BLEND NO. 3511

During the 19th century, it was the custom to take an early breakfast and a late supper. Anna Maria Stanhope, the seventh Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857), found that this long gap between meals resulted in a "sinking feeling" at about four o'clock, and so invented Afternoon Tea as a way to fill the gap.

Rich, smooth, not too tannin but just a little kick, addicted since the 90s and order it by mail, couldn’t live without it, has helped me have balance in my life as it restores peace and meditative state when I drink it (I basically have an out of body experience) LOL

Delightful Tea

I first had this tea at the St. Regis and absolutely loved it, but I have never been able to find something similar. Then when I realized that Tealeaves makes this tea (as well as another lovely blend for the St. Regis), I ordered the largest size. It is so lovely, with a light floral flavor. Unlike some other black teas (including the St. Regis blend), though, this one can suffer and cause a weird aftertaste if it's steeped too long.
