Black Teas

Tea leaves prepared in this way have been a cornerstone of Britain since history was worth remembering, and whilst many people are used to the hard, simple flavours of the stocky teabag, there is literally no going wrong with a lovely brew of loose leaves. So, what are you waiting for?

Our patented breakfast blend, malty Assam black tea blended with gutsy, bright Rwandan black tea, is a classic strong pick-me-up to start off the day as you mean to go on; boldly, with a triumphant vigour, and also a little sweetness. Today’s going to be a good day.

First flush Darjeeling, known as the “champagne of teas”, with its fragrantly lifting flavour, blended with fortifying Kenyan orthodox black tea. A lighter blend for luxurious afternoon refreshment: Just the job to complement a nice bit of cake.

Our take on the classic Earl Grey; A popular blend mixed with the internationally recognised colours of Manchester – blue and red. Just be aware, though we appreciate your custom, we will not be picking all of one colour out for you!

The Marmite of teas – you either love it or hate it. I love it. This smoked Chinese black tea is wonderfully refreshing, whilst still packing in as much flavour as you could possibly fit in your mouth. People need to have this in their lives…

There are few things better than a nice milky cup of Chai; A traditional Indian mixture of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves and Assam tea. We’ll see all that and raise you a cheeky wee bit of chilli, to give that tingly sensation at the end that perfects it.
