Blending teas is an art form. It’s not just about throwing ingredients together, but requires years of experience, and a great deal of knowledge about the properties of the ingredients used. While one of our aims is to source single estate teas, some blended teas are just too good to miss out on.
An example of a relatively simple blend would be English Breakfast blend, and yet great thought is put into its construction. For example, one of the key characteristics of English Breakfast is its rich, malty flavour and fast brewing time. By using black tea with two different yet complementing flavours we can achieve this.
Because the flavours can be balanced out, the blending process can help in creating a consistent flavour profile for the tea. This level of consistency means that we can provide you with excellent quality each and every time you try a cup of our tea.
