Harney and Sons
Harney & Sons Earl Grey Imperial is part of our distinguished line of historical English tea blends which we created especially for the Historic Royal Palaces of England. A blend of fine black teas, it's rich in natural Bergamot.
Historic Royal Palacesis an independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle.
Details:This tea was in the original five teas that made up our Historic Royal Palace tea line. The tin is a lovely blue that is reminiscent of the sapphires found in the Tower of London's Crown Jewels. We blended a special Earl Grey for this occasion. It is stronger in body than the Earl Grey Supreme (a nod to our British cousins' taste for strong teas.) And the lemony bergamot is also stronger than our other Earl Greys.
Dry Leaves:A mixture of black and brown leaves.
Liquor:The liquor is a clear brown, tending toward russet.
Aroma:The lemony aroma of bergamot from Italy comes through clearly.
