I wish I could adequately convey to you the wonderful aroma that greets one on opening a packet of Kentish Lavender Grey.
Loose leaf tea is always more flavoursome than tea bags and this particular blend of Sri Lankan black tea, lavender flowers (Lavandula angustifolia) and natural oil of bergamot takes Earl Grey tea to new heights.
Kentish Lavender Grey is full-bodied, has a wonderful nose, and is smooth-tasting with a good balance between the lavender and bergamot. It is equally enjoyable with or without milk and is a perfect drink to enjoy at one’s leisure. I found a patch of sun in the garden in which to sip my tea slowly while watching birds. While lavender-flavoured biscuits would be a fine accompaniment – I made do with buttery shortbread to nibble.
