Standing loud and proud on the London skyline, Big Ben is a classic symbol of Great Britain. For a special souvenir to celebrate one of the world’s most famous clock towers, we've created this stunning caddy filled with English Breakfast teabags. Ours is bold, satisfying and deliciously smooth.
Our Tea Masters balance malty Indian Assam, brisk Ceylon, and bright Kenyan teas to create this invigorating blend. We use a high proportion of second flush Assam (leaves picked at the peak of their quality) to achieve the tea’s rich, comforting flavours. The teabags are tagged to make brewing in cup or pot easier. Enjoy yours in true British fashion - with a splash of milk, any time of the day.
Our Big Ben caddy emulates the world famous Westminster clock. Inside Big Ben’s tower, a stack of old pennies balance on top of a pendulum. Since the 18th century, these have been added or removed to minutely alter the clock’s speed. Fittingly, this caddy has also been designed to use as a money box, so once you’ve enjoyed the tea, stack up your own coins inside Big Ben and save for something special.

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
