moving to Iowa, I've been amazed to find that almost any light Iowa honey I've tried so far has a well-mannered and delicately floral quality that is perfectly in harmony with Golden Moon's excellent varieties of morning teas. The famous Midwest "nice" seems to apply to the bees here as well as the people.
Golden Moon's French Breakfast Tea, like their other fine offerings, is a lovely drink to start the day. Fresh, crisp, and delicious!

The PERFECT cup of tea
