Bless the good people of Harney and Sons for giving us a Royal Wedding Tea blend with which to celebrate the upcoming royal nuptials! I ordered a tin the minute I heard it was available, because of course I wanted a "tea souvenir" of the wedding and Harney is certainly a name I know and trust.
The teabags are so pretty!
This white tea is flavored with almond, coconut, vanilla — and rosebuds and petals, which you can see inside the bags. I was pleased the rose flavor is so very subtle, because while I happen to like the flavor of roses, some of my tea party guests may not, but this mildly sweet tasting tea will be a hit, I think.
And once the tea is gone, the tin will be a great reminder of the Royal Wedding and my Royal Wedding Tea. (If you haven't ordered yours yet, last I checked it was still available here.)
This isn't the first time I've celebrated a Royal Wedding with a special tea blend. Prior to Prince Charles' wedding to Camilla in 2005, I ordered a box of this Prince of Wales Royal Wedding Blend Darjeeling from the British Tea Company and sipped it as I watched the ceremony.
In case you're interested, I've found two more tea vendors with special blends to celebrate the upcoming Royal Wedding, Twinings and Fortnum and Mason (already out of stock!). I decided not to order from the U.K., but I'm crossing my fingers that perhaps these will turn up on eBay or in a T.J. Maxx one day. (If you see them before I do, please send an alert!)
