Working in collaboration with Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London and its passionate team we have created perfect teas, for what is sure to be one of the finest tea rooms in the world. We have crafted signature blends of Breakfast, Afternoon and Directors Reserve, together with a selection of speciality teas, now served at their stylish new tea salon.
The East India Company first introduced tea to Britain as a gift to King Charles II in 1664 and, as such, was instrumental in creating this country’s tea drinking traditions. The Company continues this legacy today, bringing seasonal, rare, and exclusive teas from around the world to London
Commenting on partnership, The East India Company’s Chairman Sanjiv Mehta, says; “We are proud to continue the tradition started with The East India Company’s first voyages east 400 years ago, bringing tea first to London and then to the tables of the world. Working in collaboration with Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London and its passionate team to create perfect teas, for what is sure to be one of the finest tea rooms in the world, has been an exciting journey for The East India Company. Just as the company’s tea clippers raced back with the finest teas of the season, our Tea Master has personally selected teas from some of the finest tea estates to create an unrivalled tea library with rare teas and bespoke blends crafted exclusively for Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.”
