Throughout history there has always been an association between  royalty, lifestyle and tea. For example, tea's fate in Britain took a  turn in 1662 when King Charles II married the Portuguese princess,  Catherine of Braganza. Britain's new queen was a confirmed tea drinker  long before she arrived for her wedding. As part of her dowry, she  brought with her a chest of Chinese tea. Soon, she began serving it to  her aristocratic friends at Court. As word of the new beverage spread,  more and more people wished to try it for themselves.

Ladies  enjoyed tea at home, while gentlemen often drank their tea in the coffee  houses that had been established in the City of London. Tea consumption  progressed further and over time it became very fashionable in London  to have afternoon tea. At these gatherings dainty sandwiches and  delicate cakes were served. We can only imagine what these gatherings  would have turned into had they been able to enjoy a lightly and  elegantly flavored Strawberry Lemon tea. No wonder this tea is called  Lady Londonderry.
