Tower of London Blend is reminiscent of Elizabethan preserves, flavorful and tempting. We stir Chinese black teas with pieces of dried stone fruit, then finish the blend with oil of bergamot and honey flavor. Featured in our Historic Royal Palaces Collection, it has become one of our most popular teas, especially with its brilliant amethyst-inspired tin.

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.
The Chinese leaves are medium sized and black.
The liquor is medium to dark brown.
A wonderfully refreshing tea with fruity aromas, vanilla, and undertones of honey.
A medium to strong body.
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.
