  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

    Tea Type Steeping Temperature Steeping Time
    White Tea  170-185 F 1-3 minutes
    Green Tea 170-185 F 2-3 minutes
    Oolong Tea 170-190 F 2-3 minutes
    Black Tea 200-212 F 3-5 minutes
    Tisanes 212 F 4-7 minutes

       Fruit and herbal teas are also referred to as tisanes.

We started blending this tea in our shop, because so many people were requesting it.  It's a base of  Earl Grey Supreme, mixed with some of our French lavender.  The two combined create a sophisticated European flavor, and a very relaxing aroma.  The bright purple lavender stands out well against the black tea both in color, and in its distinctive flavor.  The bergamot bridges the gap.  It's citrus flavor blends the lavender and black tea into a single experience.  

Base leaf: Black tea.

Health properties: Anti-oxidant properties, natural calming.

Flavor strength: Moderate. Primary collection is lemony bergamot, relaxing Lavender over black tea.

Caffeine: Moderate.

Good tea

I am a tea drinker and could not find my regular earl gray so came to this website to find Earl Grey with lavender and my normal peppermint - love them both Rob did a great job getting them out to me quickly and discounting my order as well thanks so much

So glad you found some teas you like! If you would like to try others, may we suggest Earl Grey Supreme and Moroccan Mint? They are pretty excellent too!
Absolutely Love this Tea!

This tea is one of the best that I've had - some of the best Earl Grey flavors with a hint of the unique sweetness of lavender. I love to have the tea in the afternoon (black or with a smidgen of sugar) as a quick pick-me-up of comfort.

Comforting is the perfect word to describe Earl Grey with Lavender. Thanks for your appraisal of this fantastic tea!
Calming and yummy

This is one of my favorite teas. The taste and quality is excellent. I enjoy it with a little cream and honey or sugar (yum!!!).

The Earl Grey with Lavender has quickly become one of our most popular teas during this exceptionally cold winter season. May you continue to enjoy each soothing sip!
Relaxing tea

I really love this tea with a sweetner and half and half! The tea itself is very relaxing, I think in part, due to the lavender that you smell and taste in the tea. Perfect for a cold winter day and is better than other Lavender teas that I have tried. BTW, I left mine in the car for a while and it became cold and I still liked it.

Thanks Laurie for letting us know about your experience with Earl Grey with Lavender. We can just imagine how it would taste cold with half and half. Yum!
