Fun to know: Over the ensuing centuries, the blossoms came to symbolize the Western ideal of love and marriage and their popularity grew, particularly in wedding bouquets. In Victorian England, Orange blossom bouquets were so popular the flowers were imported from Florida strictly for that purpose. It was said at the time that the scent of Orange Blossoms could cause anyone to fall in love.
Well, we aren’t matchmakers but 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 flavour 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 flavour 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!
