type: black

origin: china

variety: keemun panyang yunnan

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

We created this blend of three Chinese black teas in honor of Queen Catherine of Braganza, who introduced her love of tea to the British. We are priviledged to have this tea featured in the Museum of Tea in Hangzhou, China. Harney & Sons is the only Western tea company to receive this honor. Dry Leaves: This mixture of three Chinese teas (Keemun, Panyang, & Yunnan) is made up of mostly dark leaves with golden tips. Liquor: A medium brown with dark rusty hues. Aroma: An interesting blend of muted cocoa and spice. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: This is a medium bodied tea, not as full bodied as intense BLT (British Legacy Tea). It fills the mouth nicely and tranquilly. Flavors: As might be expected of a good Chinese tea blend, the flavors are round and relaxed. The flavors come out a bit slower than a BLT. The flavors are a blend of dark honey, unsweetened cocoa and hints of spice. Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes Brewing Temperature: 212° F

      Delicious breakfast tea especially if you want to avoid the astringency found in many Assam blends. Deep flavors that unlayer as you sip.
