Buckingham Palace Garden Party

A very flavorful blend of Ceylon, Earl Grey, Assam, and Jasmine. This particular blend is served every May during a garden party hosted By Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace.

Every May the Queen holds a garden party at Buckingham Palace that is a lovely English springtime tradition. The Queen invites between 3000 and 4000 guests. Regal cucumber and watercress sandwiches served on white bread, smoked Scottish salmon pate, delicately scented earl grey cakes, and most importantly: tea are served on this prestigious occasion. The guests rub shoulders with lords, earls, dukes, duchesses and ladies from the aristocratic British society. At about 3:00 p.m. the Royal Family make their entrance- the Queen, Prince Philip, the Queen Mother, and perhaps even Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Andrew. You can see the scene now- the Queen, Prince Philip and the Queen Mother- dressed in formal spring party clothing, mingling with the excited crowd; shaking hands, smiling, stopping briefly to chat with the guests, making eye contact and the royal nod of the head to acknowledge one's presence for those unable to personally meet the Royal Family.

The tea that is served is long time favorite and delicious Palace medley specially selected for this occasion. Intriguing hints of high-grown pure Ceylon Earl Grey blend effortlessly with the soft jasmine from Fujian Province. Couple this with malty Assam (from the estate of Borengajuli) flavory Dimbula Ceylon (from Hatton), brisk and golden cup East of Rift Kenya (from Kambaa and Kagwe) and you have one of the most flavorful teas to come from the British Isles. Each cup is a cup of mystery - the flavors all come to the fore at separate times - one minute you taste the Earl Grey, the next second you can almost feel the soft floral notes of jasmine and finally you get the satisfying fullness of the Assam Ceylon and Kenya blend.
