To many, William and Kate's story is a real-life fairy-tale. The couple's romance has inspired and comforted the nation – much like a good cup of tea. This luxury tea caddy is a special tribute to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's union. The tin holds 20 individually foil-wrapped bags of our classic English Breakfast blend, a fresh and robust tea that delivers a superior cuppa every time.
English Breakfast is one of the jewels in the British tea crown. Bold, satisfying and deliciously smooth, it's the perfect cuppa – any time of the day.
To make this blend, our Tea Masters balance malty Indian Assam with brisk Ceylon and bright Kenyan teas. We use a high proportion of second flush Assam (leaves picked at the peak of their quality) to create an invigorating brew full of rich, comforting flavours. Wherever your day takes you, a cup of our English Breakfast Tea helps get you there.
This tea caddy makes a fitting souvenir to honour a very special couple.

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
