We were inspired by the sights and scents of Covent Garden market to craft this delicate blend of Ceylon tea, layered with hints of peach and apricot. As a homage to Covent Garden's blossoming history as a fruit and flower market we've added a glorious cascade of petals, from cornflowers to bright safflowers and marigolds – it's a little cup of metropolitan paradise.
Black Tea, Flavourings, 4% Marigold, Safflower and Cornflower Petals

Pleasantly surprisedBy SANDRA from NOTTINGHAM on 05/14/2019Was sceptical as not had Black Tea before, was given this in my Nottingham store as a sample to try. This will be added to my growing collection for sure! Lovely flavours and not too strong but not weak neither. Was able to have at least 2 good cups out of the sample.LovelyBy Jack from Durham on 05/10/2019As my first loose leaf tea, it provided a great fruity, floral taste whilst still giving the kick of black tea.A refreshing brewBy Busy Lizzy from Worksop on 05/09/2019I tried a sample of this tea from the Nottingham shop. This is so light and refreshing with a hint of fruity notes - tastes amazing (it also looks pretty in the pack with the cornflowers). Tried a second brew from the leaves and this was also good (but not quite as fruity as the first brew). It's lovely!!! It may also work as an Iced Tea in the summer too!!! Will definitely be buying this next time I'm in store; it's going to be a staple of our tea cupboard from now on!!! : )LovelyBy Jess from Nottingham on 05/02/2019Fruity but not overpowering. Would highly recommend as an everyday tea.Delightfully FloralBy Bron from Birmingham on 04/29/2019A delicate floral tea with a hint of the refreshingly bitter black tea as an undertone. Perfect for lovers of Earl Grey to try something new, or a perfectly balanced afternoon tea.Gorgeous fruity teaBy Charlotte from Nottingham on 04/25/2019Lovely black tea, fruity without being overwhelming. Will definitely try again!Easy drinking, peachy teaBy Bekah from Wolverhampton on 04/25/2019This tea smells and tastes wonderful, it's a delightfully peachy black tea, making it very easy to drink. I'll definitely be putting this tea on my mental wish list, and be purchasing more soon!Fruity tasty loose teaBy Kath from Darlingotn on 04/17/2019Refreshing fruity tea, flavoursome but not overwhelmingNatural sweetnessBy Charlotte from Ipswich on 04/14/2019I love the smell of this tea before you brew it. Once brewed you have a lovely golden tea with a gorgeous natural sweetness, which isn't too sweet. I love peach tea and this definitely has a peach tang. Will be picking up a caddy of this very soon.Wonderfully aromatic teaBy Penandpaper from West Bromwich on 04/14/2019The first thing that hits when you open the container is the wonderful aroma of peach. The tea itself is a refreshing blend, with hints of fruit but without it being overpowering.
It's a tea that I would highly recommend.Delicious perfumed blendBy Simes from Aylesbury on 04/06/2019A striking aroma hits you as you take your first sip. A rich and dense flavour of summer fruits, comforting yet refreshing then hits the palette. Last time I had a tea as memorable as this was in Tasmania!Wish This Was Available In TeabagsBy Loose Caddy from Gloucestershire on 12/12/2018I love this tea so much, but wish I could buy teabags as well to take to work. rnrnSurprised because I'm not a fruit tea fan.StunningBy Daily Tea from Portsmouth on 11/02/2018This tea is absolutely breathtaking. Every sip brings joy to my taste buds. I love a great big mug of it.Great pick-me-upBy Ruth from Nottingham on 05/10/2019This is quite a strong black tea but with a lovely fruity floral flavour - great for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up.Light and floralBy Sam from NOTTINGHAM on 04/26/2019This was a really nice light and floral tea; perfect without milk and quite refreshing on a hot day. I thought it was a bit like Earl Grey but not as flowerySample, really lightBy Ryan from BILSTON on 04/24/2019The smell is amazing, and intense. The flavour was a bit more subtle than I expected but was still a nice cup!

You'll find our Covent Garden store in the Jubilee Hall – on the very site where Samuel Pepys saw Britain's first recorded Punch and Judy show. That was back in 1662, so we've given this tea the number 62 as a nod to a staple of British culture…

Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
