Our afternoon teas are served with a selection of eight loose leaf teas or coffee.

Famous Edinburgh: A Ceylon based tea, light, bright and refreshing with a full character, this tea was first blended in the 1930s and is the perfect accompaniment to scones.

Earl Grey: This is a blend of fine China teas delicately scented with Bergamot, a citrus fruit akin to lime.  A refreshing brew with a hint of sharpness.

Peppermint leaf: Fresh high quality peppermint that calms and soothes.

Chamomile: Best quality chamomile flowers produce a pleasant aromatic tea that may be enhanced with a little sugar or honey.

Strawberry and Kiwi: A fruity and aromatic infusion which is naturally caffeine free.

Japanese cherry leaf: The delicate flavour of green tea balances well with the subtle flavour of Japanese Cherry.

Blackcurrant and Blackberry: China black tea flavoured with blackcurrant oil and blackberry leaves.

Passion fruit and Orange leaf: Fruity and refreshing, the passion fruit and orange pieces are blended with fine Keemun China leaf tea.
