It's no secret that the British love, ok need, their tea. Indeed, we have loved it so much over the past centuries that it has become one of Britain’s number one trademarks.
So we decided that we wanted to create an exclusive and delicious blend that would not only commemorate Britain’s long lasting love affair with tea but also truly reflect our spirit. A brew that wouldn’t only taste great but that would also tell a story.
We teamed up with the great British Brew Tea Co to bring you the strong and smokey Worker’s Blend Loose Leaf Tea.
The first batch sold out. So we packed our bags, headed up north to Manchester and paid our friends at Brew Tea Co a visit, picking up a fresh batch of Worker's Blend at the same time.
It looks different - we've reworked the packaging - but it still has the same great smoky taste.
In the 1800s, British industrial workers started taking tea breaks in the afternoon to help keep them fuelled, alert and to subdue hunger.
Our earthy blend will take you back to this Victorian Camden, where canal workers, railway men and raffish aristocrats lived, worked and drank side by side.
Combining 80% Assam indian black tea with 20% Lapsang Souchong Chinese black tea (a tea that is smoke-dried over pinewood fires, lending it a distinctive smokey taste), our worker’s blend is rich, hearty and smoky. Pour it into a thermos to keep you warm on a hike, or take it with milk as you settle in on a long winter’s night.
Or, if cocktails are more your - ahem - cup of tea, then it works great infused in gin for a G&T with a twist.
When we started The Camden Watch Co., we always knew that we wanted to collaborate with forward-thinking and creative businesses like ours. We got in touch Brew Tea Co before we had even launched to see if they would be up for a collaboration and it was the start of a long and happy friendship. They instantly loved the idea of helping us produce our very own blend of tea and we’ve been working together ever since.
Psst… Looking for a perfect mug to enjoy your Worker’s Blend Loose Leaf Tea? What about sipping your delicious brew out of one of these gentlemen:

But did you ever wonder how a place becomes so emblematic? Let’s go back to the origin of Camden Town.

The only day of the year when food is not only plates but also falling from the ceiling is upon us. Yes, you’ve guessed it, it’s finally Pancake Day.
By now your cupboards should be filled up with lemon and sugar (and perhaps a cheeky bit of chocolate sauce) because it is expected of us to eat our weight in pancakes, and we shall not disappoint.
As great as this day might be, did you ever wonder where it came from?
Allow us to take you back to the origins of Pancake Day and introduce you to the proper way of celebrating it.
