  1. Fergusons Ceylon

    Fergusons Ceylon

    Black Tea

    Classic black tea from the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, in colonial times known as Ceylon and still used to describe the teas. Inspired by Ferguson's journal a documented history of the island (originally published in 1859), we have searched far and wide across the island to bring you the best Ceylon black tea. Ceylon tea is bright and lively, medium body and delightfully tangy, best drunk balck and perfect for afternoon tea.

  2. Formosa Pouchong

    Formosa Pouchong

    Oolong Tea

    Taiwan is renowned for its semi-fermented teas: Oolongs and even more lightly fermented Pouchongs ('green Oolongs'). Formosa (name given by Portuguese explorers to the island meaning 'beautiful') Pouchong, is slightly less oxidized than other oolongs and has the lightness and freshness of an unfermented green tea but is sweeter and more fragrant.

  3. Golden Monk

    Golden Monk

    Black Tea

    Complex full flavour large clonal leaf tea from the small boutique Arya Tea garden. Planted at the highest point on the estate, at an altitude of 1820 meters, as one of the highest estates in Darjeeling the bushes grow slower, producing less tea per plant each season. The result, a rich full flavour tea with notably none of the classic Darjeeling astringency but a much sweeter taste extravaganza, a flavoursome red cup with smooth chocolate velvet notes.

  4. Luxe tea

    Imperial Earl Grey

    Black Tea

For this blend we have blended premium grade southern Italian bergamot oil with Keemun, Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon teas. Producing a light yet fragrant, and stylishly complex refreshing brew.
