Exceptionally smooth, rich and refreshing. Tropical fruit, burnt caramels, honey and a subtle floral notes. A silky texture and bright finish.
This iced tea is perfect on its own without the need for any additives or sweeteners – much like a good quality English Breakfast tea you might miss out on some of the most elegant, subtle flavours.
For the most sublime flavour, we recommend infusing in cold water overnight – which creates the most nuanced and elegant flavour by slow extraction and is completely flavour stable in the fridge for 3-4 days. The cut is fine to increase the surface area – ideal for this long, cold method.
For an iced tea to sip without anything added, like a chilled glass of wine, please use 12.5g per 1 litre of cold filtered water.
If you are looking for something stronger and adding a lot of ice (which dilutes the tea) or perhaps you are using it as a lengthener for a cocktail (on non-alcoholic drink) then please increase it to 15g or 20g per litre. As with all our tea do please experiment a little to get it exactly the way you like it.
It can also be infused hot and left to chill for a more tannic bite. (In this instance it should be used within one day).
Greater than the sum of its parts...
When we talk about an English Breakfast blend we are referring to a blend of black teas. There is no exact recipe or formula.
The original idea - and one we adhere to fervently - is to make something even better than the sum of its parts.
From amazing communities
You can take a lot of cheap, industrially grown and crafted black tea and blend something pedestrian and not too special. Or you could take amazing teas, grown and crafted by some of the most amazing tea communities in the world, and blend something sensational.
We know which one we’d rather drink. We know who we want to support.
We have combined harvests from Taitung in Taiwan, Satemwa in Malawi and Cloud Tea from the foothills of the Himalayas in India. They have been expertly blended to enhance each harvest and make each tea sing in wonderful harmony.
