The best morning cuppa

Just love this tea. I have it first thing in the morning and then keep brewing through the morning. It is great value for money too

Breakfast lunch and tea tea

I am so impressed with this new approach to green tea or perhaps a new approach to breakfast tea. This is green tea with backbone. it is get up and go green tea and totally delicious. Congratulations to Rare Tea for creating such an interesting blend.

Delicious, and exactly as described

...a perfect breakfast pairing. I can see myself having this A LOT.

Tasting Notes

A succulent, deeply complex green tea blend with buttery asparagus notes, nutty sweetness and heady floral aromas.


Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum experience use water between 70°C (158°F) and 85°C (185°F).


Infuse for 60 to 90 seconds, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least three times.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.  

Cost Per Cup

19p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.

Different temperatures will bring out very different flavours to this luscious blend.

We suggest trying the 21st Century Blend at 70°C, 75°C, 80°C & 85°C (158°F, 167°F, 176°F & 185°F) and find the temperature that best expressed the flavours you most enjoy. At lower temperatures it is sweeter and smoother but the higher temperatures bring out the headiest floral aromas and deep vegetal notes. Lower temperatures may require slightly longer steeping times.

Each infusion differs as you infuse the tea. For a really epicurean delight – please try making the first infusion at 70°C and leaving to steep for 90 seconds, then raise the temperature to 75°C for the second infusion, for 60 seconds, then the third infusion at 85°C for 45 seconds.

If you enjoy an avocado on toast; an omelette with fresh asparagus; a smoked salmon bagel, scrambled eggs; poached salmon with rice and miso soup or a green juice – try our 21st Century Blend. (For a full English Breakfast fry up, we still recommend an English Breakfast tea.)
