Our Lemon Tea is a deliciously bold black tea enriched with zingy lemon. Balancing the rounded notes of quality black teas with the fruitiness of sun-ripened citrus, this is a truly versatile brew. From a rich cuppa with a zesty twist, to a special iced tea with malty depths, our Lemon Black will keep you satisfied all year round.
To make this blend, our Tea Masters balance quality Assam and Ceylon loose leaf teas to create a rounded and characterful base. The Assam leaves give a rich maltiness, while the Ceylon leaves bring a brisk liveliness. To this, we add just enough of our signature lemon flavouring to bring out the inherent fruitiness of the teas. Then, we include real dried lemon peel pieces to give a burst of zesty freshness to every brew. It’s this careful layering of flavours that has made our Lemon Tea a worldwide customer favourite for over 20 years.
Inside the box you’ll find 100 grams (g) of loose leaf tea, foil-sealed so it reaches you full of flavour. Lemon has long been the favourite addition to black tea for many, so we created a tea that makes it easy to enjoy the delights of lemon tea. By carefully balancing the flavours, this tea works equally well served with milk or lemon, letting you explore both its invigorating aromatic side as well as its zesty freshness. Alternatively, use this blend as the base for an extra special iced tea, perfect for indulging on a sunny afternoon. Simply steep the tea with a little sugar, then dilute and serve with ice and a slice for a sensational summertime brew.

Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
