HIDE & SEEK BREAKFAST

NAGALAND BLACK TEA, HAND ROLLED SINGLE ESTATE

Whats with Hide & Seek then?

Robert Fortune, who was responsible for a fair bit of hide and seek in his time. Disguised as a local, he entered China seeking precious tea seeds and cultivation methods. Hiding them in many ingenious ways he smuggled them out of the country and introduced tea growing to India. So here’s to you Robert – you sneaky rascal!

Our classic breakfast tea contains just one ingredient - premium black tea from the tea fields of Nagaland, India (that’s right next door to Assam for all you tea buffs).  What’s more, every leaf that makes up a cup of Hide & Seek is hand-picked from a single estate to allow for the subtle nuances of varietal, seasonal and regional flavour. Full-bodied, robust and rich, you won’t find a better breakfast brew.

ROYALS & ROGUES EARL GREY

NAGALAND BLACK TEA, HAND ROLLED SINGLE ESTATE

Whats with Royals & Rogues then?

Royal Governor of Boston, Thomas Hutchinson, who found himself in a spot of bother after famously refusing to let a British tea shipment leave the harbour. Things went pear-shaped for Tom when demonstrators against the British Tea Act, disguised as native Americans, boarded the ships and tipped all 46 tonnes of tea into the sea. And so, the biggest brew in history – now aptly known as the Boston Tea Party – marked the start of the American Revolution.

Is there anything more English than a perfectly-steeped cup of Earl Grey served with a slice of lemon? Well, since we make ours with a generous infusion of Italian Bergamot oil and hand-rolled, single estate black tea from the lush tea fields of Nagaland, India, perhaps there is. Nonetheless, this time-honoured blend of premium black tea with a refreshing hint of citrus is a bona fide classic. Enjoy straight from the pot or with a splash of milk and drizzle of honey.

HUSH HUSH MINT & BLACK

NAGALAND BLACK TEA, HAND ROLLED SINGLE ESTATE

Whats with Hush Hush then?

Gentleman bootlegger Bill McCoy, who rose to infamy during the Prohibition for producing the finest whiskey money could buy. Always on the lookout for the next raid, his speakeasy patrons would keep things hush hush by sipping their hooch out of dainty teacups.  These days we prefer our tea moonshine-free, but, just like Bill, our stuff is always the real McCoy!

Our invigorating blend of peppermint leaves and hand-rolled single estate black tea from the tea fields of Nagaland, India, is a newly-minted classic. Full-bodied, robust and rich with a smooth menthol finish, this brew is as fresh as it is flavoursome.

SMUGGLERS SPICE INDIAN SUMMER CHAI

NAGALAND BLACK TEA, HAND ROLLED SINGLE ESTATE

Whats with Smugglers Spice then?

Fiery Irishwoman Anne Bonny and her lover, Calico Captain Jack Rackman, a ferocious couple who belonged to the infamous Pirates of the Caribbean crew.  Together they outwitted the British forces for years, wreaking havoc as they smuggled tea and spices across the West Indies. So bottoms up me hearties – before we make you walk the plank!

Our warm, fragrant summer chai is a heady fusion of healing ginger, punchy black pepper and fragrant green cardamom, balanced with sweetly spicy cinnamon, cloves and star anise. Hand-rolled, single estate black tea from the lush tea fields of Nagaland, India, rounds out the blend to create a deliciously aromatic brew. Spice up your life - without even leaving your sofa.

SINGLE ESTATE SRI LANKAN GREEN TEA

Our Sri Lanka Green is the Rolls Royce of teas. It contains but one ingredient - our Ceylon green tea- all of which comes from a single estate to allow for the subtleties of varietal, seasonal and regional flavour. Grown at high altitude, the tea bushes benefit from heavy mists, cloud and small bursts of sunlight, which only serve to enrich the flavour. The result? A timeless classic of a brew that’s incredibly intense, rich in flavour and mouth watering in its softness.
