Our very own afternoon blend was specifically designed for Contact the Elderly guests. This well-rounded yet delicate tea, makes the perfect afternoon companion. Best served with a slice of cake.

All profits go to Contact the Elderly

Since 1965, national charity Contact the Elderly has been tackling social isolation and loneliness amongst older people through its monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties. Supported by a network of dedicated volunteer drivers and hosts, the charity supports thousands of people aged 75 and over who live on their own. 

Profits from this blend will enable Contact the Elderly to transform the lives of isolated older people through the simple concept of afternoon tea. Let’s raise a cup of chari-tea to this act of kindness.

Available in whole-leaf tea bag format only. 

The perfect cup:
Use one tea bag per cup. Use freshly drawn boiled water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes according to personal taste.

A big thank you to the four stars of our Darjeeling afternoon tea packaging: Freda, Dilys, Iris and Pat.
Thank you also to photographer Chris Cronin, who kindly donated the shots of these four ladies.
