TEA

Tea, high quality tea, green tea, black tea | Imperial Teas

Our range of tea is chosen from thousands of samples sent to us each year from the producing countries around the world. No speciality worthy of the name passes us by and often we are the exclusive stockists in this country, if not Europe, of the world's finest and most rare varieties. We now have a special relationship with growers and their agents in the country of origin and this gives us access to teas picked on as little as one morning of the year in the greatest tea gardens of the world and even teas that are grown only for us by special order. This also enables us to keep a good supply as demand for unusual teas has grown over the past ten years and there is fiercer competition for the limited stock. These rare teas are part of our range of over four hundred types. In offering so many, teas that standing on their own would seem like one of the most precious things in the world can slip by unnoticed. We urge you to be as experimental as possible and to take time to discover and enjoy the little gems gracing our shelves.

Tea cultivation is as complex, if not more so than wine producing, so it should not be a surprise to see so many varieties on offer. Great variation in quality and flavour exist, even from the same bush in the same garden! These variations are a result of many things such as climatic conditions, soil type, time of year, how the leaves are picked and as importantly, how they are processed. It is a perfect balance of nature and nurture. Despite this almost boundless choice, most of the tea drunk in this country is blended to remove these unique characteristics and provide a homogenised product where choice is limited to which shape of teabag you prefer! Although as a nation we are one of the largest tea consumers it is widely acknowledged that nearly all of the tea imported into Britain is of the poorest quality imaginable. For the past 25 years we are pleased, with your support and enthusiasm, to have played a small part in changing this.

  1. Matcha Melba Energy Infusion Tea

    Matcha Melba Energy Infusion Tea

    Blended to evoke the flavour of the famous Peach Melba dessert with the energy kick off the famous powdered green tea matcha, used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Who can resist sun-ripened peaches, the slight sharpness of raspberries and the sweet hit of vanilla ice-cream? Reddish golden peach crunchy, shining carrot flakes and merry flowers reflect the summer feeling. The brilliant green of the tea adds a unique appearance to the infusion as well as lots of antioxidants. A delight to drink when a pudding is pushing the calorie counter! Learn More

    Matcha Colada Energy Infusion Tea

    “If you like Piña Colada...” then you’ll love this alcohol free variation! We don’t really need to describe this classic flavour but we loved the idea of recreating a longstanding classic of the cocktail world with the energy kick of the famous powdered green tea matcha, used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Sweet, juicy pineapple pieces make the perfect foil to the soft, creamy coconut chips and delicate coconut shreds that combined make this perfect summer creation. Learn More

  6. Sencha Kombucha with Plum Green Tea

    Sencha Kombucha with Plum Green Tea

    Despite its remarkable properties, Kombucha cultivation proved too much trouble for most of us. Luckily it can now be bought in powdered form to which we have added the benefits of green tea and some subtle fruit oils to create a delicious, simple health drink. This fine quality tea is produced in Japan. The very fruity scent of plum and mirabelle is a pleasure, especially in spring and summer time. Learn More

    This garden produces many of the best tasting teas in Assam and this exquisite batch is no exception. It has a creamy, delicious malty flavour with hints of dark chocolate, caramel, rose, dates and a sweet honey-like finish. Like the finest 2nd Flush teas from Darjeeling, there are notes of muscatel, citrus and cinnamon. It has a lighter, golden colour not found in many Assam teas and is, unusually for an Assam, very drinkable without milk. This tea was previously listed as Marangi. Learn More

  8. Love from Lincoln Black Tea

    Love from Lincoln Black Tea

    Only the best will do when sending your love from the beautiful city of Lincoln. Perfect as a gift or drink to celebrate a great memory you have of Lincoln. Even if you've never been the flavour is worth savouring anyway! We have selected five of the best black teas in the world, all from Taiwan, to make this stunning blend, on a base tea of finest Assam from India. The liquor will offer a rich, sappy liquor that is sugarcane sweet, malty, has hints of caramel, honey, ripe nectarine, cinnamon, nutmeg, frankincense, raisin, red grape, muscatel, bergamot, rose, mint and dark chocolate. The fragrance is equally complex, flittering through the four seasons from evergreen, wild, mountain meadow flowers and ripe summer fruits. Lincoln was a Roman city and continued its importance through the Norman era when construction of our beautiful cathedral began. Lincoln continues to grow as a modern city built around its historic buildings and heritage. Learn More
