The Countess - Lavender Earl Grey
Our take on Lady Grey is a smooth, mellow Earl Grey with wild French lavender, a bit of South African rooibos, and just a touch of French vanilla to add a touch of creaminess. You can add milk to it, but you really don't need to.
The Countess also makes a wonderful tea latte. We like it with vanilla soy milk.
- Use 7g (≈1 tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
- Use boiling (100°C/212°F) water
- Steep for 3 minutes, strain leaves, and enjoy!
- Like milk in your tea? Steep an extra minute!
- Too strong? Take off a minute, or use 5g of leaf instead!
- Too light? Kick it up another minute, or use 10g of leaf instead!

I love this tea. I'm an Earl Grey fan to begin with but adding lavender makes this a special treat.
