As the temperature rises, here’s our guide to the top 10 summer teas. Get ready to feel refreshed!

1. Ronnefeldt White Rose Dream

Enjoy the delicate taste of white tea with this delicious floral treat. Pai Mu Tan leaves are blended with exotic rose petals to give White Rose Dream a highly distinctive flavour that is guaranteed to satisfy on a warm day. Even better, with a brewing time of just a couple of minutes, you can be out in the garden enjoying your cuppa in no time at all.

2. Darjeeling Badamtam 2015 Organic First Flush

The Champagne of teas, and a real treat for tea aficionados. This delicious First Flush arrives from the Badamtam tea garden in the foothills of the Himalayas, and delivers a floral finish that cleanses the palate and enlivens the senses. There’s no doubt that this is one of the finest teas you can buy in 2015 – but get hold of yours quickly, because supplies are limited!

3. Ronnefeldt Green Oasis

Fancy the refreshing flavour of gunpowder green tea with a hit of Moroccan peppermint thrown in for good measure? Green Oasis is perfect as a post-barbecue aid to digestion, but its delicate flavours make it a hit at any time of day. You’ll enjoy the distinctive shape of the pellet-sized leaves, but you’ll relish the refreshing taste even more.

4. Ronnefeldt Apricot Sorbet

This highly unusual tea has real pieces of apricot and buckthorn berries blended with black and green tea. Sultanas and safflower petals also find their way into the mix, giving an aromatic flavour that is by turns creamy, fruity and summery. Just like the sorbet after which it is named, in fact – making it the ideal brew for a day in the sunshine.

5. Ronnefeldt Mango Magic Organic

You may not expect green Sencha tea from China to contain a taste of the tropics, but that’s exactly what Mango Magic does. It’s a wonderful pick-me-up, with mango flavours overlaid on marigold and cornflower blossoms. One of our customers describes it as “really special,” while another says it’s a “lovely flavour when you need a fruit burst.”

6. Ronnefeldt Silver Yunnan

One of the most striking things about Silver Yunnan is its large silvery leaf buds, which have a striking beauty that makes it almost a pity to cover them in hot water. But if you take the plunge, you’ll be rewarded with a speciality white tea that has a fruity, flowery finish that is guaranteed to refresh, renew and reinvigorate you.

7. Ronnefeldt Green Angel Teavelope Organic

You know how it is. Some days you long for the ritual of making loose-leaf tea, and other days you need a quick fix of quality tea before tackling the next task. The Green Angel Teavelope is designed for just such an occasion, and will reward you with a taste that’s part peach, part pear. Flavour, refreshment and convenience, all in one handy packet.

8. Ronnefeldt Ceylon Orange Pekoe

For many, Ceylon is the archetypal tea to sup on a hot day. With a golden-red colour, this Orange Pekoe is a full-flavoured variety of an old favourite, grown in the Dimbula district of Sri Lanka. It’s definitely a good choice for those who enjoy a strong cuppa, and it works particularly well with a plate of tasty scones or cake.

9. Ronnefeldt Lavender Dream

One of the great joys of walking through an English summer garden is the smell of fresh lavender that assaults your senses. Now, you can enjoy that same flavour in a cup, with Lavender Dream. Based on a green rooibos, this naturally caffeine-free tea combines the perfume of lavender with a hint of lemon myrtle, resulting in a sparkling brew that that will soothe away your cares.

10. Ronnefeldt Lemon Twist

No list of summer teas would be complete without the inclusion of a good old-fashioned lemon tea. But Lemon Twist is by no means your average brew, thanks to apple, blackberry leaves, roasted chicory root and lemon grass finding their way into the infusion. It’s citrusy and floral in equal measure, and tastes perfect both hot and as an iced tea.
