Our Ceylon loose leaf black tea produces a bright, coppery liquor and a full-bodied, yet aromatic cup. A favourite breakfast tea among milk-and-sugar takers, but even better black.
Well loved for its breakfast teas, Sri Lanka has been filling British mugs for over a century. This particular whole leaf, single-origin Ceylon, is grown in the western part of the central highlands.
Now available in 100% plastic-free packaging! Find out more about this change here.

English Breakfast Tea/ Ceylon Tes
The English Breakfast Tea not strong enough. Ceylon tea very good. The former could be blended to have more body and soul!
Delicious without milk, light and refreshing
Reliable every day tea, perfect without milk
Ceylon Black Tea
I stocked up on black tea over lockdown and enjoyed every cup of tea. I always feel very excited to make a cup of tea with Good & Proper tea. I’m looking forward to my next order, I might try the Green tea this time!
I’ve been using Good and Proper Tea Ceylon for years and am never disappointed. It’s A more subtle tea so go light on the milk. I now use Brockley Breakfast during the week and Ceylon on weekends, when there’s more time to sit and appreciate.
Really good tea
This is really nice tea rich and full-bodied. Love the aroma, taste and colour. Having for years tea bag teas and coming back to leaf it's life changing experience. Hight quality beverage.
3g or 1 heaped tsp / 200ml water
With a dash of milk
How to Make Traditional Iced TeaVIEW FULL RECIPE AND METHOD
We work hard to find, taste and select exceptional teas, first and foremost looking for quality and flavour in the cup. We focus on single-origin, whole leaf teas where the character is a direct reflection of the area in which it is grown, as well as the craft involved in growing, plucking and processing the leaves.
There are an infinite number of teas being produced every year, so our role is to find and bring you some of the best. Our care in curating the range, as well as the quality of the product itself, has earned us both our customers’ trust and multiple Great Taste awards.
Not only does the tea need to taste good, it is also important to us that we know exactly where each tea comes from and who is responsible for harvesting and crafting the leaves we buy.
We work exclusively with trusted farms, co-operatives, partners and suppliers who share our values. We source from 13 growing regions around the world, always paying well above fair-trade prices.
Sourcing and curating a collection of delicious, award-winning teas from around the world is only the beginning.
We then provide the knowledge and tools you need to help you bring out the best possible flavour in every cup when brewing at home.
As a team of passionate brewers, blenders, tasters, curators and, perhaps most importantly, drinkers of delicious tea, we get excited about helping you make a delicious cup of tea every time.
We are committed to reducing any environmental impact our packaging has before and after use. There is no perfect solution so we focus on continuous improvement, always looking to keep it as minimal and natural as possible without compromising on the quality of our product.
