Organic Teas

Our organic teas comprise teas from all the main tea categories across black, green, oolong and white teas.

English Blended Teas

As well as the single source 'garden' teas listed in the other sections we also offer classic tea blends are recognised internationally for their distinctive qualities. The skill of the tea taster ensures that consistent flavour is maintained.

Black Teas

It is black tea that is most familiar to us. Black teas are allowed to oxidise during manufacture but there are considerable variations in method. This gives them immense variety of character. We offer black teas from India, Nepal, China, Ceylon and Kenya. We specialise in tea made by the orthodox method and all are the best quality large leaf grades.

Green Teas

Green Teas have very low levels of caffeine (8.4 mg per cup compared with 25-110 mg per cup for black teas and 60-120 mg for coffee). Green teas are fresher in taste and should be drunk not too strong and without milk. China makes many of its finest green teas by hand. We also stock green teas from Japan as well as green Indian Darjeelings.

Huoshan Huangya Yellow tea

Huoshan Huangya 'Yellow Sprouting' tea is a famous (Tribute) tea from Huoshan county in Anhui Province and dates from the Ming dynasty. Yellow tea is known as fresh or spring tea and is a good example of the skill of Chinese tea making. This is one of only a few still made ....

Oolong Teas

Oolong tea (originally known as Wu long), meaning black dragon, are semi-fermented (i.e. semi-oxidised) teas generally grown in low altitude areas of Ali Shan in Formosa (Taiwan) and in the high altitude areas of Wuyi Shan in north west Fujian province of China. Oolong teas are light and delicate. They are picked when the leaves are not too young and are processed immediately after plucking. Oolongs are always whole leaf teas, never broken by rolling. We also have rare oolong teas from Assam and Nepal.

White Teas

These extraordinary teas are harvested for only a few days each year when the buds are white with the down of the new growth. The leaf is just dried and withered and has the lowest caffeine levels of any tea, the tea hardly oxidising at all. It is a very pale tea with a distinctly delicate flavour. White tea should be brewed with boiled water that has cooled for a minute.

Flavoured Teas

Flavoured teas may be made with black, green or oolong teas. Natural fruit pieces or leaves are added to the tea. Alternatively flowers, spices are added. All tea readily absorbs other flavours but China teas are particularly well suited to fruit teas, Ceylon teas to those such as Vanilla. All our teas have a very natural and fresh taste. Included in this section are some traditional scented teas.

Herbal Teas & Infusions

Herbal infusions and teas do not contain tea itself (Camellia sinensis). They can be a pleasant and healthy alternative to tea. As most do not contain caffeine, Mate being a noteworthy exception, they can make an ideal bed-time drink. These infusions are usually made from the dried leaf, in the same manner in which teas are made. Sometimes the flower or root of the plant is used. Our range offer distinct flavours and health benefits, recognised for centuries. All our herbal infusions are supplied loose.

Tea Samples & Accessories

Here you will find teapots and infusers for making single cups of tea without fuss and tea Gift Vouchers and Gift Wrapping which enable you to give our teas as a much appreciated present. Brita water filters are also here to enhance the taste of your tea. Samples of our teas may also be ordered.
