Colonial Williamsburg West Indies Citrus Tea
Colonial Williamsburg fine teas are specially blended for us, and include varieties that delighted tea enthusiasts in the 18th century as much as they do tea connoisseurs today.
West Indies Citrus is a caffeine-free citrus herbal tea blend. This loose blend of orange peel, lemongrass, and rosehips is beautifully packaged in a 3 oz canister in Charleston, South Carolina by the Oliver Pluff Company exclusively for Colonial Williamsburg. Includes brewing tips and historical notes.
Orange, citron, lemon, lime, and pummelo trees were carried to the islands of the "West Indies" as early as the voyages of Columbus. Citrus trees were established in the American colonies by 1565 at St. Augustine and in coastal South Carolina.
