Eight Bells

$15.00 CAD for 125g


Admiral Grey’s afternoon favourite combining Earl Grey, vanilla and a hint of passion fruit. How better to end the watch?

Unlike civil clock bells, the strikes of a ship’s bell do not accord to the number of the hour. Instead, there are eight bells, one for each half-hour of a four-hour watch. In the age of sailing, watches were timed with a 30-minute hourglass. Bells would be struck every time the glass was turned, and in a pattern of pairs for easier counting, with any odd bells at the end of the sequence.
