Take a very British tour of London with this Britannic tea collection. Three quintessentially British tea blends are presented in three equally British caddies.
- This set includes:
- English Breakfast
- Earl Grey
- English Afternoon
Sip an English Breakfast that’s worth writing a letter home about, sit atop a double-decker bus enjoying a fragrant Earl Grey or swing by the telephone box for an elegant English Afternoon tea to finish off.
Each blend has been crafted by our Tea Masters using the finest teas from India, Africa and Sri Lanka. Our English Breakfast is a bold and satisfying classic, a tea to be enjoyed throughout the day. Our award-winning Earl Grey is more refined with our signature bergamot flavouring adding a distinctive fragrant note. The same bergamot flavouring lends an exotic note to our unique English Afternoon blend, a rounded and reviving pick-me-up cuppa.
Our Britannic Collection features three iconic miniature red caddies, each containing 25 grams (g) of loose leaf tea. The tea leaves are foil-wrapped for freshness in each caddy, so you get a perfect brew every time – just as it should be. To enjoy them in true British style, just add a splash of milk or a slice of lemon.
Red telephone boxes, double-decker buses and the famous pillar boxes are all national treasures of Great Britain and the capital city. When in London, you’re never far from one, and the Britannic Collection is a celebration of these much-loved British icons. We’ve presented the caddies in a majestic royal blue display box, making it the perfect souvenir or gift for lovers of fine tea and British culture. Once the teas are finished, the caddies can be used to decorate the home with little mementos of London.

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
