Tasting Notes: Lush, dark amber liquor with creamy vanilla, bright bergamot, and well-structured tannin.
This remarkable combination of hand blended, organically produced black tea, cornflowers, and natural oil of bergamot with a touch of French vanilla is our take on the Earl Grey Creme style of tea. Perfectly balanced tannins combine with a naturally sweet liquor and creamy mouth-feel to create a blend that is sure to become a household favorite. Add a little bit of our Acacia or Sourwood honey to enhance the subtle vanilla notes!
Organically Produced Ingredients: Organic Black Tea, Organic Natural Oil of Bergamot, Organic Cornflowers, Organic Natural Flavors
Scented teas should be brewed according to the base tea leaves. White and green scented teas may be brewed at 185 degrees for 3 minutes. Black scented teas may be brewed at 205 degrees for 3-5 minutes. We recommend to brew chai teas at 205 degrees for 5-7 minutes to yield a strong cup that will hold nicely with honey and milk.
What is Scented Tea?
Blended or scented tea, as opposed to herbal tea, is based upon the leaf of the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Other ingredients such as flowers, dried fruits, and essential oils are then added to achieve the desired flavor.
Health Benefits of Scented Tea
Congratulations, if you are drinking tea, you have already chosen an incredible, healthful beverage. Tea is considered in many cultures to have medicinal properties. All tea comes from the same plant family, camellia sinensis and therefore all types and styles contain the same components that contribute to significant health benefits. Influence of the varietal, growing conditions, production techniques and your own brewing practices play a role in the antioxidant and caffeine levels in your cup. Blended and scented teas are no exception. So enjoy a cup of tea, any tea, and know that you are drinking health.
