About the Historic Royal Palaces Collection
Harney & Sons Fine Teas were invited by the Historic Royal Palaces of England (A non-profit organization that helps explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped the society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.) to create a notable and exquisite collection of English tea blends. Each unique tea blend pays homage to tea's imperial history and roots.
In 1660, the 17th-century diarist Samuel Pepys had his first ever 'Cup of Tea, a China drink', then only introduced to Britain. Catherine of Braganza, Charles II's tea-drinking queen, made it fashionable, Queen Anne would often enjoy a cup of tea at Hampton Court Palace and the double wedding of Queen Charotte's son at Kew in 1818 was celebrated with tea party. Until the abolition of import duties in 1784, tea was the expensive preserve of royalty and the rich. Despite its ubiquity in later times, tea is truly historic, royal tipple.
