Intro to Earl Grey Tea
You might have heard about Earl Grey tea before, as it is somewhat of a popular tea. However, in the past Earl Grey tea was generally just a tea with some bergamot flavoring added to it, whether it was essential oil or flavoring was up to the creator of that blend. However, since tea has really got a boost in the recent years there has been an expansion of the Earl Grey teas that are offered. Below are a couple different variations that we have and some cool descriptions of what the tea is like.
Our favorite Earl Grey Tea
The first one that I am really digging right now is the creamy earl grey. You might ask yourself what exactly creamy earl grey is, and it is pretty much exactly how it sounds and that is classic earl grey with a bit of creaminess added. In this particular blend you can see some beautiful blue cornflowers that have been added to accent the visual appeal, and some additional flavors for the black tea base. Along with the traditional bergamot flavor you will find sweet and subtle hints of vanilla and cream. These additional flavors add a depth to the tea that is just amazing.
The next type of new earl grey that has bust onto the market is a personal favorite of mine, which is the earl grey green which is the typical flavor you recall when you think of earl grey, on a green tea base. This combination provides a lighter tea brew and is great for the afternoon when you are starting to wind down. With this blend you might just find your new addition to the tea collection. I know that the first time I enjoyed this mix I was blown away as it satisfied my craving for Earl Grey, all while keeping it on the lighter side.Here is a nice picture of the earl grey green that we offer :
The final earl grey that we will go over will be our lovely lavender earl grey which is a perfect addition to any true earl grey lovers mix! This mix blends the traditional earl grey with some really nice lavender pieces and flavors, which result in an amazing calming affect. The tea is both visually amazing and provides a brew and aroma that cannot be match. Take a look for yourself, and you might instantly mellow out, so try not to stare for too long:
So there you have it, a couple of our amazing Earl Grey blends to take a look at and possibly sample.
