The third tea, Sweet Jane Bennet, is a blend of green and black teas sweetened with notes of vanilla, imitating Jane’s “angelic sweetness.” And finally, the fourth tea, Longbourn Wedding, is a romantic white tea with champagne and rose flavors that make it perfect for any spouses to celebrate being forever Valentines.
