seeking orange blossom tea

Many years ago, I enjoyed Rose Brand: Orange Blossom Tea. I bought it in Montreal. It came in a Twinings style tin from a London company called James Ashby and Sons. It was a blended tea with orange blossoms and flavouring. No orange peel. No spices.
A friend tried to find the company 14 years ago but they had moved.
The store in Montreal is also long gone.
Any ideas?

Hi :D
What you want is called Osmanthus tea. It is black tea scented with orange blossoms. You might be able to get it here. They definitely have it at Holy Mountain Teas (put in google "Holy Mountain Tea") and they will come up. Hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Stephenie

Hi, I used to work for james ashby and sons in london, they got bought out by a large company called Pearce duff, must have been about 1982 they carried on using the name, Ashby's of London, you might find the tea under that.
