Our Flowery Orange Pekoe tea from China's famous tea-growing province of Yunnan has a rich, malty taste which some compare to a classic Assam, distinguished by strong, fruity bass notes and the slightest suggestion of spice and smoke.
'Flowery Orange Pekoe' refers to the young, unbroken style of leaf, scattered with golden buds to give it that molten treacle sweetness. Simply add splash of milk and it becomes a beautifully mellow breakfast brew.
Rich yet mellow, with hints of malt and spice
Rich, fatty foods, such as roast lamb
For a rather more exotic breakfast
Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be enjoyed with or without milk.

The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…
Yunnan is home to 15,000 species of plants, including 60% of the plants used in traditional Chinese medicine. Black tea has been proven to be beneficial both for the heart and blood sugar levels, so we've number this tea 60 to reflect its medicinal roots.
This tea takes its name from the camel-drawn caravans which travelled the ancient trade routes through Russia to the tea-tables of Europe. A century in the making, this was one of our very first blends: a combination of rich Indian tea, smoky Lapsang Souchong and refreshing Nepalese tea to mellow that campfire smokiness.More Details
Yunnan tea from the south of China is famed for its sweet, spicy taste, with all the richness of a classic Assam and the subtlest hint of campfire smokiness. This exquisite large leaf tea has plenty of golden buds, creating clear honeyed notes and a bright amber brew. Distinctly delicate and never cloying, this tea is well worth trying without milk.More Details
Grown solely in China's Fujian Province, this iconic smoky tea has been dried over fires of resin-sweet pinewood, a technique discovered by accident back in the 16th century; European merchants soon gained a taste for the bonfire brew, and the rest is history...More Details
