Duchess of Bedford

This rich and velvety blend of raspberries and rose petals meets with stately Ceylon tea leaves for the very Grande Dame of brews. Named for the originator of British Afternoon Tea, a splash of milk will not go amiss, and a gentle stir of brown sugar enriches the subtlety of its raspberry tones.
