Afternoon Loose Leaf Tea – 500 grams
For our loyal fans of a truly British tea ceremony, this is our Afternoon Loose Tea in 500g – enough to make a cup of tea every morning for the rest of the year! Delivered in a silver catering pack, our Afternoon Tea is a light and exotic blend of hand-plucked Tregothnan leaves and finest imported Darjeeling (our twin). Quintessentially British and delicately refreshing with invigorating citrus notes.
Our Afternoon tea is a blend of Cornish tea leaves and the finest Darjeeling tea leaves. This tea is dairy-free, gluten-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Add your desired amount of loose leaf tea into the metal infuser of the teapot – we recommend a heaped teaspoon for each person and an extra spoonful for the teapot! Place the infuser into the teapot.
Infuse for 2 to 4 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend 3 minutes of infusion time before pouring.
Remove the infuser – the leaves will have expanded to three times their original size. If you would like further cups once the teapot is empty, simply replace the infuser with the same tea leaves and add more water.
If 500 grams is too much, Click here for our Afternoon Loose Leaf Tea Caddy, which gives you 14 servings of tea!
Time for tea
We think these Afternoon Tea pyramids are best savoured around 3pm (with a Cornish cream tea, of course!) – but it is equally as delicious at any time of the day.
How true these words from Henry James are: “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea” – Portrait of a Lady. This tea is dairy-free, gluten-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
