Tower of London Blend is reminiscent of Elizabethan preserves, flavourful and tempting. We stir Chinese black teas with pieces of dried stone fruit, then finish the blend with oil of bergamot and honey flavour. It's the amethyst-like 'jewel' in our Historic Royal Palaces Collection. 

Historic Royal Palaces is an independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. 

Ingredients: black tea, oolong tea, vanilla, black currant, natural caramel flavours, bergamot oil, natural honey flavour.

 Details: Few buildings have the history of the Tower of London. First it was a fort. Then it became the royal prison, so there were some unhappy endings here. It has even stored the Crown Jewels. So when we were commissioned by the Historic Royal Palaces to do a tea in honor of it, we took it seriously (who wants to do time there?) The color of the tin is inspired by the rich tones of amethyst.
 Dry Leaves: The Chinese leaves are medium sized and black.
 Liquor: The liquor is medium to dark brown.
 Aroma: A wonderfully refreshing tea with fruity aromas, vanilla, and undertones of honey.
 Flavors: This tea is complicated, like the Tower itself. It has flavors similar to Earl Grey, Vanilla and Black Currant. There is also a nice touch of honey.
