The idea of mixing Earl Grey tea with cornflower will no doubt raise eyebrows for many tea aficionados. Their eyes will widen further still when they discover that our Earl Grey with Cornflower tea is blended from different south China teas – Assam and Darjeeling. Any concern, however, will rapidly dissipate once they’ve sampled a cup and discovered the calming fragrance and refreshing flavour.
This tea is perfect for traditional Earl Grey lovers who are ready to explore something slightly more adventurous. The familiarity of Earl Grey will remain yet infused with the new taste and smell sensations of tea leaves harvested from the distant plantations of the Far East combined with the warming taste of cornflower.
While traditionally a morning tipple, our Earl Grey with Cornflower tea is perfect for taking time out of the day to relax in the afternoon or evening. Whatever the time of serving, we recommend allowing the tea leaves to brew for 3-5 minutes before adding to a cup with boiling water.
