Lavender Earl Grey Tea, Hand Blended Loose Leaf
My lavender earl grey tea is a modern update to the old classic- lavender and vanilla bean are blended with dark full leaves of black tea to produce a deeper, more complex flavor but with the smooth finish and familiar tastes of bergamot from the original. Indigo blue cornflower petals and lavender buds add to its appealing look and taste, 2 ounces. Many flavors available; please see the list below and the last photo for all of my flavors, and note too that some flavors come in 1 ounce packs.
STEEPING SUGGESTIONS: 1 ½ teaspoon tea (2 grams) 8 oz. boiling (212 degrees) water Steep for 3 1/2-4 minutes * * The strength and flavor of tea is a personal experience. If you prefer a stronger cup, I suggest using more tea rather than a longer steeping time to minimize the possibility of a bitter flavor.
