India is one of the largest tea producers in the world, although over 70 percent of its tea is consumed within India itself. A number of renowned teas, such as Assam and Darjeeling, also grow exclusively in India. Tea was first brought to Britain in the early 17th century by the East India Company.
It was Catherine of Braganza, wife of Charles II who introduced the ritual of drinking teas to the English Royal Court and the habit adopted by the aristocracy.
Assam (Royal Breakfast) | £2.5
A black tea named after the region of its production in India. It is grown at sea level, which adds to its trademark body, briskness, malty flavour, and strong, bright colour. It is commonly consumed at the start of the day, which is why it is also known as English Breakfast. We brew our Assam tea for exactly 2 minutes and provide it with milk or lemon, according to your tastes.
Masala | £2.6
One of the most popular teas in India, especially during colder weather and monsoon season. Based on the Chaii family recipe, we use a unique combination of spices, simmered with carefully selected tea leaves and milk. A traditional favourite that transports you to another time and place.
Green Tea | £2.5
Tea made from Camellia sinensis leaves and buds that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make black teas. It is one of the less processed types of tea and is therefore packed with antioxidants and beneficial polyphenols.
