This organic black tea has been infused with minty fresh flavours of peppermint and spearmint to create a bright orange cup of malty and buttery notes, with a refreshing mouthful of mint.

Mama Me
As part of the wellness range, Mama Me infuses a multitude of organic ingredients such as cinnamon, chamomile, nettle, fennel, beetroot, orange peel, blackcurrant and blueberry.

Since the inception of English Tea Shop, we’ve had a laser eye focus on addressing grassroot problems faced by our farmers who source the organic ingredients found in our tea.

In light of this, we are very much looking forward to celebrating and supporting the upcoming Fairtrade Fortnight, which without doubt have given a global voice to farmers.

We’re delighted to announce our rebrand which re-vitalises not only our packaging, but how we communicate and connect with all our customers.

Our new packaging design unites our new brandmark, the Teapot and Mandala to create a powerful and seamless design system that celebrates the individuality of our blends and the strength of our range.
