Top 10 Teas

Here is the countdown of our Top 10 Teas as sold by weight over the last six months. There’s something for everyone here, but the outright the winner has pleasantly surprised us!

10 – GREEN SENCHA SAKURA

Sencha Sakura is one of Japan’s most popular teas, and also Barnet’s. Historically enjoyed by Aristocrats, Townspeople, and Samurai alike. The taste of spring is captured in this gentle, refined blend of premium sencha green tea and cherry blossoms. Just the right amount of cherry and rose petals have been added to give this tea a sublime complexity of sweetness and astringency. A fantastic tasting tea that boosts your metabolism – this is a must for every standard green tea assortment.

9 – GINGER & PEACH FRUIT TEA

The fruity characteristic peach flavour is equal in intensity to the strong ginger spice flavour. A balanced combination of tastes, which unites the soft sweetness of the peach with the dominant spiciness of the ginger, fused with hibiscus, rosehip, and melon. Sweet and soft air-dried apple pieces are taken as the basis for this well-thought fruit tea blend. Thanks to gingers high vitamin C content, this blend is the perfect antidote to the common cold. Your immune system will thank you.

8 – GUNPOWDER GREEN TEA

From the Anhui province in Eastern China, this tea is rich in polyphenols – strong antioxidants that fight heart disease, arthritis, and immune system issues. It also has a higher caffeine content than other green teas. Making it a favourite among athletes for boosting performance. It has a greenish dry golden liquor much appreciated throughout the Middle East with a light smoke and nutty character.

7 – LEMON & GINGER FRUIT TEA

A perfectly balanced aromatic blend of lemon and ginger, produces a refreshing and caffeine free liquor. This is a lively lemon tea, with a subtle hint of fennel and a warming ginger kick at the end. The refreshing infusion has a delicate pinkie peach colour. Again the ginger in this tea is high in Vitamin C – the ultimate form of prevention against the common cold.

6 – CHINA OP JASMINE TEA

Practically the national drink of China Green tea, and the perfect stress reliever. A blend of ripened green tea and fresh jasmine blossoms which are added during drying time and later are partially removed. This sweet blend still has quite a lot of blossoms, which leave an intense, flowery jasmine taste and scent.

5 – WINTER COCOA HERB TEA

Drinkable all year round. This highland grown chocolate, in combination with select spices, makes this a true indulgence. The carefully combined ingredients include; pure cocoa pieces, ginger pieces, pieces of cinnamon, cloves, star aniseed, cinnamon rods, sliced almonds, whole cardamom and safflower. The plentiful flavonoid in cocoa beans not only lowers the blood pressure, but improves the elasticity of veins and blood vessels.

Earl Grey with Cornflowers

4 – EARL GREY WITH CORNFLOWERS

An eye-catching blend of the finest Keemun, Darjeeling, Ceylon and Assam scented with the delicate aroma of the Bergamot fruit. The leaf is large and well blended, giving a light and bright liquor with a beautifully fragrant liquor. Not only does the blue flower look spectacular but it prevents congestion, synergising perfectly with Earl Grey’s ability to enhance digestion.

Assam CTC Pekoe Fannings

3 – ASSAM CTC PEKOE FANNINGS​

The tea growing area of Assam, which extends along both sides of the Brahmaputra River in Northern India, is one of the largest tea growing areas in the world. This tea is rich, strong, fragrant, pungent and malty, a real lip-smacker. This tea has a natural balance of caffeine for mental stimulation and Theanine that relaxes the body, preventing jitteriness that some experience with coffee.

English Breakfast Blend 28

2 – ENGLISH BREAKFAST N0. 28

A true classic. Blended from the finest Assam and Ceylon teas by expert blenders. This orthodox blend has a mid-sized even leaf giving a traditional malty flavour with good strength. The drink also contains vitamin B, which helps the body create red blood cells, a key part of excellent health.

1 – BATTLE OF BARNET BLEND

By far our most popular tea – Barnet’s own Gunpowder Pinhead & Rose Tea Blend. The Battle of Barnet took place on April 14th 1471 and was part of the Wars of the Roses, where gunpowder was used for the first time in England. Three Kings and over 25,000 soldiers massed around Barnet the night before battle. This tea is a colourful explosion of flavours to celebrate King Edward IV’s victory.
