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.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
A surprising delight
At first I found this Celebration Tea quite bitter, but when I reduced the water temperature to 200° and brewed less tea in eight ounces of water, what a delight! It's an elegant, exotic, sophisticated flavor reminiscent of an eighteenth-century ballroom with candles and chandeliers. A Mozart of black teas.
Limiting package sizes
I really like this tea. What happened to the 3.5 oz refill? I don't want to pay for another tin and don't want the huge bulk package. Guess I'll go over to Teavana to see what they have. Very disappointing.
Best tea ever
This was the best tea ever. Had to reorder the larger size, can't get enough of this flavor. Once you open the tin you can tell this is going to be wonderful.
When steeped correctly, this is a lovely black tea, with no bitterness, and just a hint of sweet already built in. The scent is also wonderful. It's a personal favorite of mine.
Worth the effort of looking hard for it
Love the taste, and you can taste the floral hints, only enough to please the palate, and not overwhelm. I thought myself very elegant when I first bought it, (it was actually for a celebration), brought it to work, and everyone loved it. They stopped selling it at my local specialty store, but I'm glad I found it online.
