Day 2 Chocolate Digestives Tea
The Chocolate Digestive… arguably on top of the biscuit pyramid, we thought it was about time it had its own tea blend. A velvety smooth, caramel & chocolate delight, best enjoyed whilst dunkin’ the real thing.

Day 5 Pina Colada Tea
Everyone thinks their grandad is a bit of a retro legend but my grandad Ted is a true classic. He loves cruising around the world visiting tropical climates so this tea is perfect for him. With coconut, pineapple and lots of pretty flower petals, it's Hawaii in a cup.

This brew is one of our absolute best sellers for a reason! It is delicate enough to enjoy without milk (or with a slice of lemon should you wish!) and flavourful enough to enjoy with a splash of milk.
