Throughout history, there has been an association between royalty, lifestyle and tea. An example of tea and history. In 1662, King Charles II married the Portuguese princess, Catherine of Braganza. as an avid lover of tea she brought with her, as part of her dowry; a chest of China tea. She started serving it to aristocratic friends at Court. We can only imagine what these gatherings would have turned into had they not been able to enjoy a lightly and elegantly flavored Strawberry/Lemon tea. No wonder this tea is called Lady Londonderry.
