Tea | £4
Earl Grey is one of the most widely drunk teas in the world. Its distinct flavour is a result of combining high quality Chinese black tea and oil of bergamot, originally used to protect the flavour from mould and tar during long sea voyages. This beautifully scented tea with its flowery and citrusy flavour remains the embodiment of the finest English tea.
Camellia’s Welcome Tea
Camellia’s Welcome Tea is an uplifting and refreshing blend of delicate white tea leaves, luscious apricot pieces and fine jasmine tea which combine wonderfully to produce a delicate tea that will awaken all your senses. This subtly sweet and refreshing tea is filled with all the healthy anti-oxidant goodness that only white and green tea can offer. This unique house blend is not only a marvel for the senses with its fruity aroma, but also visually beautiful with elegant yellow rose buds, pretty cornflowers and exotic mullein flowers.
This is a delicious refreshing tea with a kick! Japanese Sencha green tea is combined with lemon peel and lemongrass to produce a wonderfully zesty green tea, which makes this a must for any green tea enthusiast.
The perfect tea for chocoholics... the flavour of chocolate without all the calories! A mix of Chinese and Ceylon black tea blended with dried cocoa and chocolate chips producing a wonderfully traditional black tea flavour with a hint of chocolate undertones. Each cup of chocolate tea has circa 30 calories so it’s a healthy “chocolate” choice.
A playful and radiant blend of whole rose buds with elements of ginger and soft liquorice that create a wonderful herbal infusion leaving a warming and floral sweetness in your mouth. The rose buds provide a youthful sweetness to the soft liquor of the cup, which dance above the warmth of the ginger, whilst allowing the spiciness of the liquorice to linger in the palate. This bright amber infusion will awaken your senses and rejuvenate the body!
Very Berry Tea
This is a truly delicious and refreshing fruit infusion, which contains a variety of dried berries, which combine to develop a deep red infusion with a sweet and fruity aroma and taste - a must for all berry lovers! It can also be served as a delicious iced tea.
Sleep Well Tea (GOLD Taste award winning tea)
This is a delightful, soothing herbal infusion created using herbs believed to ease insomnia and promote a restful night’s sleep in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
