Happy National Tea Day (Sunday 21st April 2019)
This luxurious fragrant tea is jam-packed with surprises – How bloomin’ marvellous! So, if you wish to be “tickled pink” by Miss Windsor - Oh, I say! whilst you relax on a “bed of roses”, as you gaze upon the globe through “rose-tinted glasses” – then please do join Miss Windsor for a scent-sational sup on this exquisite blend of Miles Lavender Limeflower & Rose Tea!
Oh, and this particular blend is the perfect warm refreshment to be served during a spot of afternoon tea and must be enjoyed with a slice or two of Mrs Beeton’s Rose & Lime Saucer Cake – How scrumptious!
Darlings, for those who have not had the pleasure of this superior brand of tea before now, then may I introduce Miles Tea of Porlock, Somerset - merchants of the finest tea and coffee from the West-Country. Established in 1888 and was previously known as Henry Miles & Co, then in 1971, Mr D J Miles purchased the business from his grandfather, whom since then, and now at the ripe and ravishing age of 87 years old is still tea tasting and buying three days per week – How spiffing!
Mrs Simkins and I have joined together in ‘matrimony’ – Ha, ha, got you there! Of course, I meant to say the beauteous Meghan (real name: Rachel!) and dashing Harry (real name: Henry!) exchanged vows on Saturday 19th May 2018 and became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – curtesy, please! Indeed, I wish them every happiness in their covenant of LOVE.
Moving on gracefully - to my spiffing collaboration with Mrs Simkins! You see, to complement her scrumptious Lemon and Elderflower Butterfly Cakes, which tastefully mirror the married couple’s glorious wedding cake of lemon and elderflower sponge decorated with Swiss meringue. I sourced an extra special tea created by Fortnum and Mason of London – The Wedding Bouquet Blend – which commemorates the marriage of Miss Windsor’s royal counterparts!
Before I saturate your taste-buds with my ‘tea-tastic’ review about Miles Berry Berry Loose Leaf Tea - merchants of the finest tea and coffee from the West-Country since 1888 - I wish to share a few riveting details about how I spent my first ever British National Tea Day.
Well, I dare say, it was a real blast! In fact, it was a joint celebration of the regal and tea drinking kind, as our darling sovereign - Queen Elizabeth II turned 92 years old – GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!
You see, darlings, the queen has been sipping tea from a cup and saucer of the ‘priceless’ variety for decades upon decades, but one wonders what brand of tea does she actually favour? So, if you have an ‘inkling’ of a clue, please do let me know – Much obliged!
Following my frightfully fabulous scone munching, tea tasting experience at Mr Miles Tearooms, Taunton, Somerset; I became rather enamoured with Miles West-Country Original Blend Tea. But I dare say, although I’m a West-Country lass at heart, my new ‘amour’ was a match made in heaven! Thus, this heavenly taste sensation is now part of my daily tea break routine – “Oh, jolly good,” I hear you utter!
