A cup of fine tea is an important part of the day. From a strong cuppa to revive the senses to an elegant brew that soothes the mood, the importance of black tea to the English can’t be overstated!
- This popular selection brings together three of our best-loved black teas:
- English Breakfast
- Earl Grey
- English Tea No. 1
Each blend is crafted by our Tea Masters using carefully sourced teas from India, Africa and Sri Lanka. Our English Breakfast tea is a true classic, a bold and satisfying brew enjoyed all over the world. Our award-winning Earl Grey is brisk and refreshing, with our exclusive bergamot flavouring adding an exotic citrusy note. Our English Tea No. 1 is a special Ahmad Tea blend, an elegantly balanced brew also enhanced with just a touch of our signature bergamot flavouring.
Our English Tea Selection makes a great gift for traditional tea lovers, featuring three individual boxes with 10 teabags in each. Choose between two colours - an elegant blue and a regal red. Each string-and-tag teabag is individually enveloped to keep it fresh and make brewing in a cup or teapot easier.

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
