Quintessential T


Start your day off right with a rich, strong cup of Quintessential T. A blend of broken Kenyan and Assam tea leaves gives it a deep, dark red infusion and a robust flavour that's perfect for tea lovers who like a bold cup.

As the saying goes, life is like a cup of tea - and with Quintessential T, you can make it a great one.

Allow 1 teaspoon per 200ml cup and add one for the pot. Leave to infuse for 3-5 minutes. Enjoy!

Tea Origin: Tinderet Tea Garden, Nandi County Kenya and Cherideo Purbat estate, Assam, India

How to make a good cuppa:

  1. If you would like to be very fancy use filtered water - better water = better tea. If you are using tap water let it run for a bit to aerate - tea loves oxygen, it helps to develop the flavour. (You should only boil your kettle once as each time you boil it you decrease the oxygen level)
  2. Once your kettle has boiled leave it for a minute to cool down.
  3. Warm up your teapot - pour some water into your teapot and gently swirl it around to warm it up. Throw away the water once done.
  4. Put your tea in the pot, add hot water. Allow 1 teaspoon per 200ml cup and add one for the pot. Cover the pot and let it steep for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Using a strainer, pour your tea into your cup, add milk and sugar if you wish and enjoy!

Tip: If your tea tastes bitter it is because when left in water too long tannins are released from the tea leaves, or the water was too hot.
