The Gift Box
Higgins Afternoon Blend
Higgins Afternoon Blend is a wonderfully rejuvenating tea. A finely balanced blend of Indian, Sri Lankan and Chinese teas, it makes the perfect accompaniment to a slice of cake or sweet treat.
An exquisite fusion of high-quality Darjeeling, Assam and Ceylon Leaves are combined to create a sumptuous black tea with a lively citrus flavour. We add a hint of bergamot to the blend giving a vitalising lift.
Ceylon Orange Pekoe
Ceylon Orange Pekoe is a delicately light, fine-grade tea from the wonderful Gardens of Sri Lanka.
Manufactured by the Falcon tea factory, this estate is progressive in its approach to staff welfare, working under the Ethical Tea Partnership.
This Ceylon Orange Pekoe is the largest leaf orange Pekoe grade. The large leaves slowly releases its bright, zesty, refreshing flavour during infusion.
Higgins Mayfair Blend
Taking its name from our home in the heart of Mayfair, this blend is a true accomplishment and representation of our roots.
This blend is a tribute to our wonderful home and long may we continue to stay there.
We combine the finest grade teas from India, China and Sri Lanka. The large leaf teas combine to give a bright refreshing cup of tea with a smooth background and a strong yet subtly layered flavour.
Named after a famous British prime minister, the 2nd Earl Grey, this tea first appeared in the first half of the 19th century.
The exact provenance of this blend is a matter of great debate. Some believe that the Earl was gifted the tea by a Chinese mandarin. Whereas others argue that the blend was created to suit the water at his stately home. Of course, we will never be certain of its origins, but we, along with the many fans of this blend, are grateful for it finding its way into their home.
To create our version, we use black china tea to create a smooth and subtle base. We combine this with organic bergamot oil from Calabria for that signature citrus flavour.
I am often asked “Mr Higgins, which is your favourite coffee?”
That question takes me all the way back to when I first Joined the company. Then I was the most junior member of staff. Though I had worked in the business before leaving school and for as long as I could remember, I was the new boy, a trainee.
