I’m reading a book right now called “The Dressmaker” that is about the Titanic sinking and what happened afterwards. The book is pretty interesting and since I had a sample of this in my cupboard I figured this would be a perfect tea to start the day with. The tea smells deliciously matly with just a hint of sweetness, like a citrusy sweetness. The flavor is robust, but not overly done. There is an almost bitter finish, but it’s actually a nice little kick at the end. I added some milk and sweetener and it became a smooth, sweet cup of tea. This isn’t the strongest black tea blend, but it’s nice and light. I think it’s also a little more sweet than your average black tea blend. This apparently has some oolong in it too, so maybe that’s what is balancing everything out. I kind of like it as a breakfast tea during the summer, it’s not too heavy when the weather is super hot. It’s kind of fun to see what type of tea they were drinking back in the days of the Titanic. I’m glad that reading the book made me remember about this little sample sitting in the back of my cupboard!

-Dry blend has medium black and brown tea leaves and twigs.
-Dry leaves smell malty and slightly sweet. Tea liquor aroma is of malty black tea with a hint of sweet citrus.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark reddish brown color.
-Robust flavor with an almost bitter finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A lightly robust black tea. Perfect for the summer.

Did you know this is just their Palm Court loose leaf tea put into bags? I was quite happy to find out, because I want loose leaf but I needed to buy tea s a gift for someone who only does bags and I thought this was a great choice for his tastes. It is super yummy mixed with Rose Scented from H&S.

That’s odd! The tea that I have is actually a loose sample. When I ordered it from the website, it said that it had been created to honor the anniversary of the Titanic! If it is the same, I’m glad that I got to try the Palm Court blend at least! I liked it, very light and a good afternoon tea. Can you believe that I haven’t tried the Rose Scented yet? I have a gift certificate that I need to use to Harney’s and that one is at the top of my list! :)

I need to order more Rose Scented and I want some of the AliSan Oolong! I tried a sample and loved it but I have been trying to reduce my cupboard first! When SimplyJen ordered her first tin of Titanic, it said on the packing slip that it was Palm Court. We checked the teas listed as being in the blend and they are the same. PC doesn’t come in sachets, Titanic doesn’t come loose, so it was a win/win in a way!

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
