Our English Tea No.1 is a fresh and elegant black tea with a subtle hint of bergamot. Blended to give a delicately balanced brew, it’s a tea for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
Our Tea Masters balance Ceylon, Kenyan and Assam teas for this blend. They use plenty of high-grown Ceylon, sourced from the country’s central hills. This is where Sri Lanka's finest tea gardens are found. It gives the blend its brisk, lively quality, which we enhance with a touch of our signature citrusy bergamot flavouring.
Subtle yet distinctive, our English Tea No.1 is a delightfully uplifting brew. Try it with a slice of lemon to highlight the tea’s crisp bergamot notes, or serve it strong with a splash of milk to bring out the deeper Assam richness. However you enjoy it, each bag delivers a freshly aromatic cuppa every time.

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
