The Perfect Cuppa - A robust blend of quality black leaves, hearty enough to make any Brit smile. A savory mixture of Indian, Sri Lankan and Kenyan leaves is great with a splash of milk.

We are proud to support the Ethical Tea Partnership who are working towards improving the lives of tea workers and their environment worldwide, including the countries where our British Breakfast tea is from, by making sure they are treated fairly and good employment practices are in place.


Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.

This is a great tea to have at all times in your pantry. Full bodied, and yet mellow. Just enough briskness to satisfy, yet not so brisk as to be bitter nor so mellow to be tasteless. A nice pick-me-up early in the day or mid-afternoon. Follow the directions - fresh water to 212 degrees, poured over tea bag and brewed 3-5 minutes. I use honey to sweeten a bit - no milk, though, but you might like is a great basic tea.

Great morning tea
