Duchess of Bedford Blend
This blend of green and black teas with a hint of jasmine was created to honor Anna Maria Russell, the Duchess of Bedford. The Duchess was a lady-of-the-bedchamber and a life-long friend of Queen Victoria. Although people had taken tea in the afternoon as early as the eighteenth century, it was Anna Maria that introduced afternoon tea to the Royal Court and who is credited with popularizing the ritual of afternoon tea, as we know it today. Our Duchess of Bedford tea was blended to complement and enhance all the rich flavors of the most elegant tea table.
Priced per 2oz.
Irish Breakfast Blend
Irish Breakfast tea is a full-bodied, brisk, malty brew. It is made up of a blend of hearty Indian and China black teas that produce a strong cup of tea with lots of caffeine. This gourmet tea is full of natural antioxidants and it has a robust, invigorating aroma that is sure to jump-start your morning; the longer you allow it to steep, the stronger it becomes. In Ireland, it isn’t referred to as “Irish Breakfast tea.” It is simply “tea” and is drunk all day long. Milk and dairy products are traditionally a major part of the Irish diet and most commonly Irish Breakfast tea is drunk with milk. If you choose to add dairy to your tea, we recommend you serve this tea with MILK (not cream.) The Irish are per capita the highest consumers of tea in the world and after you try our blend you will know why!

This is a wonderfully smooth blend that is a great breakfast drink. I’ve also enjoyed the cups left in the teapot later in the day over ice. In fact, it makes the best iced tea I’ve ever had! Invigorating!!

This is a delightful tea with a very pleasant aroma. The taste, while strong, couldn’t be smoother! Easily one of my new favorite teas for any time of day.
