What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Love the bite
Love the bite of the ginger in this full-bodied breakfast tea. Just like Lord Grantham, gets your day going!
Please, please don't ever discontinue this choice tea. What a wonderful aroma and flavor. Nothing like it out there.
Needs to Be a Forever Edition!
I tend to prefer loose tea. This was given to me by a friend who knows I like Downton Abbey and tea, so I gave it a try. It is now on the top of my list of favorite teas. I am not a sophisticated enough taster to talk about flavor notes or subtle overtones of this or that, but I can tell you that I love this tea. Most likely because of the ginger, it is one of the few teas I can drink on an empty stomach in the morning that doesn't make me ill. When the limited edition time for this ends, if it doesn't make it into a regular collection, I will be very sad. Please relabel this as a regular, and if it gets renamed, please be very clear of the former name in marketing, so I don't miss out on it.
I went a little crazy at the Downton costume exhibit at Biltmore and bought more tea than I probably should have. But this morning I am very much enjoying the Breakfast Blend. The ginger brings this over the top; unique and with the right amount of zip to begin the day.
Too delicious to make a limited edition!
I received this tea as a gift from a friend who knew I loved Downton Abbey as much as I loved tea. The mix of black tea and ginger quickly became a favorite! The smell is outstanding. Everyone comments on how fantastic it smells when I make it at work. Please keep the tea available after the collector packaging is no longer available.
