There are about 15 species of Malva and are broadly found in the Mediterranean and temperate Europe, China and northern India. Malvas are annual, biennial or short-lived perennial herbs.

This one was difficult for me to write about, because I have such great memories associated with this brand that I didn’t want to dislike this tea. But I do. A lot.

I made several cups of this over the last two days – kept myself up half the night because I was so over-caffeinated! – but none of them hit the mark. It’s a solid Earl Grey, but the perfumey element of the cornflowers is just too much for me.

I have two more of their Earl Greys to try, and I’m hoping that they will be a lot more enjoyable. Right now I’m just happy I was able to use rewards points for this, and that I didn’t have to actually pay for it!

Smells wonderful and is very pretty. I like Nilgiri so this base appeals to me. It is a strong Earl Grey. I’m not sure the flowers smooth it out at all like the container claims. If you don’t like Earl Grey, this will definitely not appeal to you – this is a slap you in the face Earl. Compared to others I probably won’t buy this one again. I think my tastes have become a bit more subtle when it comes to the Earl. I love it and it is one of my favorite teas, but I have come to like a bit more depth and a little less bergamot.

THIS IS DELICIOUS! Pretty sure this came from Nicole. Thanks Nicole! YUM YUM and more YUM! The cup of vanilla soy I added is contributing to the creaminess, I’m sure, but the flavor is just perfect however it came to be. Yum!

I got this from Another TTB. It’s a decent Earl Grey with nothing to draw it back, but also nothing to make it stand out as special. It delivers the bergamot and smells decent.
