Twinings Diamond Jubilee Tea Blend
I can’t get this here in the US without paying lots for overseas shipping. Anyone have some they could spare that they’d be willing to swap for? I am hosting a Diamond Jubilee tea on June 2 and was wanting something “official.” :)
If I did I sure would share it with you. Fun idea. Did you check Harney’s website?
Yeah, Harney isn’t offering any Jubilee blends, just Titanic blend. :) May just have to blend my own or pay the shipping. Problem is that it becomes expensive quickly since I feel silly ordering just one tin of tea and paying all that shipping, so I look around and find other teas and teapots and… :)
LOL yeah I understand the issue. I take it Brits didn’t have any in Lawrence?
Nah. They had 2 really expensive teapots, tea towels, napkins, bunting, etc. but none of the special tea blends. Not that that stopped me from dropping way too much money! :)
LOL I know the feeling. I need to get up there soon!
I went to Harney’s site right after I posted and saw that “Titanic” tea. I am so tempted – just for the tin. :)
Woohoo! Harney has a blend now. Just have to hope it gets here in time. :)
They do?! Oh darn, too late for me probably also. But I guess I have the whole month of June to celebrate, and I’m not even British. Thanks for the heads up.
Nicole – did you get your tea in time and how did the tea party go? I ordered some Diamond Jubilee thinking they had gotten another shipment in, but alas received an email that it would be shipped as soon as more came in. I think the tin itself probably is popular just as a collector’s item.
I did, yes! The first tea party went well, but I didn’t have the blend in time for that one. The second tea party, which I did have the tea in time for didn’t come off. We had a family emergency come up and Mom & I had to cancel the tea. We have tried it, though, and I’m going to get a review up soon. I love the tin! Hope you get yours soon!
