RAFA Tea for Heroes

I received my first tin in 2012 as a gift from my sister as Dad was our RAF Hero. It's been my comfort tea ever since. A lovely tea for everyday and anytime.

I have enjoyed this tea for the last 8 years or so. A life saver when we moved to the US and a mainstay in our cupboard.

Our wake up drink

Excellent. Since we discovered it some years ago it has been preferred as our first drinks of the day

Tea with a lift and a spur!

Such a refreshing, emboldening brew! I look forward to brewing a little pot for myself once the baby has gone to sleep in the afternoon and it spurs me on with my chores. Its a lovely bold flavour but also delicate and refreshing at the same time. It perks me up and sustains me fr the rest of the day. I often have a second infusion which is just as lovely. Best part of my day!

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.
