Our Review
Few buildings have the history of the Tower of London. First it was a fort. Then it became the royal prison, so there were some unhappy endings here. It has even stored the Crown Jewels. So when we were commissioned by the Historic Royal Palaces to do a tea in honor of it, we took it seriously (who wants to do time there?) The color of the tin is inspired by amethyst.
Dry Leaves The Chinese leaves are medium sized and black.
Liquor The liquor is medium to dark brown.
Aroma A wonderfully refreshing tea with fruity aromas and vanilla with undertones of honey.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body A medium to strong body.
Flavors This tea is complicated, like the Tower itself. It has flavors similar to Earl Grey, Vanilla and Black Currant, and there is a touch of honey.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Tower of London

Chinese black teas are stirred with pieces of dried stone fruit, then finished with oil of bergamot and honey flavor. This blend is reminiscent of Elizabethan preserves, flavorful and tempting.

Best Tea Ever
Average Review:

@Brenna Misae If your willing to put a little more effort in you can buy a pound bag of loose leaf! When I found this tea I had absolutely no intention of purchasing any tea. I had just recieved a new box from another site and had completely filled the tea drawer of my home. However one day while scrolling through my tumblr feed I fell into a trap when I read a review on this very tea. The review was extremely accurate and detailed, and after seeing how reasonably priced it was I caved and ordered a tin. After trying it and seeing it was even better than expected I now have a pound of looseleaf on hand at all times. If you like a plummy black tea with just a hint of honey and citrus this is the absolute best option. JUST TRY IT

This is such a beautiful blend of tea..the jammy berry notes are delightful! A drop of honey just enhances this delicious tea. I can't get enough! Make in decaf too!

Wonderful tea.
Average Review:

I am not a fan of bergamot, so am surprised that it is one of the ingredients. There is just a hint of all of the ingredient flavors - none overpower the others, which is what makes it so nice. One of my favorites.
