Tea is a wonderful big world full of flavours and beautiful aromas. Our blends are made to be explored.
The Royal Earl
The Earl Grey, gentleman of the tea world, is both familiar and welcoming. Our hand crafted version of this classic blend uses the finest 100% organic and biodynamic Ceylon tea from the Koslanda Tea Estate, Sri Lanka. Scented with natural bergamot oil and sprinkled with orange segments. Blue cornflowers accent the rich black leaves and the vibrant amber hued- brew produces a fragrant yet refreshing finish of citrus. It’s royally good!
