Queen of Blue Imperial
Royal Blue Tea's flagship product
Deep, elegant, invigorating
An instant classic
Crafted with nature's blessing
Royal Blue Tea is proud to present out flagship product, Queen of Blue. The leaves are Oriental Beauty, a much-loved luxury Taiwanese tea said to have been named by Queen Victoria in the age of The British Empire. The distinctive sweet taste and fruity fragrance of this popular tea is thanks to a little green insect called a planthopper. When the planthopper bites the young tea leaves, it starts a chemical process which gives this tea its distinctive gentle, sweet aroma. Once a year, in the summer months, the fresh insect-bitten leaves are carefully plucked by hand and processed to produce this precious tea.
Queen of Blue is available in four grades: deluxe, grand, imperial, and premium. The deluxe grade is served in the first-class cabin of all Japan Airlines(JAL) international flights and has won the Gold Quality Award at the Belgian Monde Selection for three consecutive years.
A deep, elegant taste and honey-like aroma
Queen of Blue has a sweet aroma reminiscent of fruit or honey and a gentle, refreshing taste, combined with a robust body similar to that of black tea, but without any bitterness or astringency. This well-balanced flavour makes Queen of Blue an ideal pairing for any meal.
