Beautiful aroma

The tea has a flowery aroma which comes before you drink it. Fresh and noble taste and the ending aroma is different. I can use it for three days… first day I enjoy full aroma and taste, second day I enjoy it like refreshing white tea. On the third day I mix the leaves with slices of ginger, cook them some ten minutes and enjoy it with honey. Or I mix them with rose lemonglass tea. I love it and I will repeat it.

RAF Tea for Heroes

This tea is so mellow and refreshing.It’s now an essential part of my early morning wake up routine, which I brew in my new RareTea’s diffuser which is just right for steeping leaves in the cup, plus no bits. Honestly, the nicest breakfast tea I’ve had. I can’t start my morning without a cup!

Perfect cup to start the day - balanced & refreshing

We were first served RAFA Tea for Heroes English Breakfast Tea at an hotel in Norfolk several years ago. We enjoyed it so much that, when we were leaving, I asked the waitress which tea they used. We’ve been drinking it every morning since!

Tea with taste

RAFA Tea, the first of the Rare tea Co teas that I discovered and, at the first cup it fully converted me to good quality loose leaf tea. I finally found a cuppa refreshingly full of flavour with the added bonus of supporting the farmers who work the tea gardens.

What a refreshing blend - just how I like my breakfast tea. I’ve been trying to find the perfect breakfast blend for years, and this it it! Thank you Rare Tea Co. Perfect!

Tasting Notes

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


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


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).


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


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

Cost Per Cup

15p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
