For a tea caddy that’s sure to stand the test of time, look no further than the Timeless Collection. Bursting with character inside and out, this vivid London-themed box set features a selection of our most popular blends, decorated with a beautiful oil painting by Leonid Afremov. Inside the tin you’ll find a range of black and green teas, while a rainbow of colours paints a modern, impressionist Westminster skyline on the outside. It’s a one-of-a-kind gift for anyone with a creative flair, especially those who love a top-quality British cuppa.
The caddy is offered in two options - choose between four or nine blends. There are eight teabags of each flavour, so the smaller caddy totals 32 teabags and the larger one comes to 72.
- Featured in the four (32 teabags) are much-loved favourites such as:
- English Breakfast
- Earl Grey
- Green Tea Pure
- Peach & Passion Fruit
- These are joined in the nine (72 teabags) by:
- English Tea No. 1
- Mint Mystique
- Jasmine Romance
- Strawberry Sensation
- Lemon & Lime Twist
Our tea masters craft these blends for exceptional flavour and balance, giving you an array of wonderful teas to choose from. For classic black tea lovers, you’ll find that our much-loved English Breakfast is everything the favourite British blend should be - a rich and comforting fusion of malty Assam, brisk Ceylon and robust Kenyan teas. We use a similar blend for our Earl Grey, to which we add our exclusive signature bergamot flavouring. This turns it into a truly sophisticated cuppa. In fact, our Earl Grey is so good it even won a Great Taste award. As has our English Tea No. 1, an elegant black tea that’s well suited to afternoon sipping. Brisk and reviving, with just a subtle hint of bergamot, English Tea No. 1 is considered one of our finest blends, with its naturally zesty freshness giving you a lift when you need it most.
Black tea drinkers who prefer a fruitier brew are well served with this collection too. Our Strawberry Sensation is a blissful blend of African teas, dried strawberry pieces and our exclusive flavouring, creating a lovely summery brew. Enjoy it as it comes for a brisk, fruity cuppa, or try it strong with a splash of milk for a richer ‘strawberries & cream’ style brew. Our Lemon & Lime Twist is a more refreshing, palate-cleansing black tea. With real lemon and limes pieces, as well as our exclusive flavouring, it’s a zesty, invigorating brew – one of our customers’ favourites for over 20 years. If you prefer things with a more exotic, sun-kissed note, our mouth-watering Peach & Passion Fruit blend is full of ripe, sunny fruit flavours. With its naturally sweet, tropical aromas, this tea can brighten up even the greyest of days.
For those who like a lighter brew, explore our best-loved green tea blends. It all starts with Green Tea Pure, our undisputed classic green tea expression. A blend of fine Chinese teas, it includes premium Chun Mee leaf to add a sweet, nutty character. Rounded and grassy, it’s the perfect brew any time the restorative power of quality green tea is desired. For our award-winning Jasmine Romance, fresh jasmine buds are layered with the same green tea blend. The buds infuse the tea with their distinctive sweet fragrance to create a lovely tea with delicate floral notes. Dried spearmint leaves and our signature mint flavouring add an exhilarating menthol note to our Mint Mystique, a great tea to revive the senses and aid digestion. Our green teas are rich in antioxidants and nutrients, making them especially beneficial brews if indulgence isn’t your thing.
You’ll find eight bags of each of the blends in the Timeless Tea Collection, each one individually foil-wrapped for freshness. This means you’ll have plenty of exceedingly good cups of tea to choose from. The gallery-style box displays the teas in a helpful and clear way, adding another level of satisfaction to your tea selection. All in all, this is a great collection for adventurous tea drinkers or anyone who likes to try new brews. What’s more, the colourful caddy makes a wonderful storage tin. Gift to a loved one or keep it for yourself as a timeless reminder of fond visits to London.

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
