Earl Grey Lavender | Black Tea
This twist on a classic Earl Grey balances the floral qualities of lavender with the citrus tang of bergamot. The cup is aromatic with a pronounced silkiness.
Earl Grey tea is a very aromatic black tea blend, originally made with Chinese black tea and oil of bergamot. Bergamot is a citrus fruit (an obscure branch of the orange family) grown around the Mediterranean. Bergamot is rarely eaten fresh (very bitter), but is wonderfully aromatic with a citrus tang.
