Special Loose Leaf Teas for Tea Lovers

Tarry Lapsang Souchong - No. 24 Ceylon Adam's Peak - No.04 1990 Imperial Aged Pu-erh - No. 81 English Breakfast - No. 01


Tarry Lapsang Souchong

Tarry Lapsang Souchong gains its unique character from the smoke of high-quality Chinese pinewood.
Lapsang Souchang has become a very popular tea -  especially to those who also appreciate single-malt Scotch whiskey and fine cigars. Its smoky flavour is often considered assertive and bold.
Our Tarry Lapsang Souchong has a large, open, black leaf with a sharp note of smoke.

Ceylon Adam’s Peak

The smooth and delicate taste of this exquisite tea can be attributed to the unique weather pattern of the Adam’s Peak Tea Estate, Sri Lanka where it is grown. Situated 7000 ft above sea level, the misty-morning mountain dews and long periods of dense sunlight are what endow this Extra Special FBOPF tea with its sublime flavour. 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

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.

English Breakfast

Our English Breakfast tea imparts a beautifully smooth yet reviving flavour, providing a wonderful start to your day. The tea is a blend of teas from three different tea gardens in Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Drinking a blend of black teas is a longstanding British custom. This speciality version of a classic tea has an exceptionally delicious flavour and a beautiful and distinctive aroma.
