Good Afternoon tea blend: comprises China and Indian teas.

These teas are used to give a light, fragrant afternoon tea blend with a little smokiness. Very moreish, it can be drunk with or without milk. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot. Infuse with freshly boiling water for four minutes.

P G Wodehouse would have approved: "The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy. I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured cosiness."

    5 star tea. Wonderful smokey aroma on opening the tin, which carried through to the pot when brewed. Really enjoyable and distinctive tea blend, but after trying the first infusion at 4 minutes, I now prefer to infuse for just 3 minutes, for a slightly lighter and gentler taste, which is great for an afternoon tea.
    Delivery service prompt as usual.

  13. John (verified owner)

    A very enjoyable tea which we had to wait 10 days for, even though we paid extra for the courier service. No postage refund was offered.
    But at least I gave us a chance to find a nice alternative from another company.
    5 stars for the tea.

  17. Kate Round (verified owner)

    This is a really lovely tea – I usually drink a mix which includes Assam, Ceylon and Darjeeling (or tea grown in England added to the mix). I don’t like lapsang souchong usually. I was going to wait until I’d tried the teas I bought from grey’s for a while before deciding whether to review, but with this one there is no need to wait. Absolutely lovely, delicate, balanced, smokey, distinctive. A real pleasure. Somehow it is the delicate refined note that lingers.

  18. Paul Wilkes

    Product: Smokey but bland taste. I’ve since tried both the English Breakfast Tea and Good Afternoon Tea and I feel I was a bit harsh with my comments. Made with honey they are pleasant teas.Service: Not what I expected. I’ve been trying to find a tea that tastes like it used to – with flavour. Unfortunately, the two teas that I tried from Greys did not really hit the right note.Vendor response: I am sorry that you did not enjoy this tea. Perhaps it was made insufficiently strong. We find this is a popular tea which generally receives good reviews.
