Version 2 – a bit of a shortfall on our normal Earl Grey w/ Mallow Flower so we created a clone. Very similar but also has some cornflower in it instead of mallow, a slightly different Indian base tea as well but for you Earl Grey fans, should be a great replacement until our next shipment arrives, quite similar.
Great for a morning pick-me-up, this strong tea with stimulating vapors, powerful flavors, and ample caffeine will grab your attention!
A well-loved classic, Earl Grey is arguably the most popular of all flavored teas. Bergamot oil comes from the peel of a small citrus cultivated mostly in Italy and lends a fantastic spicy-sour flavor as well as aromas which enliven the palate and sinuses. The blue mallow blossoms included in this special blend improve the color while also complimenting the bergamot with subtle lavender notes.
We recommend steeping this tea a little less than normal, as bitterness can interfere with the aromatics. It is traditionally served with a squeeze of lemon and a little sugar (not milk). But some like it with milk – try this special recipe for a “London Fog.”
Steeping Time – 2 Minutes
Water Temp – 212 F
Whole leaf black tea, blue and white cornflower petals and bergamot.
Michelle O. –
I started with Burman Coffee Traders 5 years ago, ordering our green coffee beans for roasting. Just recently, I decided to switch to tea for the health benefits and this Indian Earl Grey Blue Mallow Blossom was just the place to start. The aroma is absolutely amazing, and I start every day with a London Fog. Later in the day, I have to switch to a national name branded Earl Grey DECAFFEINATED tea bag just to decrease my caffeine intake. But I can say that the true depth and flavor of Earl Grey is found in this tea. I only wish it was available in a decaf version.
