The Met has partnered with Harney & Sons on this unique, art-inspired tin containing loose-leaf tea and displaying a detail from an extraordinary Chinese dish (early 16th century) in The Met Collection.

This warming elixir of black tea, orange peel, cinnamon, and cloves references the fiery might of the dragons painted on the Ming dynasty-era (1368–1644) creation in the Museum's holdings. The trend of cobalt blue paint on white porcelain flowered in China during the 14th century, after which it was adapted by potters through the centuries and around the world.

Ingredients: Black tea, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves. Contains natural and artificial flavors.

 Details: This is one of our oldest flavored tea blends. John Harney developed it in the beginning of the 1980s. Over the decades its popularity has only grown, and now it is our most popular tea. People love its combination of strong spices and sweetness. And since there are no sugars (we tested it), it is safe for everyone to enjoy.
 Dry Leaves: Chinese black tea is the base of this tea so the leaves are dark brown. There are pieces of cinnamon bark and orange peel covered with cinnamon dust.
 Liquor: The liquor of this tea is a medium brown with orange hues.
 Aroma: This tea has a very strong aroma of spices and citrus.
 Flavors: WOW! This tea is one of our most flavorful (and popular), combining orange with natural cinnamon, natural and artificial cinnamon flavors, and cloves.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied. Hot Cinnamon Spice fills your mouth with a melange of spices.
