There are few things as iconically British as a cup of English Breakfast tea, but our nation’s vibrant red post boxes are one! We’ve brought the two together in this delightful loose leaf souvenir tea caddy.
For this blend, our expert Tea Masters balance malty Indian Assam, brisk Ceylon and bright Kenyan loose leaf teas. We use a high proportion of second flush Assam (leaves picked at the peak of their quality) to give the tea its rich, comforting flavours.
The tea inside this quintessentially British post box caddy is foil-wrapped for freshness to deliver a first class brewing experience. Bold, satisfying and deliciously smooth, it’s a tea to be enjoyed any time of the day. We like it best with a drop of milk.
Our mini London tea caddies are a celebration of much-loved British icons. Our post box caddy is an ode to the classic red ‘pillar box’ post boxes, introduced to the UK way back in the 1800s and still going strong today. This mini caddy is the perfect gift for lovers of British tea and British culture. Keep it for storing tea again or use as a safe place for trinkets.

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
