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.
Brewing up a storm with the RAF
RAFA Tea for Heroes is a very traditional English Breakfast tea of the like we haven't seen for many years. A bespoke blend created for the RAF - when only the best will do.
50p of the price you pay goes to the Royal Air Forces Association Wings Appeal repaying just a little of what so many of us owe to so few.
India & Malawi
The Temi Tea Garden & Satemwa Estate
This tea comes from two beautiful, independent tea gardens; the Temi Tea Garden in Sikkim, India and Satemwa Estate on Thyolo Mountain in Malawi. Both are committed to creating the finest tea using sustainable practices to benefit both the land and the people who live on it.
Henrietta first created this tea for a wonderful man called Terry Clark, a veteran of the Battle of Britain.
"It was a great honour and pleasure to meet him when I made this short film about tea and the RAF. It was an even greater honour to make tea for him.
Terry thought it was rather good. I've been making it for him ever since. We thought you might like it too."
Don't just take our word for it - here is comedian Alexander Armstrong explaining why RAF Tea is worth it.
