Few hours in life are more agreeable than the British ceremony known as afternoon tea. Our Afternoon Earl Grey is distinguished by its classic bergamot taste combined with the gentlest fragrance of blue cornflowers. An elegant blend, it evokes an era of fine china and leisurely conversation, when the ceremony of teatime was an unhurried pleasure.

Brew a perfect cup
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
I tried several blends before this one and and this is superb. I've bought it for years now.
I love the bergamot without it being too overpowering or tasting like" fairy liquid".
The large blue cornflowers are a delightful addition. I drink it with milk. It's always refreshing. Make a pot, sit back and enjoy!
When I was in London this autumn, I wanted to buy some Afternoon Blend, but it was currently out of stock. The staff recommended this one as a suitable substitute, so I gave it a try. And I'm really glad I did.
This tea is close enough to the Afternoon Blend I had wanted, so I really don't feel like having got stuck with a second-best option.
In fact it's a bit like meeting an old friend, who's changed slightly but is still amiable.
The tea tastes similar enough to have fond memories of the Afternoon Blend, yet it's just different enough to be more than a second-best replacement for a favourite tea. That's to say it's a fine and tasty tea in its own right and will have a place in my range of teas.
This is one of the best Earl Grey teas I have had, and I have had quite a few.
Every time I drink afternoon earl
grey, I feel relaxed and refreshed.
This is my top favorite tea.
I've absolutely enjoyed every single cup I have drank of this tea.
It's not strong but at the same time you get a very defined taste of earl grey. The blue cornflowers are perfect at this.
I knew about this tea in London but... when I bought it here it was so much better than I remembered....
Now, in Spain, I remember my journey every time I get a cup of this Loose Afternoon Earlgrey.
Maybe I am not being too professional with this review but I have just fallen in love with this one.
