Scottish Afternoon Tea  
Hello everybody, I've got a question from a friend. I haven't been able to find anything on Google so far, so I thought I'd ask around.

When we were in England last (about two years ago), I bought a box of tea from the museum attached to Buckingham Palace. It was on sale, and the monies went for palace upkeep or some similar goal. Anyway, the tea was called Scottish Afternoon Tea and had a picture of Queen Mary on it, I think (you know, the Catholic one). Is that blend (Scottish Afternoon) a blend that is easily obtainable? It had a bit of bergamot in it, not as strong as Earl Grey or Lady Grey, and not as citrus-y as Prince of Wales. But it was subtle and nice, and I am almost through the box and wondered about being able to replace it. The individual bags don't have a tea blender/seller's name on them.

In an additional comment kazfeist mentioned that she thinks the tea's original venue was St. James Palace.

Have anybody heard of this before? I seem to recall having heard of it before and I also seem to recall having heard of a Queen Mary blend, but haven't been able to find any place where it's on sale. kazfeist is american, so I expect she'll be looking for some place where she could buy it online.
