Here is a Berry tea made up with Rose buds and Hibiscus called Pink Potion Tea. A real floral concoction!


 This Jasmine tea, (Jasmine posy) is a light and refeshing green tea with Jasmine petals.


 This flowering tea is called Jasmine Arch, these beautiful petals uncurl into a work of art when added to hot water. These are served in the Cocoa cafe or you can buy them as buds to serve at home.


 Also served in the cafe is Fentiman's Rose Lemonade. We love these bottles to keep, for putting flowers in!
