Our Queen Mary tea is inspired by One of the daily rituals was for the passengers on board the Queen Mary Ocean Liner. They would be given an afternoon cup of tea and it is said that drinking tea was comforting and calmed the travellers before the chill of the night air. Our Queen Mary Tea is a blend of teas from Assam, the Nilgiri Hills of South India, the Dimbula District of Sri Lanka and the Nandi Highlands of Kenya commemorating those days and is a wonderful tea to drink if you are sitting on the beach or just at your kitchen table.
