Our Big Ben caddy is a miniature version of the world famous Westminster clock. Standing loud and proud on the London skyline, Big Ben is a true symbol of Great Britain and one of the icons of the capital. This caddy makes the perfect souvenir for lovers of all things London. It's packed with 20 grams (g) of English Breakfast loose leaf tea and once the tea’s finished, it doubles as a cute keepsake and trinket box.
English Breakfast is one of the jewels in the British tea crown. This charming Big Ben presentation caddy is the perfect reminder that it’s time for a cuppa.
For the blend, our Tea Masters balance malty Indian Assam, brisk Ceylon, and bright Kenyan loose leaf teas. We use a high proportion of second flush Assam (leaves picked at the peak of their quality) to give the tea its rich, comforting flavours.
The tea comes foil-wrapped in the caddy for freshness, ensuring every brew is full of flavour. Bold, satisfying and deliciously smooth, it’s a tea to be treasured at any time of the day. Use a proper teapot and add a splash of milk to enjoy a refined brewing experience like a true Londoner.

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
