A Romantic Bouquet - Formerly named the Queen of Hearts Tea, this royal tea blend has the light spice of delicate, safflower, young rose buds and petals atop the sweet fullness of China black tea.
Safflower is a highly branched, thistle like annual plant. The flower is used in cooking as a substitute for saffron, and is known to reduce cholesterol and used to treat fevers.
Blended in late summer when the roses are in full bloom and at their most fragrant, rose petals have a distinct sweet, cooling aroma that lends great balance to the blend.
Tea Czar Nicholas II is a Royal tradition, perfect served in fine China cups for kings, queens, friends and loved ones!
Very smooth, fragrant, black tea without a lot of tannic bitterness. Easy to enjoy without adding a thing.
