The Classic English Breakfast
Starting off our cake pairings we've got the ultimate classic, English Breakfast tea. This popular tea blend is beloved with good reason. Robust and refreshing, English Breakfast can easily be sweetened by adding some milk or sugar and complements many of your favourite sweet treats.

Trust us, this combo is an absolute must-try!
Earl Grey Goodness
This uniquely aromatic tea is made by infusing bergamot oil with tea leaves which creates Earl Grey’s distinct citrus and floral blend. These citrus notes also make it a perfect companion for our refreshing Orange and Poppyseed muffins! These sweet American-style muffins contain pieces of orange and have crunchy poppyseeds sprinkled throughout. The citrus flavour in both the tea and the dessert blend together, while the slight astringency of the black tea enhances the sweetness of the cake. Enjoy this quintessentially British tea with our zesty muffins for an invigorating energy boost throughout the day.
Time For A Coffee Break
Now let’s not forget about everybody’s favourite early-morning pick me up! If you're all about that bold and intense espresso flavour, then our Double Choc Chip Choc Muffins is your new best friend. The rich, slightly bitter flavour of espresso pairs perfectly with these sweet chocolate muffins, each generously sprinkled with mini chocolate chips inside and on top. Whether you're gearing up for a fantastic day with a toasted muffin for breakfast, or just taking a well-deserved coffee break, this combo is your go-to for chocolate-y indulgence.
What do you get when you cross a cinnamon doughnut and a muffin? Mufnutz, of course! Since cinnamon is the star flavour of these popular baked goodies, chai tea is the clear choice for a hot drink pairing. The warm and spicy notes of chai tea complement the slight sweetness of our Mufnutz which are filled with raspberry jam and topped with crunchy cinnamon sugar. If you love chai tea then this is truly a charming pairing.

Its vibrant and earthy flavour perfectly complements the rich taste of dark chocolate, making it the go-to combination for green tea and matcha drinkers.
