Husband's absolute favourite blend

The husband is a self confessed tea snob and he can't get enough of this blend. He loves the big leaves and the lack of dust, even at the bottom of the bag. He says its the perfect combination.


Relieved in lockdown

Don’t give me all the fancy stuff but the great British cuppa is a cracker, relieved I could order on line posting etc was very efficient. The missus goes for earl greys which she swears by but don’t get me started on that perfume! Recommend a little tea strainer that fits directly on the cup, as quick as using a tea bag, no messing about with a tea pot, save that if you ever need to impress.


Great blend

I bought the British breakfast tea which is a really nice blend of Assam, Ceylon and yunnan.



This tea is for those of us who like a traditional cuppa. It has a comforting rich, fresh flavour, no bitterness. I love the large leaves and the fact that there is never any dust in the bottom of the cup. I believe this indicates the use of the best leaves, whereas tea bags that leave crumbs and dust when you finish your drink are made from the sweepings of the tea shed.


My New Favorite Breakfast Blend

I always reach for my favorite Scottish Breakfast tea in the morning, but then I discovered the Great British Cuppa! This is such a great breakfast blend. It offers a smooth but robust flavor that I love the wake up with.


proper brew

This does what it says on the tin literally - a great british cuppa. Great for breakfast when you want something tasty and strong to set you up for the rest of the day. Not my favourite blend but when you want a nice cup of tea its still miles better than the ones you get in the supermarket.


A daily treat in these hard times

I have been a drinker of the bird and blend English breakfast tea for a couple of years, and would never go back to branded tea. I was at a loose end when my supply was running out, and feared for the worst knowing the shop was closed as result of covid19 restrictions. Fortunately my husband had the foresight to order online. So when my refill duly arrived, I knew I could carry on with my daily indulgence in these hard times....Read more


Amazing Taste!

A delicious full bodied brew with a great everyday palate. Love the blend, it's perfect!


Perfect for ice tea and bubble tea!

I bought this tea as a base for my homemade bubble tea and it was amazing! The taste is perfect. Not too strong, not too light. Also I tried to make a homemade ice tea and it was so delicious too. Add a bit of


Lovely morning brew

Everything you want from a simple black tea.


A classic

The classic breakfast tea you know & love, blended very nicely.



I have had this tea at a lovely local tea room. I decided to buy this as a treat under lockdown, but I will now buy this regularly. It is fruity and totally delicious.


Award winning for a reason

Perfect morning tea.


Certainly a Great cuppa!

What better way to start the day than a Great cuppa!



Great tea , great taste!


Tea to be proud of!

Bought for my husband who likes a strong cuppa and this fits the bill. Lovely strong cup of ‘traditional’ tea, good colour and doesn’t leave a heavy tannin taste that some strong blends do. Reviving and tasty!


My morning cuppa just got upgraded

This blend is the best I have tasted in a long long long time. I've been on the hunt for that illusive great morning cuppa, and I have finally found it. My morning has been upgraded to stellar. Thank you Team Bird & Blend!


Fresh and fabulous!

A really tasty brew! Fresh and tasty. We've just got into loose leaf tea and tried a few samples but this is our favourite by far!


All-Day-Breakfast (Tea)

This is my favorite breakfast tea! It’s bright and robust, great with milk and sugar or plain. This tea is the real deal at a great price. I’ve been searching for an every-day tea like this for a long while!


Delicious everyday tea

Tea you get from the supermarket can't compete with this bad boy. The freshness comes through and the flavour is gorgeous. Although I love this tea I tend to drink Monkey Chop's over this which uses the same tea leaf but has a delicious banana taste.
