Excellent tea

Equally good black or with milk. I can get 2 or 3 cups from each measure of leaves.

5* - glad this wasn't a one off but is a core product / still available

I love the smoky flavour - delicious on its own or in a blend

True class

Uplifting. It's my favourite. The blend is just perfect. I drink it with or without milk. And I really enjoy the fact that a small percentage of the price goes for helping retired RAF personnel. I am not British but it's meaningful.

Tasting Notes

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.
