How we like it
Use freshly drawn boiled water. Infuse one tea measure per pot (or 1 x teaspoon per mug) and brew for 2-5 minutes… great with or without milk!
Why not try our London Fog recipe with this tea? This is a great 'pick-me-up'. Bergamot has a natural boosting effect on your mood, so brilliant for a grey, winter day! It's really simple to make at home and tastes too good! A great way to surprise any visitors this Christmas!
What you'll need
2 tsp Earl Grey Blue Flower
1/2 cup of boiling water
1 cup of milk (regular/almond/ coconut)
1tsp Vanilla Syrup or Vanilla Extract
1.Bring water to the boil and steep the tea for 5 minutes in a half cup of hot water. Then strain the tea leaves out.
2. While you're waiting for the tea to steep, set a small saucepan of milk on the hob over medium heat. Don't allow it to boil. Whisk the milk for about 5 minutes, until it's hot and frothy "for a nice fog-like effect". We used the milk frother on our coffee machine but heating the milk on the hob will have a similar effect.
3. Next, add a half cup of milk to the tea and stir in your vanilla syrup/ extract and enjoy!
Remember the little bag of tea inside each box may look like plastic but it's actually a material called Natureflex which can be disposed of in your home food waste bin or home composting. And don't forget to recycle your cardboard boxes! Did you know we have gone plastic free with our new packaging too? Read more here!
