About Royal Blend

First blended in 1902 at the request of King Edward VII - and actually known as King's Blend until the 1920s - Royal Blend is now serving its fifth British monarch. A combination of low-grown Flowery Pekoe from Sri Lanka and robust Assam from India, the blend of the two results in a beautiful, natural honey-sweetness and thanks to the Assam, a pleasing maltiness too. Bold, strong and bright in both appearance and taste, our most famous tea is enjoyable at any time of the day.

What to eat with Royal Blend

A versatile cup that works with many flavours, we particularly recommend this all-day tea with bold savoury dishes like Welsh Rarebit, or sweet scones piled with cream and strawberry preserve.
