Lady Londonderry Afternoon Tea - House Blend
Fresh lively mint combines with full flavoured Earl Grey. Throughout history there has always been an association between royalty lifestyle and tea. For example tea's fate in Britain took a turn in 1662 when King Charles II married the Portuguese princess Catherine of Braganza. Britain's new queen was a confirmed tea drinker long before she arrived for her wedding. As partof her dowry she brought with her a chest of Chinese tea. Soon she began serving it to her aristocratic friends at Court. As word of the new beverage spread more and more people wished to try it for themselves. Ladies enjoyed tea at home while gentlemen often drank their tea in the coffee houses that had been established in the City of London. Tea consumption progressed further and over time it became very fashionable in London to have afternoon tea. At these gatherings dainty sandwiches and delicate cakes were served.
