Our intent is to create blends that deliver a magical cup of tea. When that blend wins a much-revered Great Taste Award, there is no one more proud than us. Founded in 1994 and run by the Guild of Fine Food, the awards are the gold standard for the finest food and drink around the world. Since 2015, a number of our tea blends have been selected for awards and in 2018, we were given the distinguished honour of being named a Great Taste Producer.

Our Camomile, Honey and Vanilla Infusion blends camomile leaves, vanilla and dried honey with liquorice root and wild fennel. The judges commented: “The combination of honey and vanilla was delightful and produced deep caramel tones that we consider quite genius.”
Using soothing South African rooibos and aromatic cinnamon this is a wonderfully warming infusion. When this won a Great Taste award in 2017 the judges commented: “This infusion shows a skilled hand. Well balanced without cinnamon overload… A refreshing brew.”
Jasmine Romance infuses specially selected Chinese green tea with pure jasmine blossoms to deliver a rounded cuppa singing with fragrant aromas. The judges awarded this blend for having “a bright, clean tea base with appealingly sweet and fresh jasmine character.”
Mint Mystique blends Chun Mee green tea with dried spearmint leaf and our signature mint flavouring. This is a garden-fresh, clean and invigorating cuppa. The judges praised it for being “a clean tasting green tea with clear spearmint flavours.”
Vanilla Tranquility balances African black teas with vanilla flavouring and real vanilla pieces to create a mellow and comforting brew. The judges commented, “A good, sweet, malty tea… The infusion takes milk well, producing a creamy effect with the vanilla.”
Decaffeinated Earl Grey Tea is a refined blend of black teas enhanced with our signature bergamot flavouring. A gentle chemical-free CO2-wash technique removes the caffeine and retains flavour. The judges praised it for being “bright, full of flavour, very refreshing”.
Our Cardamom Tea is our best-selling tea worldwide. We use a special aromatic cardamom flavour that complements our black tea blend. The Great Taste Award judges praised the tea for having a “bright infusion, with a clean flavour coming through”.
Our English Tea No.1 is a delicately balanced and elegant black tea with a subtle hint of crisp bergamot. The judges praised the tea’s colour, aroma and flavour, describing it as “delicate but robust and full of character”.
Our Earl Grey contains quality Kenyan leaves to give a lively, brisk flavour. Our exclusive bergamot flavouring adds exotic citrus fragrance. The judges praised it for its balance and said it was “a sound example of a strong Earl Grey”.
Our Darjeeling is delicate yet complex, floral yet fruity. Bright and golden in the cup, it has a refreshingly brisk taste with balanced flavours. Great Taste judges praised our Darjeeling for its “bright and distinct flavours” and “long-lasting Darjeeling character”.
Our Darjeeling loose leaf tea is foil-sealed for freshness to deliver a delicate and complex cup with brisk and balanced flavours. Great Taste judges praised this for “sound, long lasting flavour” and for “delivering distinct Darjeeling character” in every cup.
Our Ceylon is perfectly balanced with a brisk and lively flavour, making it a refreshing and energising cuppa. With its rich amber hue and fresh aromas, it suits either a slice of lemon or a splash of milk.
Our Special Blend Tea shows off our Tea Masters’ blending skills. Cherished for its balance of bright Ceylon, comforting Assam and fragrant bergamot, this is a deliciously full-flavoured, intense yet elegant cup for when only the very best will do.
