A light and exotic blend of homegrown hand-plucked leaves from our Cornish estate with the finest Darjeeling tea leaves from the gardens of India. This tea is dairy-free, gluten-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Use filtered or bottled water just off the boil. Brew for 2 to 4 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend 3 minutes of steeping time before tasting. Afternoon Tea can easily be overwhelmed by milk. If you are not used to drinking your tea ‘black’, do try it – you will be surprised by the difference.
If you prefer loose Afternoon Tea leaves try our matching loose leaf tea caddy box.
Time for tea
We think our Afternoon Tea is best savoured around 3 pm (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.
