English Rose Alice in Wonderland Mini Caddy
Out of stock
We love English eccentricity – so we’ve created three mini caddies for our most quintessentially English teas, decorated with the original illustrations from Alice in Wonderland. The rose has symbolised love and royalty for centuries, so who better to grace our English Rose mini caddy than the Queen of Hearts herself? It was during China's 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.
We've 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.
Black Tea, 6% Rose Petals and Buds, Flavouring Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
English Rose Alice in Wonderland Mini Caddyon 02/06/2018Got this mini caddie to match the limited edition mug and teapot and black forest hot chocolate that was brought out this time last year. Looks stunning in my kitchen.English Rose Alice in Wonderland Mini Caddyon 02/20/2018This is an amazing product, the English rose tea is one of the best I have tried, it has become one of my favorite tea. The mini caddy is cute as a button with the Alice in Wonderland theme, and 40g of tea is good enough to sample it and to last you a season.
The only reason I did not give it a 5 stars is because when I went to the store to refill it, they told me that the minimum amount for loose tea is 100g, as the tin is only 40g, they cannot refill the mini tin, therefore you are stuck between buying a bigger caddy, where you can fit 100g, or buying the loose tea in a bag, and then refill 40g at a time your little caddy; but in any case, the cute caddy is useless and is either going to take dust, being empty and useless on your shelves or being thrown away because it cannot be use as it is supposed to be: a loose rose and black tea container.

We're All Mad About Caddies
Our caddies are iconic – and so is Alice. So it seemed only natural to combine the two with our trio of delightful Alice caddies, featuring scenes from Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Have you discovered our Alice mini caddies?
