Betsy Ross White Description:
Inspired by Betsy Ross and her creation of the American flag, Betsy Ross White is a lively combination of white tea with deep blue elderberries, red raspberry druplets, and stunningly blue cornflowers. The combination mirrors the colors of our flag with the elderberries and raspberries being native to America and blue cornflower, also known as Bachelor's Button, originating in Europe before migrating to the United States. Bachelor's Button is now common in every state but Alaska and is also a common addition to many teas. This tea features a raspberry aroma and tastes of raspberry with a sweet finish of elderberry.
