Emma’s Perfect Match tea
An elegant, youthful green tea is full of romance, especially with the addition of pink roses. This blend is made even sweeter with real strawberries from Mr. Knightley’s garden. Emma, at last, finds the perfect match and we celebrate with this aromatic and delicious blend! *China green tea, roses, strawberry, dried fruits assorted, rhubarb and hibiscus and natural flavoring.
Wishing Miss Austen’s fans a wonderful day!
