The best every day tea

This has quickly become my favourite tea. Its the perfect mix of a really good cup of tea and a really great earl grey. I can't get enough of this stuff.


Super house

One of the best tea blends around so tasty!


A good sturdy tea

I noticed some of the tea leaf pellets in this blend - that would be the CTC type that was developed when Britain was trying to industrialize tea and that created the standard strong blend that has become the hallmark of British tea. That strength comes out in the brewed cup, and complements the bergamot nicely. It was interesting to compare to Earl's Paradise, which is built on a lighter tea base....Read more


The earl you've been waiting for

I'm a fan of the strong, malty teas and while I love earl grey, I've not found one that really works for me. New House Blend has everything I've been missing from earl grey - great with or without milk.


The BEST tea ever!

Gorgeous flavoured tea delivered in a reusable tin. Perfect for the cold winter days!


Our Favourite

Love this tea, it’s our staple in our collection and one that can’t be beaten !


New daily favourite

Love, Love, Love


Bergamot faded :(

First cup was amazing but over the course of the month the bergamot flavour has faded. It's still an excellent normal tea though.


Bergamont flavour faded?

This tea was great when I first got it but it's not even been a week yet and the bergamont flavour has completely faded from the it.


From Canada

This blend is soooo good that while drinking my last cup (which I bought while on vacation in England) I got choked up knowing it was the last one I'd enjoy ... but I went online and found out that bird ships to Canada ... I did a happy dance and ordered a huge bag! can't wait, my sundays aren't the same without it. :)


One Earl Grey To Tule Them All

This is one of the teas on top of my personal Earl Grey list, I like the strong base and the lovely smell. The bergamot might have been slightly more prominent, but it's still an excellent tea.


Top Breakfast Tea

I really like this blend, it makes for a good, strong, first of the morning brew


Love the Assam base

This is a nice strong cup of Earl Grey. The bergamot is in good balance with the hearty Assam base. The malt of the Assam makes a nice counterpoint to the floral bergamot.



The tea I have always wanted! I've always tried to brew a stronger earl grey by combining various tea bags and leaves because I like a stronger black tea in the mix, now you guys have done it for me, and it is delish.


Glad I stopped by the stand!

Bought a sample size pouch at the Good Food Show this year, and was amazed by the taste and flavour of this tea! I have 8-10 loose teas for different occasions and time of the day, but I honestly think this is the best one! If you like a strongish black tea with a dash of milk, give this a try!


Top-notch Earl Grey

It is a strong tea with rich but (thankfully) not overwhelming bergamot aroma.
One of the best among more than dozen variations of Earl Grey I've tried.


A favourite!

Got this as a sample and immediately knew I had to buy a bigger refill! The black tea base is amazing: very strong with no bitterness, perfect if you like to drink your tea without milk.


I love New House Blend

I love New House Blend - it's a strong version of Earl Grey, it's perfect! I order it to Belfast as I can't find anything locally to match it.


I'm a big fan of

I'm a big fan of this blend. The different leaves used mesh together really well to just create an excellent cup of tea every time!
