  • Regular price £4.75


A Tribute to Queen Catherine of Braganza. Catherine and her husband King Charles II introduced tea to England around 1662. Their passion for tea resulted in England becoming a tea drinking nation (ref: Tea Illustrated ISBN978-1-905400-64-5). This oolong tea is the same in nature and taste as the teas Queen Catherine and the court would have enjoyed at that time - non astringent, light flowery tea with a spicy taste.
