Sainsbury's Red Tea 240 Tea Bag Box
The original Sainsburys Tea, direct from England and now available in the US. Sainsbury Tea is 100% Fairtrade.

Authentic Sainsbury's Red Label Tea. Sainsbury's has been offering this tea for over 110 years. Founder John James Sainsbury created this tea in 1903.

In each box of Sainsbury Red, you will find the tea bags come in foil packages, which preserves freshness of the tea. The tea bags are blended and packed in the United Kingdom.

To make the perfect cup of Sainsburys Tea, use one tea bag per cup. If making a tea pot, use an extra tea bag for the pot. Always use freshly boiled water each time you make tea. If you re-boil the same water, it loses its oxygen, which is required to bring out the full flavor of the tea. Sainsbury's Red, make sure the water is at a rolling boil. Then, allow tea to steep for 3 to 5 minutes. If you like, add sugar and milk, but this is optional.

    Best Tea Ever

    Posted by Linda on Oct 5th 2018

    I just LOVE the Sainsbury's Red Label Tea Bags! They are my favorite, and I hate to run out of them, like I just did recently. Nice to have my favorite tea back in my home.

    Sainsbury's Red Label Tea

    Posted by Jude K on Mar 28th 2017

    I was so excited when I discovered I could get my favorite tea here in the U.S. Having lived in the UK for 12 years, this was the only tea we drank. Since moving back to the U.S. in 2007 we've been dependent on visitors from the UK to bring us tea! Now we can have a "cuppa" anytime we want! With great thanks!

    Sainsbury's Red Label Tea is the Best!

    Posted by Carol on Jan 18th 2017

    Many years ago I had Sainsbury's Red Label Tea in London. Thanks for carrying. Now I can sit at the breakfast table with my cup of tea and the newspaper. Great without being bitter. Use a teapot and boiling water. Steep for 6 min. Add skim milk. Enjoy!

    Best English Tea on the Market

    Posted by Dana Miller on May 24th 2016

    I have a British Expat living with me, and have learned how to make a 'proper cup of tea'. The fist rule is: have the right tea to start with. And this tea is it. It truly makes the difference between an ok cup and a great cup. This tea is not readily available at the market here in the states, so thank you for having it at Tea Dog.

    Posted by Betty on May 21st 2016

    My daughter loves this tea. We bring it back from Plyymouth every year. She ran short and was devastated we wouldn't be able to refill her supply. Thanks for saving the day!
