"Keemun tea is sourced from the Anhui province in China"
Lavender has long been valued for its fragrance and medicinal values and centuries ago, lavender flowers were strewn on floors to keep rooms freshly scented.
The Keemun tea is sourced from the Anhui province in China and is one of the finest quality black teas available.
The liquor delivers a deep copper colour, whilst the lavender adds a soothing and relaxing aroma.

How you make your Signature Earl Grey is very important to get the best out of this fine tea, so here are our tips:
- Use freshly drawn cold water
- Use water at a “rolling boil” (100?C)
- For best results – use a teapot! Use 1 teaspoon of tea per person (“one for the pot” isn’t needed!) or for convenience in an individual cup with a strainer
- Steep for 3 to 5 minutes (or to your taste)
- This light, delicately citrus tea is best drunk with a slice of lemon or with just a touch of milk
- … and for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!
"Exclusively blended by our Twinings Master Blenders"
Black tea (like green tea) comes from the Camellia Sinensis. Here's a brief guide on how black tea arrives in your favourite cup...
- After plucking (and a sort & clean),
the leaves are laid on drying trays and withered
- The leaves are then rolled or cut
- Broken leaves are laid out and a heady mixture of warm air, aromatic juices, bacteria and enzymes leads to fermentation
- Fermentation is stopped by firing when the leaves reach the right brown colour depending on the region
- The leaves turn black as they dry
... and finally, are sorted or graded by size
- Black tea from Keemun, China
- Lavender flowers
- Bergamot flavouring
THIS IS THE BEST EARL GREY TEA BUT WHERE ARE THE TEA BAGS IN THE SAME RANGE?
I love this, nothing compares to this, and I have tried a lot of earl grey tea, but where are the silk tea bags with this tea?
I first discovered this blend at a Cafe Jest, it's amazing! Haven't been able to find it in the shops, but now it"s back to buy on line
A wonderful, aromatic tea which goes well at any time of day.
