£38 per person

For the month a head we have chosen three teas from single estates that will enhance the flavours of your afternoon tea.

Silver Tips - A rarerity among the distinctive white teas. Our Silver Tips are handpicked before sunrise on Brunswick estate, Maskeliya. It takes almost five kilos of hand-picked buds to produce one kilo of this very special tea. There is subtlety woven within the intricacies of this tea, which contains an aromatic scent and a matchless taste that varies with each brew.

  1. St Andrews Tea garden lies in the world famous Dimbula valley. Growing at a high elevation the tea fields are often covered in a swirling mist that lifts as the sun rises. St Andrews is one of a handful of estates in the region that produce large leaf teas. Coupled with the high elevation the brew is a rosy colour and the perfect Afternoon Tea.

Waldemar Roasted Oolong - Grown at 6000ft on Waldemar estate, this Oolong is the perfect autumnal brew. The Deep roasting process produces a rich and autumnal tea with fragrant notes of poached pears with a sweet nutty finish.
