The Basilur blends recognised at the event
Basilur English Breakfast is one of our best-sellers both at home and abroad. It is a staple in any tea collection with flavourful, brisk, and malty profile. We make this classic blend with pure Ceylon black tea plucked from the high regions such as Dimbula and Nuwaraeliya where the weather conditions create the perfect environment to grow tea that brings rich flavours that English Breakfast requires.
English Breakfast tea with a dash of milk and sugar is the perfect companion for your breakfast. This will also let you experience a lavish English meal from the wonderful Victorian era. Apart from the award-winning tea bags, this product is also available in 100g loose leaf tin caddies. Click here to shop.
Earl Grey is a favourite among tea connoisseurs around the world. The light flavour notes comparative to its big sister English Breakfast tea, makes this blend a delightful afternoon tea. The Basilur Earl Grey blend is made with tea from lower regions such as Rathnapura which carry lighter flavour profiles. These subtle flavors together with the citrus flavours of Bergamot oil makes a delectable cup of tea. This complex flavour profile also means that it does not necessarily require an extra dairy element. You have the choice of enjoying this product as tea bags or in 100g loose leaf tin caddies.

This is a blend infused with the familiar Autumn flavours of Maple with the finest Ceylon black tea to bring you a smooth, silky taste with a calming aroma. As the leaves turn into earthy colours of red and yellow, the cool breeze that surrounds us, cheers to the special blend of Autumn in a cup.
