Our Classic Black Tea Selection is a great way to get to know our most popular black tea brews.
- It features:

This varied selection takes your taste buds on a journey of discovery, from our full-bodied English Breakfast to our sophisticated Earl Grey, our elegantly fruity Darjeeling to our unique English Tea No. 1.
The English Breakfast blend - made with a high proportion of top quality second flush Assam leaves – is full of bold, satisfying flavours, making it the perfect anytime cuppa.
Our award-winning Earl Grey is based around brisk Kenyan teas, with our exclusive bergamot flavouring giving it an exotic citrusy lift.
Our Darjeeling won a Great Taste Award for its bright and distinctive taste. Our Tea Masters achieved this by blending Darjeeling teas from different growing seasons.
Lastly, our special English Tea No. 1 is a fine blend with just a hint of our signature bergamot. With its delicately balanced flavours, this elegant brew is a tea connoisseur’s delight.
Each teabag in our Classic Black Tea Selection is foil-wrapped to seal in its freshness. So whether you’re after a bold cuppa to get you going in the morning, or a delicate brew to see you through the afternoon, you’ll enjoy each tea at its best with this box.

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
