Whittard of Chelsea Queen of Hearts Tea and Biscuits
National Tea Day in the UK was on April 21st, which also happens to fall on the Queen’s birthday. In honor of the occasion I celebrated with one of my favorite teas, Whittard of Chelsea’s English Rose Tea, paired with their “Queen of Hearts” Strawberry Biscuits. The tea & biscuit tins couldn’t have been any cuter. Featuring the theme of the “Queen of Hearts” from Alice in Wonderland, these little heart-shaped biscuits had a wonderful strawberry flavor that paired well with the floral tea.
This British company’s teas are incredibly popular all over the world. I first had this tea while I was living in Japan. I absolutely fell in love with this black tea blend, which gets much of its majestic rose flavor from the whole dried rosebuds strewn throughout the tea leaves.
I’m glad that I was able to celebrate National Tea Day with these lovely tea and biscuits, which brought a lot of British elegance to my in-home afternoon tea experience right here in Portland, Oregon.
