A classic

It was the first tea I purchased and it became an indispensable for my mornings. I really feel at loss when I've finished it !

A lovely cup of tea with a great flavour which reminds me of how tea used to taste years ago. It is so much better than the big brand tea bags that we have got used to drinking these days. It is quite economical as the leaves can be used for more than brewing. Highly recommended.

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

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

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