We’ve united two quintessentially British teas with an iconic London landmark in this Classic Tea Duet. Loved by our customers worldwide, our English Breakfast and Earl Grey are both deliciously satisfying examples of classic black tea blends. Presented in a gold-coloured Big Ben box, this is the perfect gift for lovers of all things British.
Our Tea Masters select the finest teas from India, Africa and Sri Lanka for these blends. Our English Breakfast is a bold and satisfying delight, rich in malty second-flush Assam leaves (picked at the peak of their growing season), plus rounded Kenyan and brisk Ceylon teas. It’s an energising brew to kick-start any day.
It’s the special signature bergamot flavouring that gives our Great Taste Award-winning Earl Grey its delicious citrusy edge. Featuring a high proportion of quality Kenyan tea in the blend, this brew has a wonderfully rounded and sophisticated character. Served with a slice of lemon or a splash of milk, it’s guaranteed to soothe and uplift in equal measure. It’s even won a Great Taste Award, the judges commenting that it’s “balanced with bergamot…. A sound example of a strong Earl Grey.”
Our Classic Duet delivers 20 delicious cups of tea inside its unmistakably English packaging. Each teabag is foil-wrapped for freshness, so every cup tastes as fresh as the last. Whether you sip a strong and milky English Breakfast or a seductively fragrant Earl Grey with a slice of lemon, these two blends make comforting and energising cuppas. The perfect accompaniment to a full English breakfast or a slice of cake in the afternoon, you should always make time for tea.

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
