Description

If there's one thing we're sure you'll fall in love with it's this tea. The blend was created using a semi-fermented oolong from Taiwan known for a lively full flavor with hints of berry jam and sweet floral undertones. Since food quality orange blossoms are a little harder to come by today than during the Victorian era, after extensive profiling we recreated their flavor using a mix of jasmine and dried orange pieces which we added to the tea. Rounding out the blend is a Ceylon black tea for some added depth. Like love, the cup is sublime. Brew a pot for someone special today!

After a botanist made the discovery, he decided to name the flower Neroli bigarade after Princess Nerola the daughter of the ruler of the town where it was found. The princess was delighted and took to wearing a perfume created from the delicate white petals of the blossom. Some legends claim that the Princess and the botanist fell in love and ,Here married, but as town records were poor this remains unsubstantiated. Sounds romantic though!
