The Big Ben Collection presents four classic blends in a top-quality Big Ben metal tea caddy. The striking design pays homage to the much-loved Westminster landmark, a true London icon and possibly the most famous clock tower in the world. The blends it holds are prime choices for UK tea drinkers, making this a set that celebrates all things British.
- It features:
- English Breakfast
- Earl Grey
- English Tea No. 1
- Green Tea Pure
Our English Breakfast is everything the favourite British blend should be - a rich and comforting fusion of malty Assam, brisk Ceylon and robust Kenyan teas. We add our own signature bergamot flavouring to a similar black tea blend to create our sophisticated Earl Grey. This one’s so good it even won a Great Taste award. As has our English Tea No. 1, an elegant black tea that’s brisk and reviving, with just a subtle hint of bergamot. For those who prefer to go green, our Green Tea Pure is a true classic. A blend of fine Chinese teas – including premium Chun Mee tips and fannings – it offers a lovely dried grass freshness and a naturally sweet, nutty character. Our pure green is high in antioxidants and ideal as a restorative brew to sip throughout the day. With each tea in this collection exuding quality and finesse, this fab four are a welcome addition to any tea break.
Our Big Ben Collection caddy is available in two eye-catching colours to suit an array of tastes and kitchens. Go all-out ‘London’ in bright red, or choose black for timeless sophistication. Whichever you prefer, this is a beautiful London-inspired set to remind you to make time for tea.
You’ll find 10 teabags of each tea inside the caddy, individually foil-wrapped to keep them fresh and full of flavour. Make this wonderful caddy part of your tea ceremony and display proudly in your home, even once the tea has gone. It makes the perfect gift for anyone who’d love a little piece of London in their home, or for those who simply appreciate a great cup of 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
