A fantastic tea with a proper taste, when you compare it with the typical tea bag you will be appreciate the difference and the far superior quality of this leaf tea brewed in the pot. Simply the best.

Lovely!

This is a great morning tea. A nice blend of larger and smaller leaves means you can brew this 2-3 times. Teabags taste a bit bland after this....

The tea I've been searching for!

I just received my loose English Breakfast Black Tea and it by far is the tea I've been searching for !!!! Bold, flavorful and tastes like the perfect "cup of strong English Breakfast" Tea I had visiting London 20 yrs ago and have not found a tea that even came close till now!!! Thank You!!!

A more delicate flavour than a modern Breakfast tea, it has soft florals balanced by smooth, malty notes.

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.  If you enjoy your tea with milk, please use water at 100°C (212°F).

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusion

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

Cost Per Cup

12p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
