Speciality teas

Speciality teas are the ideal way for caterers to offer a range of teas to their customers. You can purchase a wide range of Speciality teas like Twinings Speciality Teas and also a fantastic range of Fairtrade Speciality Teas and also a wide range of Herbal Infusions.


Speciality Teas

These are blends that can come from more than one country or region and popular on the UK speciality tea market. You may be the kind of person who blends their own tea or has had an unusual tea somewhere in the world, if you are we want to hear from you, click here to tell us about it.

English Breakfast

Traditionally a blend of Assam and Ceylon teas to create a pungent and flavoursome tea to help digest a full english breakfast and give a good brisk start to the day. The essence of early morning tea, or as the Indians call it "bed" tea, is its strength and ability to wake and stimulate the metabolism. Many English Breakfast blends also include tea from Africa to give a coppery brightness to the colour.

Afternoon Tea

A blend of delicate Darjeeling tea and high-grown Ceylon tea to produce a refreshing and light tea, Afternoon Tea also makes an ideal companion to cucumber sandwiches, cream pastries and fruit cake. The essence of Afternoon Tea blends is not their strength but their flavour.

House Blend

Some tea places offer a 'pot of tea', others have a 'pot of house blend tea'. This tea is equivalent to - if not better than - the type of tea most people buy to use at home. In tea trade language, it is known as a 'popular brand leading blend' . In catering terms it will be a Quality Award tea. It may be a loose leaf or tea bag, either way it's a work of art and can contain 15-35 different teas. These are blended to achieve a consistent quality flavour.

During the year or plucking season, adverse weather conditions can affect the quality of any of the teas. The blender will then have to find other teas that will produce the same flavour and characteristics. To do this they will taste between 200 and 1,000 teas a day and adjust the recipe so we can enjoy our favourite cup of tea all day, everyday.

Flavoured Teas

These are real teas (Camellia sinensis), blended with fruit, spices or herbs. Fruit flavoured tea such as apple or blackcurrant, is real tea blended with fruit peel or treated with the natural fruit juice or oil known as zest. Spiced and herb teas, such as cinnamon, nutmeg or mint, are also real teas blended with spice or herb. Tisanes such as Camomile, Peppermint or Nettle, or the misnamed "fruit teas", do not contain one leaf of real tea.

Bubble Tea

One of the latest emerging trends in the tea market is bubble tea. This drink originated in Taiwan over 10 years ago and is also known as Tapioca Tea, Pearl Tea, Milk Tea, Booboo, Hen Zhu NIA Cha and variations on these names. The two main ingredients of this cold beverage are tapioca balls and milk tea. Several varieties exist and can include exotic fruit flavourings such as Papaya, Honeydew and Taro as well as ice cream, but the "bubble" comes from the round, gummy tapioca balls that are boiled in the tea flavourings. Kids in Taiwan call these balls "QQ" which means 'chewy' in Chinese, in the West they are, the popular term is "booboo" which is slang for female breasts.

In the past few years, Bubble Tea has become increasingly fashionable in areas such as New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver and the Bay area where it is drunk with large colourful straws.

Chai

'Chai', (pronounced as a single syllable and rhymes with 'pie') is the word for tea in many parts of the world. It is a centuries-old beverage that has played an important role in many cultures. Chai, from India is basically spiced milky tea and is becoming increasingly popular all over the world. In the United States Chai has caught on and is being sold as, 'Tea Latte' a popular alternative to its coffee namesake. It is generally made up of rich black tea, heavy milk, a combination of spices and some form of sweetener. In traditional Indian recipes the spices vary from region to region but the most common are, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pepper.

Iced Tea

Iced Tea was first drunk at the 1904 World Trade Fair in St Louis where the extremely hot weather and demand for cold drinks led Englishman, Richard Blechynden to pour tea into glasses filled with ice cubes.

More than 80 % of all the tea consumed in the US is served as iced tea. So, already a very popular beverage oversees, it is now becoming more popular in the UK. Iced Tea in Europe is one of the fastest growing soft drinks segments, with consumption tripling over the last ten years. To brew iced tea either Ceylon or China Keemun will show the best results.

For any business that sells hot beverages to the public, a reliable and fast supply of coffee beans, ground coffee, tea bags, hot chocolate powder and all the little accessories that a busy cafe needs is essential. Fortunately finding the right supplier is not that hard. The key to finding the right coffee supplier, is finding one that provides you a range of products - purchasing from a range of suppliers complicates the order process and increases the risk of running out of stock. A good coffee supplier will stock all the products you need to make and  serve all your hot beverage line up, so an ideal supplier not only offers coffee beans, ground coffee but also sugar sachets, disposable cups to serve drinks in, coffee machines and cleaning products.

If you enjoy the taste of fresh ground, home made coffee there is certain equipment that you will need to make this well. One of the key parts of the home coffee makers equipment is the espresso grinder and this is basically used to reduce coffee beans to the grounds that are used in an espresso machine.

There are a couple of advantages to owning an espresso coffee grinder. Firstly it can be more cost effective than buying pre-packed grounds and although you have the initial outlay of buying the espresso coffee nmachine this should be paid back in time with the cost saving from grinding your own beans. The second advantage is freshness. Generally it is agreed that the sooner after grinding espresso beans that you brew the coffee, the better the coffee will taste. Pre-packed coffee beans can sit on the shelf for a long time before use and therefore the best way to ensure the freshness and quality of the grounds you use is to make your own with an espresso coffee grinder.

If you are considering purchasing an espresso grinder there are a couple of types available on the market. These comprise grinders with a blade and those with a burr. The blade espresso grinder typically has a fan shaped blade that chops up the beans and these tend to be the less expensive type. However the blade type can produce grounds of inconsistent sized grains. If you are looking for more consistent grounds, which is typically said to make better tasting coffee, the espresso burr coffee grinder can be a better choice and this crushes the beans between a stationary surface and a grinding wheel.

Prices for coffee grinders which are suitable for home use can vary between £40 at the more affordable end of the market up to around £600 for the more professional style of grinder. For commercial espresso grinders the price can go up as high as £1000 to £2000 for top grade equipment.

Some of the companies that manufacture coffee grinders include Cimbali, Capresso and Rancilio. Examples of the espresso grinders on the market include The Iberital MC2 At around £130 to purchase this is considered to be one of the best budget grinders available. It has conical steel burrs which provide high precision grinding and has 16 settings allowing extra fine to coarse grinding. It also has a timer which can be set between 5 and 60 seconds and this allows you to work to an accurate grinding time. The Rancilio Rocky Burr Grinder with Doser is considered to be another good grinder and this retails for around £245. This is a medium duty grinder which is good for the home or small business. The grinding wheels are made of high quality hardened, tempered steel which provides a consistent grind and pulling the dosing handle will dispense around 7 grams of ground coffee each time.

To make the best possible home made coffee an espresso grinder can be an essential piece of equipment. It ensures you have the freshest grounds possible to make your daily espresso and this will help you make a great tasting cup of coffee every time.
