A tribute to Queen Catherine of Braganza, this is an afternoon tea fit for a queen! Catherine and her husband King Charles II introduced tea to England around 1662. According to leading tea historian Jane Pettigrew, their passion for tea resulted in England becoming a tea-drinking nation. 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.
Presented in an airtight decorative gift caddy, this unique afternoon tea blend makes a perfect small gift, and is also available as part of our Coat of Arms Tea Set, featuring three loose tea gift caddies and a stylish glass teapot.
