The explanatory blurb on the box declares that
This blend of seasonal quality tea was specially created for afternoon tea at The Empress. The Assam component (2nd flush June production) gives a thick malty and full bodied character; the Kenya component (Kiambu region, January production) gives floral-like flavour and a golden coppery infusion; the South Indian component (Nilgiri Mountains, January production) gives superb fruity and sprightly flavour with a lovely finish; the Ceylon (Dimbula region, January production) gives and airy almost piquant flavour that opens the blend; and the China (Anhui province, April production) gives a burgundy depth with light oaky notes. Truly one of the world's great teas!
The box includes 10 two-cup bags. Plus, given that The Empress was built by the Canadian Pacific Railway as one in its chain of Grand Railway Hotels, I'm also including a tacky little steam train toy for the heck of it!
