The silken pyramid range has won numerous taste awards the English Breakfast and Peppermint in particular. The Newby secret is simply sourcing fine ethical leaves in prime season and blending and preserving them to deliver full flavour first and second flush teas.

It’s a process that has earned them over 28 taste awards across north America.

This might be a perfect Christmas gift option, (there are also exclusive 100g gourmet tea caddies available)  or an opportunity to try and perfect that hotel afternoon tea experience. Either way, just follow the instructions on each bag and you’re bound to replicate an authentic fine tea flavour in the comfort of your own lounge.
