Elderflower Earl Grey

Product Details

Earl Grey meets elderflower cordial…

Inspired by elderflower cordial sipped at the height of summer, we've blended a bright, crisp Ceylon tea with hedgerow elderberries and delicate white speckles of elderflower blossoms. Flavours of bergamot bring a fragrant quality to the cup and the subtlest suggestion of that traditional Earl Grey taste - lovely for those looking for something a little lighter at afternoon tea. Blending the taste of tradition with the pure, floral flavours of an English summer, this is a tea of Sunday cricket matches and gossip on the allotment.

This is the greatest taste of Earl Grey I ever had! The Earl Grey with light sweet smell makes the tea taste great. Very refreshing morning or afternoon flavour!

Origin

Sri Lanka

Known by the country’s original colonial name, Ceylon, Sri Lankan tea is one of the world’s most popular single origin varieties. However, its success is one of those surprisingly flukes of history. Coffee plantations were originally the country’s main economic resource and it wasn’t until the 1860s that the Scottish pioneer James Taylor planted the first tea bush. He wasn’t having much luck, but when a sudden blight devastated the coffee plantations the Sri Lankan tea industry took centre stage. The tea’s clean, brisk taste proved a real hit at the London tea auctions and the British have never looked back…

A note from Whittard

“I’m a bit of a traditionalist, so I tend to go for classic black tea blends like Earl Grey, or single origin varieties like Ceylon or Assam. Lapsang Souchong is a treat with hot cross buns.”
