Careys Manor Signature Black Tea
The Carey’s Manor Signature Black Tea Blend is a wonderfully balanced and full-bodied tea which has been created using our finest English breakfast blend and Darjeeling Goomtee. This blend of premium black teas, together with the distinctive muscatel character of the Darjeeling Goomtee, creates a bold infusion with a reddish-brown cup and a pleasant finish characterised by the flowery and subtly spicy undertones.
This Sri Lankan tea estate was created in 1947 by an English pioneer who named it after the famous Kenilworth castle in Warwickshire, England. This particular estate produces one of the highest quality teas in Sri Lanka with beautiful black leaves. The full-bodied infusion is a dark-red with an earthy, spicy flavour.
Goomtee is ranked among the top gardens in the Darjeeling district, India and produces luscious green leaves with hues ranging from oaky-brown to light green. This tea offers a deliciously smooth and refreshing cup with distinctive muscatel character.
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.
The unmistakable flavour of chocolate without all the calories! A medium bodied blend of Chinese and Ceylon black teas that has been combined with chocolate chips and coconut to produce a wonderfully light black tea with a strong aroma and undertones of chocolate.

This is a truly delightful fusion tea, which merges the lightness of white tea with the sweetness of luscious apricots and the zing of orange peels. The golden cup also offers hints of spiciness from ginger and cinnamon, and a lingering finish of liquorice. The floral undertones of marigold, mullein flowers and yellow rose buds add to the complexity of this blend, creating a wonderfully fragrant and revitalising tea.
