Mother's Day Tea

The Mother of All Teas

Limited Edition

In 1902, we were set a challenge. 'Bring me the finest tea in all of the land,' came the request from King Edward VII.

Not ones to say no, we set off round the globe. From India we brough Assam. From Sri Lanka came Flowery Pekoe. And from this splendid blend of the two comes a smooth, honey-life flavour that still sets the benchmark for tea, 100 years later.

This was our gift to the King; it's quite the cup. And one we'd suggest in this limited edition caddy would be fit for the queen in your life.
