Strawberry & Cream Tea is an evocative, summery cuppa, sure to delight the senses – whatever the season. Juicy strawberries, smooth vanilla and seductive rose all add their luxurious twist to this fine blend of comforting black teas. Elevate your daily brew from ‘builder’s’ to ‘berry-licious’ with this sophisticated loose leaf blend.
To create this indulgent strawberry delight, our Tea Masters blend high quality malty Indian Assam with brisk Ceylon loose leaf teas. We use a high proportion of second flush Assam (leaves picked at the peak of their quality) to enhance the rich and satisfying flavours. Onto this finely balanced base we sprinkle real strawberry pieces to deepen the tea’s deep fruity flavours, accentuating them with our unique strawberry and vanilla flavouring. Rose petals add another layer of complexity to the moreish blend. The sweetly fragrant summery notes of strawberry, rose and vanilla combine beautifully with the black tea, highlighting the biscuity notes in the Assam and the citrusy freshness of the Ceylon. All in all, it’s a deliciously flavoursome and rounded brew.
Our loose leaf Strawberry & Cream Tea comes foil-wrapped for freshness inside an ornate, luxury metal caddy. Part of our Fine Tea Collection, the caddy is adorned with a detail from Eloise Harriet Stannard’s 19th century English oil painting ‘Strawberries’. It’s a fitting encapsulation of this fabulously fruity infusion. Inspired by time-honoured British tea traditions, all of our Fine Tea Collection caddies feature beautiful artworks and luxurious detailing, offering an elegant way to present and preserve our finest loose leaf blends.
You can enjoy this tea without milk for a brisk, energising brew, but to really unleash its indulgent, strawberries-and-cream beauty, brew it strong and serve with whole milk, perhaps with a sprinkling of sugar. This is a particularly lovely cuppa for anyone who thinks fruit teas aren’t for them – or anyone looking for an English Breakfast style tea with a difference. So, whether you're treating yourself or buying a gift for a loved one, why not make this Ahmad Tea Fine Tea Collection caddy part of your tea ceremony?

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
