I found this on sale at the Mills Mansion / Staatsburgh State Historic Site in Rhinebeck, NY, which is the only place you can buy it. It appears to have an inexpensive Chinese black tea base, which is flavored with apricot, red cornflowers, hazelnut, nutmeg, and something called "cinnamon spice." This is floral and snooty, and I totally respect this tea because it is EXACTLY the kind of tea I picture a bunch of rich people sipping after dinner on a pleasant day in 1911. The mansion has a large dining room table that is beautifully arranged, and it is not hard to imagine a butler coming around with a pot of this tea for Mrs. Mills and her lady friends.
