From The London Cuppa

As with some other major World cities, we Londoners live in a bustling and multi-cultural society, swept along with the increasing pace of our exciting city. Tea remains a universal part of our daily lives, with more tea being drunk in London than in any other city in the World.

We have decided it’s time we had our own special tea, which can also be enjoyed by lovers of good tea everywhere.

We’ve searched for the highest quality leaves and chosen a blend from Kenya and Assam; these have been blended to give a robust, deep, rich flavour which is ideal to enjoy all day, every day.

Once blended it is packed in high quality materials to maintain freshness and delivered to you so you can partake of this key part of London life – wherever you are.

For a Great Cuppa!
Pour fresh boiling water onto a London Cuppa teabag in the cup, allow the cuppa to stand for 2-3 minutes which will reveal the true flavour of the cuppa. Alternatively, if you are making a brew using a teapot allow one tea bag per cuppa, allow pot to stand for 3-4 minutes, gently stir before pouring the brew.

I love this one—I ALWAYS keep this on hand, and often start the morning with it.

I tried this tea when I visited my mom over the holidays. While I can’t say it was super-special or unique, I can say it was a good strong everyday tea- which was exactly what I needed at the time. I swiped several of the bags to bring back with me and I will probably buy a box when my current stash runs out.

This tea smells strong, like a breakfast tea. I’m sure it would have been perfect this morning. I’ve had so much caffeine already today that I’m not sure how it will settle with me this afternoon. I’m hoping it’s enough to warm me up but not so much that it makes me feel jittery and off balance. After adding a little cream, the color is a deep reddish brown. The cream doesn’t completely mix here but it does well enough. To me, this isn’t as good as I remember it being before. It’s astringent and a little bitter in the aftertaste. I’ll probably drop my rating on this one.

Just not as strong as I like it. I bought a big box of this on sale at British Delights and then gave it to my mom who doesn’t take milk with her tea. She loved it.

I got this tea from my mom who got it from a student of hers whose mother lives in Britain… It continues to be one of my absolute favorites. Smooth and delicious with a bit of milk and honey. I have it in both loose and teabag forms, and they are equally delicious.

Well, I want to begin by saying that I am of Indian origin and have been around tea my entire life- never really a fan though. Recently I discovered some sleep issues of mine were related to the caffiene in coffee and instantly I switched to tea. On a whim I picked up this tea from the Home Goods store and brought it back to the office. I was a bit excited because I had never had Assam tea blended with Kenya tea and wanted to see what it would taste like. Let me tell you- the simplicity of the tea is what makes it amazing. It’s not overly brisk,overly dark, or even bitter. It’s great for a beginner tea aficianado. I put two table spoons of half and half because I wanted a creamy texture and added some splenda as well. This is a great tea to have as a go-to. You can never over-steep and you will always get good flavor. I highly recommend this blend.

Brews far too strong even when you leave it for just 2-3 minutes. Milk helps in this case, of course, but unless that’s your goal / preferred way of taking your tea, it’s rather bland and uninteresting (I prefer Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Gold if I’m basically making builders’ tea).
