Celebrate in Tea Party Style for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
Celebrations will be taking place across the British Isles and other Commonwealth nations this year to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, with a four-day bank holiday weekend in the UK from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June. Street parties are being organised that will give people an opportunity to socialise with neighbours and meet new friends.
Whether you’re planning a street party, or your own royal garden tea party at home to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, tea, sandwiches and cake will usually be on the list of requirements. Tea-Direct can help you here, with a selection of teas fit for a queen, to enjoy with family, friends and neighbours on this special occasion.
Our Best of British Tea Gift Pack offers a carefully chosen selection of teas with a British connection, and contains eight different packs of some of the finest loose leaf teas. The gift pack includes English Breakfast Tea, Mayfair English Breakfast Tea, Scottish All Day Tea, Irish Breakfast Tea, English Royal Tea, Everyday Yorkshire Tea, Best Lancashire Tea and Scottish Breakfast Tea.
Classic Royal Tea is a delicious black tea created from a blend of orange pekoe, flowery pekoe souchong and flowery orange pekoe leaves. An energising tea with a malty flavour and toasty notes.
English Afternoon Tea is a wonderful blend of Assam, Ceylon and Darjeeling tea leaves, to reveal delicate, complex flavours. This refreshing tea is perfect to drink on a sunny afternoon, with a splash of milk or slice of lemon.
English Royal Tea combines black and traditional pan-fired green tea leaves from Kenya, Sri Lanka, India and China. The addition of cornflower petals and jasmine blossoms gives this tea a delightful floral aroma.
And with the weather warming up, iced teas or cold-brewed teas are bound to go down well. From delicious, traditional black teas to fruity teas and tisanes, a refreshing pitcher of cooling iced tea will grace any party table. Choose flavours such as Passionfruit, Guava and Mango Green Tea, Blood Orange Fruit Tisane, Berry Cocktail Fruit Tisane, Sencha Lemon Tea, Strawberry Cream Fruit Tisane, or something else from our huge range of teas suitable for a thirst-quenching beverage. Add slices of lemon or lime and a few sprigs of fresh mint, and enjoy.
So get that bunting up, wave your flag, and enjoy some community spirit, sunshine (hopefully) and glorious teas on Jubilee Day!
