Flavoured black tea with major notes of bergamot and lavender.
To revisit an Earl Grey, such a mythical tea of an English phlegm, requests a complete know-how when giving its flavours and to make it in “the French way” is a wonderful adventure. I chose the most ancient Italian bergamot, the “Old England”; this bergamot being harvested following ancestrals customs is rather costly but unveils an unprecedented fragrance. Here I am, diving in the mysterious and sensual lavender flowers.
Ideal infusion time: 3~5 mn.
