    Product description

    Queen Catherine, a Harney & Sons signature blend, is three Chinese black teas (Keemun, Panyang and Yunnan), 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. This is a medium bodied tea and fills the mouth nicely and tranquilly with flavors that are round and relaxed with a blend of dark honey, unsweetened cocoa and hints of spice. Caffeinated.

    Ingredients: Black tea.

    Harney & Sons created this blend of three Chinese black teas in honor of Queen Catherine of Braganza, who introduced her love of tea to the British. This tea has a back story folded into another back story. 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.
