Once you convert to loose tea we promise you will never go back!
See below for a brief description of the Eteaket tea we stock:
Ingredients: Ceylon black tea, Assam Indian black tea
Breakfast Blend black tea is an inspiring and invigorating blend of hand picked Ceylon and Assam black teas. This is our ‘regular cuppa’ although there is nothing regular about this tea, it is wonderfully robust and malty with a gentle smoky edge and a hint of oak.
Royal Earl Grey
Ingredients: Ceylon black tea, natural bergamot flavour, cornflowers
Royal Earl Grey tea stands head and shoulders above its regular Earl Grey subjects. It is built on a base of exceptional whole leaf Ceylon tea which is scented with natural Bergamot Oil (extracted from the rind of the Bergamot orange) and embellished with cornflowers to create a truly regal Royal Earl Grey.
Ingredients: Black tea, cloves, anise, cassia bits, black pepper, ginger bits, cardamon, natural flavouring of cinnamon, chicory roots.
Bollywood Dreams Chai is intense and spicy and will take your senses on a journey to the heart of Bengal. The intensity of our Bollywood Dreams Chai is created by carefully blending a unique selection of spices.
Second Flush Darjeeling
Ingredients: 100% Indian Darjeeling Black Tea
Second Flush Darjeeling is the the most sophisticated and suave of all our teas! Known as the champagne of teas, this ‘vintage’ has a clean smooth, floral flavour with a hint of refreshing fruitiness.
Traditionally, Second Flush Darjeeling is an afternoon tea but it can be enjoyed anytime of the day.
Ingredients: 100% Japanese ceremonial matcha tea
Matcha green tea is reported to be high in antioxidants, rich in fibre magnesium and vitamin C. The plant used to produce this ceremonial grade matcha is shade grown. This results in a higher presence of chlorophyll, which is of course considered to be a powerful detoxifier.
A scoop of Matcha powder whisked with hot water releases a fresh, grassy aroma. As a result, it translates to a light grassy taste with a sharp but slightly sweet finish.
Orange Oolong Supreme
Ingredients: Chinese oolong tea, orange petals
Orange Oolong Supreme is a traditional Chinese tea which is made by unique processes to create a semi oxidised tea sitting between a black and green tea. The hand-rolled leaves create a mix of sweetness & tangy-ness, with a warming orange finish.
Lemon & Ginger
Ingredients: Ginger, lemongrass, liquorice root, peppermint leaves, lemon peel, orange peel, rose petals.
Fragrant lemongrass is expertly blended with lemon peel, ginger peel and just a hint of liquorice. Fabulous as a cold buster in winter but makes a truly remarkable iced tea in the summer!
Ingredients: Peppermint leaves
Perfect Peppermint infusion is cool and invigorating. Peppermint tea helps to cleanse your palate and aid digestion and is perfect for those with a caffeine intolerance
Sea Buckthorn Tea
Ingredients: Sea buckthorn, dried apple pieces, hibiscus blossom, elderberries, cranberries (cranberries, sugar, anti-cracking agent: sunflower oil), rose hip peel, natural flavourings
Sea Buckthorn Tea is made from the wild plant found in abundance along Scottish coastlines. This wee berry is greatly overlooked as it contains an array of vitamins and minerals as well as bio-active substances.
