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. Once you have tried our Good afternoon tea you will not drink an average tea during the afternoon ever again! 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.”

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.

  • Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea.

How to look after this tea

    Beautiful smokey flavour. Ideal afternoon blend to serve with cakes and scones.

    Dear Mr Rudman, you should have received a message stating that your order had been on hold pending arrival of additional stock. Your tea was posted 1st Class recorded delivery as there is no weekend courier delivery and therefore you would receive your order more quickly. The additional £4.70 courier charge was refunded on 17.11.17.

    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.

    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.
