Good but very expensive
This is a worthy substitute for Willow Tea Rooms’ version, which I haven’t been able to get lately. It’s much better than Ahmad (which has some bizarre undertones) and Twinings. Stronger than John Barney’s good-tasting but weak cassis tea. The price is quite steep however, so it will be a rare purchase.
