Adding to its range of teas available in the United States, The East India Co. Fine Foods introduced Royal Flush Black Tea in select markets. The loose-leaf tea is available in 3.25-ounce canisters at select Neimen Marcus stores throughout the country with a suggested retail price of $24. The tea is harvested from bushes propagated from the original bush planted by Prince Philip during his visit in 1954, the company says. The orange pekoe grows at high altitudes in the Pedro Estate of Nuwara Eliya and is bright, medium-bodied and delicate, it adds.
