Bursting with silvery tips and the tenderest of buds, this is an exceptional tea to be taken mid-morning or afternoon and is particularly flavoursome when taken with a little milk.
Royal Pu-erh, also known as ‘Palace Pu-erh’, is traditionally a tribute tea to the imperial court of China. The tea has a high concentration of golden buds. It is aged for 8 years to bring out a distinctively earthy flavour.

This Indian black tea from the revered Assam region has a deep and malty flavour complexity and is the perfect winter tea. Assam is famous for its outstanding black teas and is one of only two places in the world that has its own native tea plant - ‘Camellia Sinensis Assamica’. Cocoa bits give the tea a distinctive note of rich, dark chocolate, making this blend an indulgent treat for all the sense. The roasted chicory root adds a toasty back note and, with the addition of warming ginger, cardamom and black pepper, this tea has a distinctive wintery flavour and a beautiful seasonal aroma. Enjoy as it is or with a splash of milk.
Black Ginger Truffle
This rich black tea blend has deep notes of warming ginger and rich dark chocolate. Reminiscent of a dark chocolate truffle, this tea is an indulgent treat for all the senses.

Mulled Wine Hygge Tea
This tea is inspired by Danish concept of ‘hygge’ which roughly translates into ‘having a cosy time’. Scandinavian winters can be quite harsh with temperatures dropping to well below zero. ‘Hygge’ is often associated with open fire places, candles, blankets, home-made woolly socks and - of course - delicious hot drinks. In Denmark, mulled wine is often enjoyed as a traditional festive drink during the month of December. This tea encapsulates all the wintery flavours of Danish mulled wine and - by extension - the concept of ‘hygge’. Apple pieces and orange peel add a sweet and sour note to this beautiful winter tea blend. The tea is well balanced and while it has a very distinctive aroma, the brew is mellow with an interesting flavour profile. Hibiscus blossom and healthy rose hip peel add to the complexity of tea and leaves a beautiful aftertaste on the palate. A perfect tea to enjoy during the holiday season.
