Lady Londonderry tea review (#26)

Flavored black tea
Margaret's Fine Imports
$3.50/2 oz

Ingredients: Luxury black tea, freeze-dried strawberry, lemon balm, calendula and sunflower petals, natural flavors.

The interwebs has attributed Lady Londonderry as Princess Diana's favorite tea. I wouldn't be surprised if she loved it! Named after society hostess Edith Vane-Tempest-Stewart, Marchioness of Londonderry, the tea evokes graceful propriety. It's calm, sophisticated, delicate.

The black tea is soft and the strawberry and lemon flavors are  refreshing. It has a delicious scent pre-steeping and also from the hot cup.

I love it as an afternoon tea with milk or honey, but it's also great iced because of the fruit flavor! Don't oversteep; it's a light tea.

Pink-ish and yellow pieces... you can see the strawberry is more pink when I bought it (below).

My next review is on an AWESOME fall tea for Thanksgiving. It's really unusual!
