Blue Lady

Description


This beautiful China black tea is infused with the pure oil of grapefruit creating a light and fragrant brew. As soon as the water hits the leaves the aroma of grapefruit is released and the leaves unfold to expose the pretty marigold and mallow flowers. Pure oil is sprayed onto the leaf during the drying process creating a flavour which is subtle and in perfect balance with the tea.

Earl Grey Loose Leaf

Earl Grey Loose Leaf

Description


One of the best known flavoured teas, our Earl Grey is a large leaf blend of black China teas enhanced with oil from the citrus fruit bergamot. Scenting the leaf with natural oils of Bergamot fruit gives this delicate tea a refreshing lemon orange aroma and flavour.

Beautiful just as it is or with a slice of lemon. However, many enjoy a drop of milk.
