This tea is our Rare Tea Lady's (founder Henrietta Lovell) riff on a traditional Earl Grey; a more delicately herbaceous and distinctly lemon blend.

Instead of containing just black tea and the essential oil of bergamot that composes a traditional Earl Grey Tea - we’ve built up the lemon notes, not with more citrus but uniquely with delicious lemon herbs.

Rich yet elegant black tea from the Shire Highlands of Malawi blended with Italian Bergamot, Malawi Lemon Verbena and Sri Lankan Lemongrass.

Cost per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Smooth

A nice smooth cup of tea. And the lemon is never dominating. Hope that there will be a special tin for this. I will definately buy it again. Jesper Gammelgaard, Denmark

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion (without milk) use 90°C (194°F) water.

If you prefer milk, use 100°C (212°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 minute at 90°C (sans milk), and 2 - 3 minutes at 100°C (with milk).

Taste regularly to find your optimum time.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Tasting Notes

The bergamot is a subtle note rather than a deep perfume. Built on an elegant foundation of silky black tea, we have gently layered herbaceous lemon.

Flavours of lemon and fresh summer herbs; clean, bright and uplifting.

(This tea makes a wonderful base for a gin cocktail. Best hot extracted and rapidly shaken over ice with gin and a spot of sugar or honey.)

LEMON VERBENA

Robert "Chip" Kay

He would add a few leaves of fresh lemon verbena into his pot of black tea. Sadly Chip died in 2019 in his 90’s after a long life of tea. But his inspiration lives on, and the lemon verbena he loves. He helped set up small holder farmers in his community, mostly women with less than a hectare of land.
