Details: 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 the rich tones of 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, vanilla, and 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. There is also a nice touch of honey.
