This could be love. I tried Queen Catherine after reading the many wonderful reviews about it here and at other sites. When a tea (or any object) is so loved I’m almost afraid to try it because I doubt there is any way for it to live up to all the hype. The Queen, however, rules. This tea is strong but not overbearing. There are slight notes of chocolate and coffee (maybe?) and a smokey note at the finish that I love. Such a lovely tea. I look forward to spending many more moments with the Queen.
