Cream Earl Grey has a taste that’s smooth with vanilla overtones that stand out above the premium bergamot flavour – the signature taste of Earl Grey. This is a tea that would complement a royal meal or any another aristocratic occasion for that matter! One has to assume that Charles Grey himself (1764-1845) would have strongly approved of this delicacy.
What type of tea do we use, how do we flavour the tea and why do we use natural flavours?
First… Our suppliers only use high grown teas from the top growing regions of Sri Lanka. These high-grown districts produce flavourful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavour notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery colour and, most importantly – perfect for use as the base tea of our flavoured teas.
Second… They use cold pressed oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat.
Third… We specify natural flavours. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavours do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavoured tea is to use overpowering artificial flavours, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavours do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavours tend to be somewhat ‘soft‘ and the flavours slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavoured teas.
