The Lady Londonderry Tea blend is a delightful afternoon tea with a malty floral flavor and elegant hints of strawberry and lemon. A delicious blend served hot or served iced.
Throughout history there has been as association between royalty, lifestyle, and tea. 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 of China tea. She started serving it to her aristocratic friends at Court and 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 become fashionable in the city of London. Tea consumption progressed further and it became fashionable in London to have afternoon tea. At these gatherings, dainty sandwiches and delicate cakes were served. We can only imagine what these gatherings would have turned into had they been able to enjoy a lightly and elegantly flavored strawberry Lemon Tea- it is no wonder this tea is called Lady Londonderry.
