Harrods Blend No. 49 Tea

While we were in London, England, we spent an afternoon at Harrods, the World's most famous department store. Not only does Harrods provide a million square feet of shopping, but the architecture of the building is lit up with 11,500 lights at night.

The Food Halls, which have a wide selection and amazing mosaic tile work, is where I found several different types of coffee and teas to bring home. In one of the assortments was Harrods Blend No. 49 Tea. I fell in love with this Tea, and now save my small stash for special moments. Apparently Blend No. 49 was created to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of their Knightsbridge store, which opened in 1849, thus the Number 49. It's primarily a blend of Indian Darjeeling Teas and has beautiful flavor.

Harrods Blend No. 49 is my favorite Tea. What is yours?

  3. Oooh Harrod's sounds wonderful! I'm usually more of a coffee person, but when I drink tea I love sweet, berry teas.
