We don’t really need an excuse to drink tea, but realizing King Charles’s coronation will be televised for our viewing amusement bright and early on the morning of Saturday May 6, 2023 could only be a sign that a very special cuppa will be imminently required.

We are looking forward to much pageantry as we see His Majesty King Charles III crowned alongside The Queen Consort, so put up some DIY royal bunting and fortify yourself for a few hours of historic telly with this wonderfully rich Royal Tea Latte recipe that we think would be perfect for the occasion. It’s made with Murchie’s Coronation Blend, that highlights Darjeeling and Sri Lankan black teas. Not only is Darjeeling a known favourite of King Charles, it also boasts notes of muscatel grape, earning it the name “champagne of teas.” Could it be any more perfect? The Sri Lankan black tea in the blend adds a robust quality making it just right to stand up to the extra milk used in this tea latte recipe. Pinkies up!
