Our Anniversary Blend Tea

Despite H.R. Higgins starting out life as a wholesale coffee merchants, Harold Higgins quickly recognised the exquisite qualities of tea. He soon became infatuated with the tea growing and processing business, and the enormous variety of flavours afforded by origin, cultivation methods and manufacturing. He also noted the idiosyncrasies in the tea making rituals of individuals, which are prevalent perhaps even more so today. For example, many have differing opinions on how to take tea – with lemon, with milk in first or milk in second. It’s a highly controversial topic!

To celebrate the 75th year of the H.R. Higgins shop, the 40th year of holding the Royal Warrant, the extraordinary man who established our business, and all of our individual speciality tea drinking idiosyncrasies, we would like to introduce Anniversary Tea.

This wonderful celebration blend is perfect for accompanying breakfast, or indeed any occasion that requires an extra special something for discerning guests.

Teas from Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon and Keemun (Black China) have been blended to create a masterful and refreshing cup. Each tea can be regarded as a solo musical instrument – with its own distinctive qualities, and mesmerising when played alone. When H.R. Higgins creates a blend, these instruments come together in just the right quantities, producing the effect of a full orchestra.

Marking the last 75 years, this exceptional blend lends a floral top note and aroma, a rich full body, and a hint of malt at the finish. It can be drunk black or with milk, and is best infused for 3 minutes at 100C.

Anniversary Blend is now available to buy here.


Chinese Teas to ring in the Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year is fast approaching and we're entering the Year of the Dragon. This festival lasts more than just one night and much longer than simply gathering to wait for the clock to chime twelve and the fireworks to start. Whether you're celebrating or not, Chinese teas are always worth exploring.


Our philosophy on choosing our coffee range

My grandfather had a vision. Back in the 1930s when he was working as a manager at the Kenya Coffee Company coffee was not seen as a speciality at all. He wanted to start his own business and in his diary he wrote:


The Art of Fresh Coffee: Why Beans is the Best Choice and the Importance of Roasting Date

There's something undeniably captivating about the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.

In this blog post, we'll explore why fresh coffee reigns supreme over its counterparts and why the roasting date takes precedence over the best-before date on all of our H.R.Higgins coffee bags.
