Decaffeinated and Earl Grey Tea now available March 10 2014

We are pleased to announce that Plymouth Tea has recently added a Decaffeinated tea and Earl Grey tea to its existing list of blends. These blends are now available to order through the website in bags of 300.

In-keeping with our existing approach both blends seek to maintain the utmost quality and flavour and provide tea drinkers with a real taste of luxury.

Our decaffeinated tea consists of some of the finest Indian and Kenyan teas to create a luxury decaffeinated blend that we hope will allow everyone to enjoy the taste of quality tea, minus the caffeine. Traditionally decaffeinated tea has a reputation for lacking in flavour, colour and strength which is why we have strived to keep the standard of this blend as high as would be expected from a Plymouth Tea.

The natural decaffeination process that we employ ensures that this tea still maintains its robust, rich and refreshing flavour, meaning that the drinker does not have to compromise on the quality when selecting our decaffeinated tea.

Likewise our new Earl Grey tea is a blend of fine teas which have been treated with natural oils of the Bergamot citrus fruit, which gives the tea a distinctive perfumed aroma and flavour. We are confident we have created one of the finest Earls Grey Teas available.

The story behind Earl Grey tea is an interesting one. Legend has it that the tea was created in the honour of the Prime Minister, Charles Grey (the 2nd Earl Grey) who helped rescue the drowning son of a Chinese mandarin while on a diplomatic mission. The mandarin was so grateful that he presented the Earl with the blend in 1803.

Delicately scented with Oil of Bergamot, you can smell the rich aroma of the tea before you have even opened the package. Our Earl Grey can be taken with or without milk or with a slice of fresh lemon for a refreshing and revitalising drink.

We hope that the addition of these new blends will provide our customers with more choice and will help us to give our trade customers a fuller selection of Plymouth Tea to keep their customers happy.

If you have tried either of our new blends or indeed any of our teas we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to send us your feedback either via the website, email or via our Facebook page.
