Earl Grey Tea
Offering up wonderful, fresh flavours of bergamot, Earl Grey is a delightful large leaf tea that, while typically served as a black tea, is just as enjoyable when served with milk. With flavours derived from oil extracted from the rind of the fragrant bergamot orange, Earl Grey makes for a distinctive, unique and very refreshing tea.
Russian Caravan Tea
Named for the 18th century camel caravans that transported teas to Europe from as far-reaching areas as India, China and Ceylon, via Russia, Russian Caravan is a pure China Black tea, made from a wonderful blend of oolong, keemun and lapsang souchong. Offering bold flavours, with a hint of Assam, Russian Caravan produces excellent strong, rich teas.
English Breakfast Tea
Made from a rich blend of Assam, Kenya and Ceylon, this bold and full-bodied tea makes the perfect start to your day, but can also be enjoyed throughout the day as a winning accompaniment to light lunches. Perfect when prepared with milk and sugar, English Breakfast is a rich and robust favourite that is both versatile and full of flavour.
Assam Leaf Tea
This large leaf tea produces a delightful amber brew that reveals bold, full flavours. Perfect when prepared with milk and sugar, Assam Leaf makes for a delicious tea that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
English Afternoon Tea
Made from a delightful blend of Assam, Ceylon and Darjeeling, English Afternoon reveals delicate, complex flavours, and can be compared in flavour to the standard English Breakfast tea. English Afternoon is delicious when prepared with a splash of milk, or black with a slice of lemon.
Darjeeling Leaf Tea
Produced in the warm, humid climates of West Bengal, where fresh, clean air imbues the leaves with delightfully floral aromas, Darjeeling Tea Leaf is an excellent, light tea that offers up delicate fruit flavours, which are characterised as Muscatel, in reference to the Muscat variety of grape.
A full-bodied Broken Orange Pekoe tea, offering up delicious, slightly sweet flavours and a rich, deep colour, and made from carefully selected medium-sized leaves.
Nilgiri BOP Tea
A small leaf, wonderfully fragrant tea from the Quinshola garden, which reveals the characteristic, well-rounded flavours of a Nilgiri. Medium-bodied, with the strength of an Assam, Nilgiri BOP can be enjoyed all through the day.
Sourced from the Qimen County of Huangshan City, Keemum is a black Chinese leaf that was first produced in 1875. Creating a tea that reveals delicate fruity aromas and a subtly floral fragrance, Keemum is best served without milk or sugar, allowing the winey and fruity flavours to be truly experienced.
