The Sapphire Jubilee Blend
Created in honour of the anniversary of 65 years on the throne for Queen Elizabeth II; Tea Palace created the Sapphire Anniversary Blend to mark the occasion.
Sapphire Anniversary Blend is a carefully crafted combination of the finest Chinese black tea leaves, vibrant sapphire-blue cornflower petals and bergamot oil pressed from specially selected bergamot citrus fruits for an elegant and aromatic infusion.
When steeped, a bronze liquor with clear citrus aromas is revealed. Very characterful and full-bodied, this blend gives additional depth to the distinct flavour of bergamot whilst finishing the cup with gentle grape undertones.
Place one teaspoon per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 4 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling. May be enjoyed with milk or lemon to taste.

The caffeine in black tea sharpens mental focus and concentration, and the trace element fluoride inhibits tooth decay. Black tea also contains abundant tannins which have a soothing anti-inflammatory effect on the digestive tract.
One cup of black or green tea has more antioxidant power than a serving of broccoli, carrots or spinach. (Prevention, 1998)
Black tea improves cardiac blood flow and coronary function and also improves endothelial function in the heard which improves vascular function. (Dr Renold Sebold, The Truth About Tea & Health part 1)
