Downton Abbey® Bates' Brambleberry Tea
This bold yet smooth premium black tea is perfectly coupled with a handful of summer fruit – blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. A touch of sweetness to this cup will bring out the full, ripe flavor. A casual refreshment served hot or over ice with biscuits or sandwiches.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
My favorite fruity tea
First off, I'd like to mention that I hope we see this Limited tea stick around and that I've love a refill option for my tin! (And a loose leaf version, but let's start with the basics.) Smell: Amazing. The bags themselves smell great and I enjoy how it transfers to the brewing process. It's an enjoyable sense from start to finish. Taste: I love this tea hot. I love this tea cold. I just plain love this tea. There was no additional sweetener (which I find generally overpowering, personally) and it doesn't need it. It's the perfect combination of fruity and light for the spring/summer seasons.
Perfect as Iced Tea
I didn't like this one by the cup in the morning, I found I LOVE it by the pitcher over ice. It does compare well to Blackberry Sage.
Perfect Spring and Summer Tea
While I enjoy many different teas, the BlackBerry Sage has been my "gotta have it on a daily basis" tea for several years now. I have to say, Bates Brambleberry tea is equally delicious. It doesn't have the refreshing sage notes, but the berry flavors are divine. It's like drinking a cup of springtime. Very fruity, not too floral and not sickly sweet. I really hope this tea is here to stay.
This tea has become my absolute favorite! It is definitely the best Downton tea (with the exception of the Christmas blend, which I haven't tried yet). I love waking up to this tea each morning. It gives me something to look forward to. I hope they continue selling this, re-labeled, after the limited time it's available as a Downton tea.
Delicious berry flavors
This is very good tea. I wish it came in loose leaf and that it wasn't a limited edition!
