My go to black tea

The best breakfast tea there is! I can't imagine starting my day without it, I have a huge stash at home at all times. So much better than supermarket teabags

Not a fan of black tea

I am predominantly a green tea drinker. However, a friend who was visiting the U.K. brought me back some bird blend black tea. It was the “great British cuppa”. This was the most delicious black tea I’ve ever had and I ordered a 150 gm container of loose tea immediately! You certainly hit this one out of the ballpark and I have added your black tea to my collection

Wish I'd found it years ago!

I was in Nottingham in February and found the B&B shop.

I bought lots of different teas, and tried them all.



This one is fabolous! The leaves are big enough that I don't get bits falling through the strainer into my cuppa, the tea is a beautiful blend and it's even possible to use the leaves twice :D (I drink a LOT of tea).

Since I visited the shop, I've ordered twice from the website, and both times, the customer service has been brilliant and they even send samples

Breakfast tea

Excellent product,great tea.

Perfect way to start my day

This has become my “go to” morning tea. Although I have been known to drink it at other times of the day too! Its a great blend-smooth, never bitter, and perfect with milk or cream (and a little cinnamon on these autumn days). I tried a sample my family bought me as a gift and was hooked from day one!
Give it a go-you won’t be sorry!

A nice cuppa tea

I buy the great british cuppa for my husband, he’s the real tea drinker. He used to drink earl grey in the afternoon but after tasting the bird & blend cuppa he was hooked. He drinks it without milk and he likes the smooth taste of it.

I am more a coffee drinker, I only drink herbal teas or the sample that was in my package “the spiced pumpkin “ I really liked.

Delivery is fast and in the package is always a surprise I love it, thank you.

You'll struggle to go back to teabags

The perfect loose leaf black tea. You don't know a great cuppa until you've had this loose leaf.

A nice homely tea

A lovely black tea that makes me feel at home

*****

Classic and perfect

A delicious way to start the day.

Pleasant

Pretty good version of an English Breakfast (at least to my novice senses).

Great British Cuppa

Refreshing beverage for any time of the day. Great taste!

A plain black tea well deserving a spot on the B&B tea shelves.

I received a free teabag of this one with my last B&B order. So any black tea blend that B&B sells better stack up to their awesome flavored blends they come up with. It can’t be just a boring black tea! And it isn’t… this is mighty tasty. It’s a mix of Ceylon, Yunnan and Assam. I could probably leave the Ceylon out altogether, but the blend tastes delicious as is. I wish this was the base that Bluebird used in their flavored blends, but then it might distract from the flavors they are going for. This cup resulted in the perfect amount of briskness and strength. (I tend to find their black tea blends have a much weaker tasting base that I could swear is B&B’s only flaw!)...Read more

Makes a great cuppa

I have been buying this tea for a while now and I am a huge fan. It is pretty straightforward, but I challenge you to find a better brew for a traditional tea.

*****

Can’t beat a cupppa

Especially when it’s loose leaf

*****

A brilliant brew

This blend is a really lovely ‘proper’ brew. I always buy the leaves, because I like the ceremony of making tea this way, and the smell when you open the tin is wonderful.

Hands down the best cuppa tea I've had in ages! Would definitely but over top name brands. Well worth a try.

*****

Bloody good cup of tea

Bought the great British cuppa for my boyfriend for xmas to go with the teapot I bought him, so far he has had 3 cups of it and loves it (as quoted in the title :-D )

*****

No Cuppa - no getting up

I wouldn't ever get up in the morning weren't it for a cup that.

*****

Love this

A really delicious every-day kind of a tea. I could drink this all the time.

Lovely, light flavour leaves us wanting more!

I bought the tea for a present for my brother who loves Bird & Blend. He particularly loves the classic "Great British Cuppa" for his morning tea as it has a lovely flavour to set him up for the day.
