Deluxe Extra Fresh Loose Tea is a great tasting black tea for everyday. Rich and smooth, this heritage style loose leaf tea is vacuum packed at the source to keep its sweet and malty flavours as fresh as possible. A Ringtons favourite!
How we like it... with freshly boiled water, infused for 3-5 minutes - at any time of the day, but especially with a Ringtons Sultana Cookie.
A lively and smooth loose tea with natural sweetness and a hint of malt.
Blended using top quality loose teas sourced exclusively from specialist tea gardens in the Assam Valley and the Kenyan Central Highlands. A loose leaf alternative to our Extra Fresh teabags.
Our Extra Fresh Loose blend combines the refreshing, lively teas grown at the Nandi Hills in Kenya, with the sweet maltiness of teas from India’s Assam Valley. All teas included in this blend have been individually selected for their specific flavour qualities. These teas are also 100% vacuum packed at source to preserve these distinct flavours and deliver an exceedingly fresh taste.

This tea has a wonderful aroma, and seems to me (I'm no expert) to be fresh just as advertised. The leaves are small (not tiny/ dust) but I don't think this detracts from the quality. It has a very strong flavour (I had to reduce the amount of tea I used per mug) which I enjoy, although not the caffeine hit I associate with strong tea (I enjoy the caffeine hit but not everyone likes that). However, I find there's also an even stronger aftertaste the likes of which I've never experienced before. I hated it at first, but drinking nothing but this tea at the moment (to use up what wouldn't fit into my metal tin), it's starting to grow on me a little (particularly after reducing the amount of tea added and increasing the amount of milk). I would still say it's "not to my taste", but that doesn't tell anyone else anything. I've been drinking this tea for a few days, so I can't tell you if the aftertaste will continue to grow on me, but that's the only reason for a less than five star rating- it is genuinely good tea.
