Ingredients

100% Black Tea

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

We believe that how you make your tea is equally as important as the tea you use, so here's how we like to make our tea.
  • Use one rounded teaspoon per person
  • Allow freshly boiled water to cool for two to three minutes
  • Pour on and brew for 3 to 4 minutes
  • Add milk and sugar to taste
And, for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!

About Black Tea

Black tea, just like green tea, comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant.

After plucking, the leaves are laid on drying trays & withered to remove some moisture and to make them more pliable.

The leaves are then rolled and may be cut

"Broken" leaves are laid out & a heady mixture of warm air, aromatic juices, bacteria & enzymes leads to oxidation (a natural reaction that affects strength & colour)

Oxidation is stopped by firing the leaves with hot air until they are the right (brown) colour depending on the region as the leaves dry they turn black.

It would have been excellent but for the way you changed your website. I had to phone to find out why my password, which I had successfully used for some years, was being rejected; there was nothing on the website to inform users that everyone needed new passwords.
Your call centre staff and delivery service are excellent.
