Cosy takes tea very seriously and have spent many years developing a range to suit every tea loving taste. From the classic Fairtrade Organic Black Breakfast Tea made with a blend of Assam & Nilgiri teas, to the more unusual tastes of Organic Rooibos made from ‘Redbush’ tea from South Africa with a hint of Vanilla, Cosy really does have it all.

So whether you are enjoying yours with a cheeky slice of cake or simply on its own in your favourite mug, make sure you take some time out on National Tea Day to enjoy a lovely Cosy cuppa!
