Flavor: For those looking for an earl grey tea that has a big, bold bergamot flavor, you’ve met your match. Earl Grey French Blue fills the mouth with bright, citrusy notes and has a slight floral finish from the addition of vibrant blue cornflowers.
Drink this tea with: A slice of bittersweet chocolate cake topped with sweetened whipped cream spiked with grand marnier.
Cooking with tea: French tea, meet marmalade. The bright bergamot notes in this tea pair wonderfully with bitter orange marmalade. Substitute lightly brewed tea instead of half the water in a classic marmalade recipe.
Words from Mariage Frères tea house: “Graceful and sophisticated, this classic blend reinvents itself by pairing the fruity, zesty and lightly peppery notes of refined bergamot with the sweet-scented hint of cornflower.”
