The Metropolitan Tea Company Ltd. - Versailles Lavender Earl Grey

Date Rated: October 2005

Ingredients: None given. (French #1 super blue lavender and Earl Grey)

Tea format: Loose tea.

Where to get it: The Metropolitan Tea Company was kind enough to send this tea to me. Since they are a wholesale tea supplier, you can learn about them at their web site, but you'll have to order at Camille's Tea.

Recommended Preparation: Steep 2 (not rounded) teaspoons of loose tea for 5 minutes. (10 oz cup.)

Comments: This is a medium-bodied Earl Grey derivative with no astringency. The lavender in this one overpowers the bergamot. A nice tea, but the base blend is a little flat.
