“I got a sample of this from Sandy’sCuppa. The dry tea smelled almost identical to Earl Grey. Which, as everyone already knows, I love. The tea brewed strong and dark, which is what I had expected...” Read full tasting note
“Very floral. I love how the tea is so layered with flavors. Its Earl Grey, then it’s more English breakfast. I used a French press, steeped for 4 minutes. Will definitely buy more!” Read full tasting note


Delicate medium tea with hint of Earl Grey and Jasmine. This is a lighter afternoon tea.

Every May the Queen holds a garden party at Buckingham Palace, a lovely English springtime tradition. The tea that is served is long time favorite and delicious Palace medley specially selected for this occasion. Intriguing hints of high-grown pure Ceylon Earl Grey blend effortlessly with the soft jasmine from Fujian Province. Couple this with malty Assam (from the estate of Borengajuli) flavory Dimbula Ceylon (from Hatton), brisk and golden cup East of Rift Kenya (from Kambaa and Kagwe) and you have one of the most flavorful teas to come from the British Isles. Each cup is a cup of mystery – the flavors all come to the fore at separate times – one minute you taste the Earl Grey, the next second you can almost feel the soft floral notes of jasmine and finally you get the satisfying fullness of the Assam Ceylon and Kenya blend. Enjoy this tea and be a part of the annual tradition in the west gardens of Buckingham Palace, without having to dress up!
