Diamond Jubilee tea blend: To commemorate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne in 2012.

In 2012 we created this special Diamond Jubilee tea blend. It is an elegant tea containing large leaf Darjeeling with a little China Keemun to create a bright, light and well balanced tea with plenty of flavour. It combines well the muscatel and burgundy characters of both. Best enjoyed without milk. Brew for four minutes.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

  • This is a carefully sourced tea chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour.
  • Loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse.
  • The tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known.
  • A little patience is required when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup.

    I had originally ordered by mistake as was actually looking for Twinings “The Queens Diamond Jubilee” tea which I had back in 2012, loved it and couldn’t source it any more.. but no regrets although I don’t believe the blends are at all similar this is every bit as good, probably better, it’s a really rounded, warming brew with some depth of flavour, expensive, but absolutely worth it, after enjoying my previous bulk order for 2 years, have just ordered some more. 5 stars.

    Service: Prompt and sufficient order processing

    Lovely complex tea bright and lively like a Darjeeling with hints of China and no smokiness
    A favourite

    Product: Delicious combination of teas that is difficult to find.
    Service: Efficient service, good advice on the phone.
    I bought the tea for a friend who was looking for a combination of Darjeeling and China tea. This was ideal but unfortunately the packaging doesn’t say which teas were used so I had to add a note of my own to explain the contents. This spoiled the attractiveness of the package.
    She loves the tea and will take it back to France with her.
