DARVILLES of WINDSOR is the oldest established company in Windsor and our family business has specialised in the tea trade and as warranted grocers to the Royal Household since 1946. Our expert traditions and tea expertise lie in the long history of sourcing only the very finest ingredients from India, East Africa, Sri Lanka and China to produce exceptional quality teas for you to enjoy.
We have continually developed our blends for more than 160 years carefully refining and protecting their unique and individual flavours over that time to bring you an exceptional English tea experience. Our black tea blends are available as loose leaves in beautiful tin caddies or for convenience in individually wrapped sachets or loose teabags; to prepare please use freshly drawn and freshly boiled water and to allow the delicious flavours to fully develop please leave to infuse for a full 4 to 5 minutes in your favourite teapot then strain as you pour. Leaving the water in contact with the leaves for longer is not advised as it will make the tea bitter and astringent. Serve black or with milk to taste in your best bone china tea cups or mugs
WE ARE VERY PROUD to have the Royal Warrant, first granted to us in 1946 by King George VI, and we continue to supply our teas and groceries to Windsor Castle and the Royal Windsor Farm Shop.
