The Language of the Leaves

At English Tea Shop we believe that drinking tea should be a multi-sensory experience. Tea is an important part of many people’s lives. But how many of us really know anything about the tea that we drink? We take the time to choose the wine, or aged whiskey that we are drinking. We note the taste, the smell, the fragrance…


So why should tea be an exception?


Here at English Tea Shop, we want to introduce you to a new tea-drinking experience. We wanted to create a system that tells the story behind the blends and its ingredients, stimulating the senses. A system that allows tea to become a multi-sensory experience, not just a ‘quick cuppa’.

After all, you don’t need to be a connoisseur to choose the best tea for your needs. Which is why we designed the Quadrant System.


Our quadrant is packed with expert knowledge from our master blender and farmers, to guide consumers and partners on their tea drinking journey, with all the information needed to choose the perfect tea blend for them.


Whilst working on developing the quadrant, we wanted to make sure that the complexities of the blending process are presented, explained and visualised in a clear and engaging way – exploring the profiles of each individual blend.

The Quadrant system consists of three categories of blend: Core, Wellness and Super, each one designed to cater for different occasions and moods.


One of our favourite core blends is the ‘Super Berries’ blend. It is an organic, caffeine free combination of hibiscus and rooibos. With flavours of raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and spearmint, this is a fruity and vibrant tea.


As shown by the quadrant, the tea is full body and packed with flavour. Making this blend perfect served over ice with a few fresh raspberries.

At the English Tea Shop, our aim is to use this system to engage with our customers from all over the world, so they get most out of their tea-drinking experience.

We want you to feel passionate about the blends that you drink.

We want to equip you with the knowledge to consider the characteristics of each blend.

And most importantly, we want you to enjoy the unique sensory experience of the English Tea Shop blends.
