This mini telephone box caddy is a pretty replica of the traditional red telephone boxes dotted around Britain. Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1924, these convenient phone kiosks became an iconic symbol of Britain, with their striking red colour making them easy to spot on street corners. A perfect souvenir or gift for a loved one, this red telephone box caddy is packed with 25 grams (g) of our English Afternoon tea blend.
Our English Afternoon is an uplifting black tea blend with a gentle note of bergamot. Presented in a quintessentially red miniature British telephone box caddy, it’s just calling out to be served with your afternoon tea.
Our Tea Masters balance delicate Darjeeling with malty Assam, rich Kenyan and brisk Ceylon teas for this blend. This gives our English Afternoon its full yet lively flavour. A little of our signature bergamot flavouring adds an exotic citrusy note, placing it between our English Breakfast and Earl Grey teas in style.
Delicately balanced, with a rounded, uplifting character, our English Afternoon makes a lovely restorative cuppa. Try it lightly steeped for an energising brew, or add a slice of lemon to bring out the tea’s zesty notes. To really enjoy at its best, serve it strong with a splash of milk and some scones as the perfect teatime pick-me-up. And once the tea's all gone, use it to store smaller items or refill with tea again and again.

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
