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.

I have been making my own version of this using Earl Grey tea and a little vanilla syrup. No need for that any more. This is delicious.

This is by far my favourite tea, aroma, flavour, get with milk or just plain.

This is the very best tea flavour I have ever had, I tried it at a popular restaurant and demanded they give me the name of the tea. They actually gave me a few sachets. I was hooked forever

Tower of London is far and away my favourite tea. I love the taste, I love the aroma and I find it just satisfies my no matter when I drink it.

My favourite of all the flavours, if I was stranded on an island, that would be the tea I would like to have.
The Best Tea Ever

This tea is the best I have ever had. I love the flavour. If I had to pick only one tea to drink this would be my first choice.
Not good. I love most black teas, but this one was at the bottom

It seems to taste like a blend that was made by mistake. Just not a full bodied rich tea as one would hope from the name. This was the last on my list of received tea in my shipment. Not recommended.

This is by far the best tea of all, love the flavour. I will continue to order this one for sure. I have ordered before and still love it. This is the first time ordering from Premium Tea, the whole experience was super.
Fantastic tea, fabulous flavor

Like many others, I'm a dedicated Harney and Sons customer.My favorites are Paris and Hot Cinnamon. Buy those immediately if you have not yet tried them.
Happily, this blend is likewise delicious. The fragrance alone is worth it, frankly - a heady mix of fancy berry jam and vanilla/honey. A delectable cup to savor any time of year - it's wonderful on ice as well.
Also, for those wondering, the tin design is not only elegant but also very functional. Teas are quite fresh and the lid seals beautifully. Bonus points for rich aubergine color.
