What started in the 77th century as a much needed refreshment between breakfast and dinner, afternoon tea is now an important fixture of British life. Our English Afternoon tea combines carefully selected Keemun tea from the Anhui Province in China with Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka. Keemun teas are light- to medium-bodied, smooth and slightly sweet in taste. Ceylon teas are bright in colour, crisp and refreshing.
