Russian Earl Grey
Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Russian Earl Grey! A wonderful loose leaf Earl Grey tea spiced up with the addition of Thai Lemongrass and Spanish Oranges. We use a blend of high grown Ceylon Orange Pekoe Teas and China Black Teas from the Anhui Province. Traditionally in Russia sweet orange peel and herbs were added to soften and smooth the taste of the bergamot - we add Lemongrass leaves!
Type of Tea- A mixture of Black Teas from Sri Lanka and China with a blend of natural flavours
Grade- Orange Pekoe
Ingredients- Black tea combined with Orange Pieces, Lemongrass Leaves and Cornflower Petals to give this tea a lovely natural taste.
Brewing Guide- We recommend using 1 teaspoon of the leaf, but if you like a stronger tea, then you could use up to 1½. This tea tastes best with freshly boiled water (roughly 100 degrees) and left to infuse for 3 to 5 minutes. If you wanted your tea to be stronger, you can leave it for up to 7 minutes.
How to Serve- Best served Black. Depending on personal preference, you can add milk, sugar or honey.
Tasting Notes- The Lemon grass blended with the sweet Orange gives this tea a lovely citrus overtone with a beautiful mellow finish.
Colour in Cup- This cup of tea looks very inviting with its bright, golden colour with reddish tones.
Storage- In an airtight container away from other strong scents and heat. We would recommend using this tea within a year of purchasing.
Health Benefits: As well as giving the tea a beautiful flavour, the citrus from the Lemongrass can help you with clearing your head, noise and throat while keeping you calm and relaxed. Adding the cornflower gives it an extra boots of floral detoxification. A lovely tea to have while your a bit under the weather or just fancy a bit of a boost!
