There is no custom more exemplary of the English tea drinking tradition than the ritual of savouring tea and biscuits in the afternoon. What started in the 17th century as much needed refreshment between breakfast and dinner, afternoon tea is now an important fixture of British life. Our English Afternoon tea combines carefully selected Keemun tea from the Anhui Province in China with Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka. Keemun teas are light to medium bodied, smooth and slightly sweet in taste. Ceylon teas are bright in colour, crisp and refreshing. Blended together, these two varieties provide a modern twist to a storied tea that is perfect as an afternoon pick-me-up or whenever you need a little lift.

      My favorite tea to buy at the grocery store! It’s sweet and (despite the name) good for any time of the day.

      Yum! Bring on the China cups and saucers! Great with sugar cubes and cream.

      This is a pretty good, solid, tea. I used to drink it more often before I started to branch out and try other flavors & loose leaf teas.

      This is my favorite plain black tea. Light and smooth, almost sweet.
