Earl Grey Citrus Provence
We crafted our Earl Grey Citrus Provence as an homage to the long history of variations on the classic Earl Grey. We blended an Earl Grey Provence, but with so many Provence versions available, we wanted to accentuate the lemony side of the Bergamot flavor, while allowing the lavender to still come through. We added orange to the blend, balancing it against the bergamot and lavender to create just enough of the citrusy nuances to come through, but not so much to dominate. The result is a delightful cup of tea, reminiscent of several Earl Greys we sipped while in Paris.
Think of the beautiful lavender fields in the Provence region of France. The heady scent dancing off your nose as the citrusy bergamot comes to the surface, while the orange notes peek through. Now think of sipping a cup of the wonderful tea, while nibbling on a Madeleine Tea Cake, and gazing upon the grape vineyards for which the Provence region is also known.
Now that you have it in your mind, you need to try a cup yourself and invoke these images yourself. Be sure to invite several Earl Grey-loving sippers to enjoy the experience with you.
