Our favorite smoky floral afternoon tea. Now in tea bags for the first time This tea that is so uniquely delicious, it makes people leave other brands for good.
- ▼ Details & Ingredients
The aroma of darkly seductive violet flowers fills the air. In the first sip purple flowers meet dark elderberry and ripe blackberry. This is a magical black, oolong, and smoked tea blend with rich floral and black berry notes. Berry flavors are deepened by slatey tannins. A faint smokiness lingers in the finish, reminiscent of far-off incense and candle smoke from the smoked lapsang souchong tea. A touch of milk softens the tannins and brightens the berry and floral flavors. An elegant tea for afternoon or with a special dessert. A tea for lovers of violet, dark berries, and incense.
