I love this tea so much. I randomly picked up a “tagalong” tin of it at the Tower of London when I visited last fall, before my recent tea obsession even took hold. I figured, I like tea, and this is The blend of the Tower, so why not? When I got home and tried it, it blew me away. Fruity and honeyed, with an underlying lovely bergamot flavor… it’s basically my number one tea at this point.

I was thrilled to find out that I wouldn’t need to go to the Tower of London, or even order from London, to replenish this tea. It actually took me a while to drink through my tagalong because I didn’t want the tea to end. I recently bought a whole tin of it from Harney (and I think I might have gotten the last one, because right afterward it was out of stock!), and I’m in heaven. Today I’m drinking it out of my Tower of London tea cup that features the famous ravens with little royal guard outfits on. Perfect cup of tea!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
