Beautiful tea

The first thing to hit me when I opened this packet was the amazing fragrance, which was better than any other top-brand Earl Grey that I've experienced. The taste was also delicate but distinctive, with slight peppery notes. Delicious!

Morning Cuppa!

I bought (and treated!)my self to the Rare Tea loose leaf Earl G tea after my huge mistake buying Tesco Finest Earl G tea which don’t even resemble tea leaves and tastes of a hot air balloon. What a difference!!! My favourite ❤️ cuppa is the morning cuppa! I drink about a litre of tea in the morning. As one only needs a tea spoon of Rare Tea tea leaves to make a liter/pot of tea it is actually far more economical to buy the largest quantity which, when it arrives, is beautifully packed and the smell just lifts your spirits.

Taste of Malawi doesn't disappoint

First thing I noticed about this superb Earl Grey tea, was the packaging. It comes in a lovely silver tin, which will provide suitable storage going forward. The tea itself doesn't disappoint either, fantastic fresh taste from the tea plantations of Malawi, close to Blantyre, where I lived as a child. A wonderful, refreshing reminder of a fantastic, idyllic childhood. This loose tea will continue to be a treat for me, brought out to share only with special friends!

Tasting Notes

A clean and exceptionally bright infusion. A malty base with exhilarating citrus notes. It can be enjoyed with or without milk, or a twist of lemon zest.

Spectacularly balanced and highly versatile; it makes a delicious cold infused iced tea and a brilliant base for cocktails.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 90°C (194°F) water. If you enjoy your tea with milk, please use 100°C (212°F) water.


Infuse for 45 seconds to 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

16p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
