Our Tea Selection
After tasting many teas and testing lots of suppliers we have found we had the best in flavoursome and interesting teas on our doorstep. We are proud to be offering tea from Taylors of Harrogate. For three generations their family business has been blending excellent tea which are served in the splendour of Swinton Park.
Swinton Park is a member of the Tea Guild and is honored to have been awarded the prestigious “Award of Excellence” in recognition of the quality of the ingredients used and service of tea.
All our teas can be served as they are or with milk or lemon. Please find below a selection of what you may find on our menu:
Swinton Park’s Blend
A blend that has been made especially for us. Very similar to Yorkshire Tea and perfect for all-day drinking.
Assam Single Estate
From the finest Assam tea grown in the Brahmaputra Valley in North-East India. This tea is selected from the second flush when leaves are at their best. The flavour is distinctively malty.
