I also really appreciate each tea listing. It has a nice picture that I find very accurate, a review from a customer and a short but reliable description - with a link to a much more detailed description. When I find a tea I like, I click this link and suddenly I find a great amount of information : Country of Origin, Region, Shipping Port, Grade, Altitude, and lots more! They also include detailed information about the tea and brewing instructions.
It was fun to read about this Queen Mary Tea. Named after the famous ocean liner the "Queen Mary", this tea embraces all of the elegance and romance that encircles the history of this great ship. I encourage you to visit the website to read the history of the Queen Mary, once known as the worlds largest and fastest ocean liner. She served as a troop carrier in WWII and Culinary Teas has designed this tea with her great history and stateliness in mind!
Queen Mary Tea is an unusually blend of Assam,Colombo, Mombasa teas. These teas come from ndia, Sri Lanka, Kenya. What a fun blend of black teas!

This is a perfect breakfast tea. I found that if you prefer a lighter tea, you can steep it for 3-5 minutes, but if you want a stronger tea, you can use a bit more tea and steep it as long as 7 minutes without it getting bitter.
This tea is one of the best black blend I've tasted and I'm thrilled to have found it.
