    Harney & Sons Queen Catherine Loose Tea 1 lb Bag


    Product description

    The Queen Catherine tea, a Harney & Sons signature blend of three Chinese black teas (Keemun, Panyang and Yunnan), was created in honor of Queen Catherine of Braganza, who introduced her love of tea to the British. The aroma is an interesting blend of muted cocoa and spice. As might be expected of a good Chinese tea blend, the flavors are round and relaxed, a blend of dark honey, unsweetened cocoa and hints of spice. Caffeinated. Medium-bodied.

    Ingredients: Black tea.

    This tea has a backstory folded into another backstory. Queen Catherine was a British queen and she helped popularize tea drinking in England, so we call her the "Patron Saint of Tea." This tea was originally commissioned in 1988 by a branch of the Portuguese government as a project to improve the image of their country. The main project was to build a statue of Catherine of Braganza in the Queens Borough (that borough was named after her) in NYC. That project was dashed; however, the tea lived on.
