Taking in London’s landmarks is thirsty work, but luckily there’s always plenty of tea to revive the senses. Our English Afternoon blend is a refreshing brew perfect for weary sightseers. Rounded yet uplifting, it’s great for washing down a classic spread of afternoon sandwiches and cakes.
To make it, our Tea Masters balance delicate Darjeeling with malty Assam, rich Kenyan and brisk Ceylon teas. This special blend gives our English Afternoon its full yet lively flavour. We then add a little of our signature bergamot flavouring to give the tea an exotic citrusy lift.
This box of our fine English tea makes a lovely souvenir or gift for tea lovers with a taste for London. Each teabag is individually foil-wrapped, so whether it’s enjoyed in the morning, sipped at lunch, or taken in the afternoon with a cucumber sandwich and a cream scone, these 10 bags will deliver a freshly aromatic brew in every cup. Served with milk or lemon, our English Afternoon is a quintessential English cuppa.
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
