Violet Tea: black tea with violet flowers
The unmistakable scent and uniquely deep flavour of violet flowers makes this violet tea a must for those who adore this popular flower. Signifying innocence, giving violets is a symbol of love, so what better present to give? Violet flowers have meaning in ancient Greek and Roman civilisations and have an important place in Christianity. Blue violet flowers symbolise love and faithfulness and are plainly evident in this wonderfully flavoured black tea. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for three to five minutes. Best drunk without milk or sugar.
Black Tea Flavoured with Black Cherry: simply divine
Our loose leaf black tea is flavoured with natural black cherry and wild cherry flavours. It is rich and divinely fruity and cleary cherry flavoured but without overt sweetness. It promises to be a new favourite! Infuse one teaspoon per cup with freshly drawn and boiled water for four minutes. Drink without milk.
