Description

The original full bodied English breakfast tea blended to provide a rich, robust tea that compliments a hearty English breakfast. Premium loose leaf tea presented in individually wrapped silken pyramid bags to offer the optimum in flavour and convenience. Also available: signature loose leaf tea caddy and individually wrapped teabags. It was customary for the East India Company to bring gifts on returning ships for the Sovereign. In 1664, the Company was distressed to find that no provision of a gift for King Charles II had been made. Accordingly, two pounds of tea found on board were presented to the King, much to the delight of his wife Catherine of Braganza from Portugal (who had grown up with a taste for tea). She introduced tea as a fashionable drink in courtly and aristocratic circles and so began a long Royal tradition of tea drinking and the start of the British love affair with the daily brew. This tea is sourced from a tea estate certified by The Ethical Tea Partnership.
