DSC_0279

We blend some of the best small-leaf teas from well-established growing areas in Kenya, Assam and Sri Lanka (Ceylon) to produce this fine quality blend, which has strength, character and excellent flavour. We are sure you will agree that our exclusive house blend takes some beating.

Assam Broken Pekoe

Our Assam Broken Pekoe has a wonderful, almost ‘shotty’ leaf, and possesses all the maltiness and pungency that makes this tea so sought after by connoisseurs. It is from one of the oldest tea companies in India, The Assam Company, and our tasters select the finest teas they produce for your enjoyment.

Lady Grey

Our Lady Grey is a Keemun and Darjeeling base, with lemon and bergamot oil, and startlingly blue cornflowers added for a divine and elegant taste sensation. Very popular with our lady clients.

Earl Grey

The legend of Earl Grey Tea is that during a visit to China, Earl Grey arranged a meeting with a Chinese nobleman on a bridge over a raging river. The sight of the mighty British entourage approaching caused one of the host’s horses to rear up and throw its rider into the torrent below. One of the soldiers dived in and saved the unfortunate nobleman and for this great service, Earl Grey was awarded an ancient Chinese recipe for tea with bergamot oil. On his return to England, Earl Grey took this to a well-known London tea merchant, who called it Earl Grey in his honour. Our Earl Grey is a delicious Keemun China base tea, with natural Bergamot oil added at 1g per kg of tea. This is an absolute classic recipe and a very authentic Earl Grey tea, unlike many on the market today.

Chinese Keemun Peony

Keemun tends to be named after flowers. The lowest grade Black Keemuns are called ‘Daisy’ or ‘Aster’, and the quality goes up as the flower becomes more beautiful. Our Keemun Peony possesses all the wonderful characteristics of a fine Keemun, a slight smokiness, and a soft, almost chocolatey flavour. An excellent tea to try if one is considering experimenting with Chinese Tea.

Darjeeling Mid Season

This Darjeeling is from the Goomtee estate in the foothills of the Himalayas. It has a delightful, biscuity flavour, and can be classed as one of the superior mid-season teas from this famous tea growing area in India.

Rooibos (Redbush)

Rooibos is not actually tea. It is called Aspalathus Linearis in Botanical nomenclature, whereas tea is Camellia Sinensis. It is grown in the Cedarburg mountains in South Africa, and is not successful in may other places, as it has a very long tap root, and not many other areas of Africa have sufficiently deep top soil. The tribespeople of this area used to bruise the leaves of the Red Bush on stones and dry them in the sun before drinking them. Nowadays, the process is similar but more merchandised. Rooibos has no caffeine, and is packed full of antioxidants and flavonoids. It is also medically proven to reduce the body’s production of free radicals, which can be a contributing factor to cancer.

Jasmine

Our Jasmine tea uses shredded Jasmine Petals and Jasmine Oil, which give this tea its beautiful aroma and flavour. We use the finest Keemun as a base for this popular and refreshing tea.

Gunpowder Green Tea

DSC_0287

The name gunpowder is derived from the tightly rolled leaves of this leaf grade of green tea. It is said that sailors occasionally refused to carry it on their ships as they thought it would explode! Today, Gunpowder is considered one of the better green tea grades, with lower grades being called ‘Young Hyson’ and ‘Twankey’. It has a lovely astringent, fruity flavour and a golden yellow liquor that is most appealing.

Lapsang Souchong

DSC_0288

This smoked tea from China is very powerful and smells just divine. You can tell the quality because it possesses none of the rubbery, medicated flavour of low-grade Lapsangs. Lapsang Souchong is often called after birds to define its quality, and this Lapsang ‘Eagle’ is a masterpiece of the Chinese tea maker’s art.

Rose

DSC_0289

Delicate dried rose petals, and a fine grade Keemun tea make this classic Chinese tea an absolute delight to drink. The gentle rose flavour compliments the smooth and aromatic Keemun tea perfectly, and gives a beautifully refined and perfumed cup. Enjoy with or without milk.

Rosehip & Hibiscus

DSC_0290

Refreshing, tasty and reviving. Perfect for fluid replacement on a hot summer’s day, this tisane is a real favourite.

Apple

We use a fine quality Keemun base and add oil, blossom or rind from various fruits to make a tasty and delicately refreshing drink.

Vanilla

DSC_0292

The combination of Vanilla and Keemun China Tea is divine. Our most popular flavoured tea, this contains vanilla essence and vanilla pods.

Wild Cherry

DSC_0293

We use a fine quality Keemun base and add oil, blossom or rind from various fruits to make a tasty and delicately refreshing drink.

Passion Fruit
