Ooh-la-la flavor notes from “crème de la vanille”, Earl Grey, Jasmine, and Lavender deliciously blended with flavory Ceylons, Nilgiris, Assams, and Kenyas. French Blend boasts a good flavor, tempered with a flowery character and malty notes.
French Blend is a blend of teas from India (Assam & Nilgiri), Sri Lanka, Kenya, and China. The Assam component gives the tea richness – the Nilgiri and Ceylon a saucy but sprightly flavor. From Kenya, there is romance and mystery with superb golden color notes, and from China there is the delicate perfume of Jasmine – so often used in Parisian perfumes.
To cement the “French” character, lavender from Provence was added along with some rose petals. French Blend is a tea fit for the Latin Quarter along the Seine.
For the best brew, French Blend should steep in water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 2-5 minutes.
