Our distinctive, black and silver gift box lined with an image of a green tea field containing a selection of eight classic teas in heat sealed foil packets. All teas come with a label with tasting notes and instructions for brewing. Contents are subject to change but generally contain an Assam, Darjeeling, Ceylon, Yunnan, Keemun Black, White, Green and an Earl Grey tea. A good mix of traditional and less well known teas.

- Review by Leon
I will never go back to tea bags. These teas are so much more flavoursome and aromatic and make your bog-standard cuppa seem awfully bland. I'm definitely a convert and have just made my next order online.
I'm no pro when it comes to tea but as a 'beginner' I instantly appreciated the subtle and more complex flavours of these tasty teas. With my preferences I found the Assam and Ceylon to be the most appealing, despite previously dismissing Ceylon tea. I'd mostly dismissed green tea too but to me this one was very different to what I'd tried before. It was light and fresh with no bitterness and there's just something uplifting about it :-D I'm still getting used to the Darjeeling but it's better every time I try it (some experimentation in brewing helps too). The Chinese tea I received I think has quite a pleasant smoky flavour but isn't as complex as the others. What I like though, is that all these teas are very different so you get a good sample across the range- perfect for the newcomer wanting to train their tastebuds or see what they prefer.
Highly recommended! (Posted on 15/01/2015)
