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.

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.

Sublime! Review by Ramona
Average Review:
I am a big fan of flavored tea, especially fruit teas. I am also a big fan of purple. There was a sale online recently of the HRP teas and after reading the description, of Tower of London, I decided that if I didn't like the tea, I'd still have the lovely purple canister. I LOVE the tea AND the canister!! I've read that people say it has a vanilla flavor to it but honestly, I don't taste vanilla, I just get the fruit and a honey undertone, which together make me feel like I am drinking a modern version of Elizabethan mead. It is smooth and fruity with a honey flavor and I can think of nothing better with raw sugar, a touch of honey and cream. And taking the wonderful purple tin out of my cabinet every time I make a cup is just the cherry on the sundae as far as I'm concerned! I discovered Harney tea less than six months ago and I've already got more than 15 varieties here! Thanks Harney, Tower of London is one of my favorites so far and I highly recommend it!

My intro to Harney Review by julia
Average Review:
This was one of the first teas from Harney's that we tried. I found it reduced at Williams-Sonoma. Wow,was that a stroke of luck! This became an instant favorite. It just has a great blend of flavor and has not become bitter the next day if we don't finish (this is extremely rare). You won't regret trying this one. (Posted on 5/18/14)

Very happy with this blend Review by Maddie
Average Review:
I bought this blend for my birthday tea party and it is the best blend of tea that I've tried (and I've tried numerous blends from different brands). It smells incredible! You can taste the sweetness by just smelling it. I wouldn't mind having my whole house in this wonderful smell. The tea it self was as delicious as the smell, a good balance blend; not too weak and not too strong. Overall, I was VERY happy with this blend. (Posted on 4/6/14)

the most superb tea in the world! Review by pumpkin lady
Average Review:
I was give this tea as a gift (im a coffee drinker) so wasnt expecting much but the beautiful smell had me dying to try it! Heavily vanilla and honey notes and an almost floral aroma reminiscent of old english roses and a warm summers afternoon.

The smell was divine and the brew surpassed the dreamy aroma. Its smooth, aromatic and amazingly relaxing. It's a drink to take your time over, one that makes you feel thoroughly indulgent.

Perfect on its own but delightful with a nice scone and jam.

I will never be without my Tower of London and it has kicked my coffee habit! (Posted on 2/28/14)

Our favorite by Far Review by Whitney
Average Review:
We tried this tea on a whim. We were very happy we did. This tea has become our house tea. We give this tea as Christmas gifts every year. This tea has something for everybody: a full body black tea, but not bitter like many of the breakfast teas. It has a complexity that is thoroughly enjoyable - it's like a mild vanilla tea with a hint of the earl grey and a subtle fruitiness to it. I cannot recommend this tea high enough.

LOVE Review by DeAnne
Average Review:
One of my favorite Harney teas. It's just perfect. I've spent some time in England and this tea does remind me of the tea I was served there. Very good. (Posted on 2/10/14)
