HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II PLATINUM JUBILEE 1952 – 2022

A delightful addition to our Signature Tea Collection, with a platinum twist to mark the occasion of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s historic 70-year reign, and the only British monarch in history to reach this anniversary.

Our Platinum Blend will take you on a sensory journey through the luscious hills and the lowlands of Sri Lanka, with an exclusive tea that celebrates Her Majesty and her love for Sri Lanka. Just five months after her coronation and accompanied by her husband, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, she embarked upon her first ‘World Tour’. The six month visit through the Commonwealth Nations included an eleven day trip to Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, where Prince Philip planted a ceremonial tea bush commemorating their visit.

Rare platinum-tipped lowland teas picked on the edge of the southern Singharaja rainforest and delicate high grown leaves from the Nuwara Eliya region in the island’s centre produce a unique cup – elegant and nuanced while remaining robust and full of character, with a rich sweetness and delicate notes of caramel in the finish.

A black tea to savour and treasure. Matches beautifully with our Royal Flush Caddy released to celebrate HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

Flavour Profile

Sri Lanka, although a tiny island, has a high degree of diversity in its geography and climate that continues to amaze us with its range of taste and aromatic nuances within its tea. Our Platinum Blend features a two carefully selected single origin black teas from two very different terroirs, that offer unique characters and flavours.

In 1840 the first tea estate was established under the supervision of The East India Company in the Nuwara Eliya region in the island’s centre, a landscape with blue sky and beautiful misty mountains as the background, tea estates on the slopes of the luscious hills, and water falls cascading. A region which still produces some of the finest Ceylon teas today. From the high altitudes of the Pedro Tea Estate in Nuwara Eliya, Orange Pekoe provides the bright and delicate floral notes.

From the Lumbini Tea Estate 100km away, on the edge of the southern Singharaja rainforest, the combination of temperature, weather and soil allow the natural characteristics of this rare platinum-tipped lowland tea to shine through, developing an exquisite black tea with complex notes of caramel and a sweetness unlike any other.

With decades of experience and a rare skill level, these teas are expertly blended by our Tea Master to produce a exceptional cup – elegant and nuanced whilst remaining robust and full of character.
