The Perfect Afternoon Tea: The Tea

lemon tea

The most important part of the afternoon tea is, after all, the tea. It’s the glue that holds it all together (and washes it all down) – the perfect tea needs to work well with your sweet and savoury selection, without overwhelming the delicate flavours of your sponge or cucumber sandwiches.

If you want to make sure all of your tea partiers have the perfect drink, it’s a good idea to offer a few options. You could even make some iced tea for arrival drinks and then offer earl grey, black tea, peppermint, or even lemon verbena tea when everybody’s ready to eat.

Classic Choices

Black tea is what people tend to expect with an afternoon tea. Our black tea is an English Breakfast style blend with a rich but crisp flavour.

If you refer a dash of bergamot in your tea, we have an earl grey blend too. It’s entirely up to you!

Iced Tea

On a hot day, iced tea can really hit the spot. You can turn any of our blends into the perfect iced by brewing 4 teabags with 4 cups of water. All you need to do is stir 1 cup of water into 4 cups of cold water and then combine the two mixtures. Let it cool further and serve with ice.

With a Twist

Sometimes you want a little extra for your afternoon tea. Lemon tea is extremely refreshing (and has the added benefit of being good for you) while peppermint tea has a lovely aftertaste and helps with digestion. If you’d prefer to stick to black tea, you can add lemon instead of milk, or even raspberries to add another layer of flavour to your brew.
