A Cup of Celebration - We created this elegant blend in honor of our 20th anniversary. Ceylon black tea leaves from the Court Lodge Estate in Nuwara Eliya on the island of Sri Lanka, along with full tea blossoms and white wine grapes from the Orange River Vineyard in South Africa, create an exquisite, light-colored cup with a fruity, floral profile. Infused with the essence of champagne, this blend is a true cup of celebration.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Premium Ceylon black tea leaves, white wine grapes, tea flowers, marigold petals, cornflowers and natural champagne and vanilla flavors.

Good, but not my favorite

This tea is good, but I will likely not reorder it. It definitely has a distinctive floral, almost soapy note. Once you add sweetener, it seems to cut the floral taste a bit. It's VERY strong smelling in the can, almost like grape Kool Aid! It's a nice blend but likely not a reorder for me.
How can you not love this!

If you did not like this tea the first time you brewed it, you likely steeped it too long. It's fragile but complex and if you don't oversteep, no more than 3 minutes, it's magnificent in both aroma and flavor. It does, however, get bitter quickly if it's allowed to soak, so don't. I have gone through 3 cans of it and will order more.

A delightful, tasty blend that seems marked for special occasions! I like it brewed strong with a splash of milk.

I just brewed up my first cup of this tea and was sorely disappointed. This is the strangest tasting tea I ever had, and I am going to have to throw the rest out.
Unique and Delicious

A fruit tea unlike any other fruit tea I've ever had. It seems crude to call it "grape tea" but that's essentially the effect, and it works incredibly well. There's a fantastic and complex balance here of a delicious sweet wine grapiness, a smooth black ceylon base, and light floral notes to balance it all out. I'm glad this is no longer being listed as "limited edition" because my family and I would hate to see it disappear!
