🍃= organic

1. Darjeeling first flush PUTTABONG (India) 🍃 – £3.50

The name origins from the combination of the Tibetan words Dorje, meaning ‘thunderbolt’ and Ling, meaning ‘place’ or ‘land’. This crisp tea is picked in spring in the Puttabong garden.

2. Darjeeling second flush SINGELL (India) 🍃 – £2.90

This tea is picked late in summer, as soon as the new flush begins to mature. The aroma is less pungent compared to the first flush, but it is not inferior to it. The longer oxidation in the factory gives it a more rounded, fruity flavour.

3. Sikkim TEMI (India) – £3.50

From the Temi garden, picked in the latest stage of its first flush. Teas from the Sikkim region are similar to their Darjeeling neighbours, and the smaller productions manage to produce an almost equivalent high quality tea.

4. Assam HARMUTTY (India) – £2.90

The rich soils of the lands stretching around the Brahmaputra’s southern bank are the ideal condition for securing an excellent tea. The Harmutty garden produces a tea with a bold, distinctly rich, well rounded malty taste.

5. Ceylon Silver Kandy (Sri Lanka) – £2.90

Produced not far from the ancient capital, Polonnaruwa, the mid-country estates are where the original Ceylon tea gardens are. The leaf is wiry with evident long, silver tips giving an overwhelmingly floral aroma.

6. Nilgiri THIASHOLA (India) 🍃 – £2.90

From the “Blue Mountains” of South India, the Thiashola plantation is the first Nilgiri tea garden established in 1830. They produce a pleasantly light and good bodied brew.

7. Nepal SHANGRI-LA (Nepal) 🍃 – £2.60

Situated high up on the Himalayas, the Shangri-la gardens produce a truly delicacy tea. The slightly sweet character of Nepal tea marks this spicy tea from the late summer picking makes a very pleasant afternoon tea.

8. Yunnan (China) – £2.60

Yunnan is where China meets India, not only geographically but also in the genetics and style of its teas. In this province, tea still grows as wild as the day it earned its host accolade of the “home of tea”.

9. Kilimanjaro MARINYN (Kenya) – £2.60

Kenya benefits from an ideal climate for producing teas: tropical, volcanic red soils and well distributed rainfall with long sunny days. Marinyn is a tea that grows at the foot of the Kilimanjaro and has a flavour akin to Assam tea.

10. Talk of Tea House Blend (English Breakfast) – £2.50

Our signature blend, teas from Assam and Sumatra make a truly delightful brew ideal for the early morning. This strong blend works to perfection with milk and sugar.

11. Early Morning 🍃 – £2.60

Beautifully full-bodied, this broken blend is stimulating yet mild.

12. Ceylon Leaf Decaf – £2.90

Decaffeinated using a high pressure CO2 process without any solvents, this Ceylon tea has all of the original strong character of Ceylon with the advantages of decaffeinated tea.

13. Russian Caravan – £2.60

Named after the old silk route, where legend has it that the teas took on the smoky taste of the campfires. Smoke-dried Lapsang Souchong provides the distinctive flavour.

14. Vanilla Sunday – £2.60

A delicious Assam harmoniously blended with pieces of vanilla beans.

15. Green Dragon (China) – £2.60

From the southern region of Yunnan, this tea is also known as Longjing. The wavy light green leaves have a slight chestnut aroma and the brew has delicate yellow-green tones.

16. Gunpowder (China) 🍃 – £2.90

Produced in the Wuyan area, the leaves of this classic green tea are rolled into tight pellets to preserve the flavour which is often described as thick and strong like a soft honey, but with a refreshing tangy note.

17. Palace Needle (China) 🍃 – £2.90

This tea comes from the Hubei province, where great care is taken in its production. Low-temperature drying preserves the lovely colour and fresh flavour. It has a uniformly fine wiry and shiny leaf. A true connoisseur’s tea.

18. Sencha Fukujyu (Japan) – £3.50

In Japanese, Sencha means “steamed tea”, a process carried to prevent fermentation. With its dark green leaf and fresh fragrance, the taste of this tea reminds of seaweed and has a slightly tart, distinct and fresh note.

19. Genmaicha (Japan) – £3.50

A Bancha, naturally low in caffeine content. The addition of roasted brown rice gives it a slightly tart, aromatic cup with a roasted flavour.

20. Lapsang Souchong (China) – £3.50

Not the typical “two leaves and a bud” are picked for this black tea, but instead the bigger and more robust leaves from the lower parts of the tea bush. Roasting it over exotic woods gives it its typical smoky flavour.

21. Pu Erh (China) – £3.50

This aged black tea from the Yunnan region of China is fermented in a special way and it tastes like no other tea on earth. It is smooth, rich, and often reminiscent of organic flavours.

22. Oolong (China) 🍃 – £3.50

A premium tea that has a woody and thick aroma. This earthy yet light tasting organic tea is low in tannin. Translated, the Chinese word Oolong means “red dragon”.

23. Milky Oolong (China) – £3.50

A variety of Oolong tea that is truly unique. Its character comes from flavouring added at source that causes the leaves to take on a milky, almost caramel flavour and scent.

24. Yellow Sun (China) – £3.50

In contrast to green tea, yellow tea is not processed immediately after roasting but is wrapped in paper or cloth and left to cool producing a hardly fermented tea without the grassy or vegetal taste of green tea.

25. Snow Bud (China) – £3.90

White teas are amongst the most noble and mild varieties in the world. Only the youngest, as yet unopened buds, still covered in silvery down are picked and wilted shortly in moderate daylight.

26. Matcha (Japan) 🍃 – £4.35

A blend of first flush green leaves from Yakubita & Okumidori gardens are picked young, then quickly steamed to seal in the goodness. The 100% natural, shade-grown leaves are then turned into Matcha powder using a traditional grindstone – nothing else is added.

27. Yogi Chai (India) 🍃 – £3.50

The tea is a blend of five traditional Ayurvedic spices: cardamom seed, cinnamon bark, clove bud, ginger root and black pepper. Ayurvedic medicine holds that this combination of spices has unique, healthful properties.

28. Early Gray Blue Flowers – £2.60

A fan favourite. This classic Earl Gray combines his signature bergamot flavour with the gorgeous scent of cornflower petals.

29. Rose Congou – £2.60

Blended with freshly picked rose petals, this black tea has a distinctive aroma and a lovely intense flower scent.

30. Jasmine Congou – £2.60
