Tea Discoveries English Rose Tea Caddy
Out of stock
It was during Chinas Ming Dynasty (1368–-1644) that tea artisans first experimented with buds and blossoms, imbuing the leaves with essential oils. Roses were among the very first flowers they tried and osmanthus, orchids and jasmine also proved popular. Weve recreated the taste of a classic Meigui Gongfu rose tea by using a Chinese black tea for the base, imbued with subtle floral flavours and scattered with rose petals.
The tea might be authentically Chinese, but those wonderfully aromatic notes of rose are forever England. Deliciously delicate and seductively sweet, a single sip brings to mind rolling hills, church bells and country gardens: perfect for a picnic on the village green. As part of the beautiful Tea Discoveries range weve created a bespoke caddy for our English Rose with a pattern inspired by vintage tea dresses. A very pretty addition to your kitchen and an ideal gift for a tea lover.

As part of the beautiful Tea Discoveries range we’ve created bespoke caddies for some of our signature teas. Jasmine's pattern is inspired by the green and white of jasmine bushes, while Chelsea Garden is adorned with garden trellises. Mango & Bergamot takes inspiration from 18th century hot houses, Earl Grey from the cornflowers used in the blend, and English Rose from vintage dresses. Finally we've decorated our classic English Breakfast with some tuneful birds – listen out for that birdsong at breakfast!
