From The Tea Table

Over the centuries, many women have held the title of Baroness Grey, but this tea was blended in honor of one woman in particular. British legend has it that this Baroness of Grey, who lived sometime in the 16th or 17th century, was married to a man who was a ship’s captain in the Royal Navy. As the story goes, the ship never returned from a trading voyage to China. Refusing to believe that her husband would never return, the Baroness would walk to the port lands every morning to greet each ship in hope for news of her husband. Sadly, she continued this practice until the day she died.

In honor of the loyal Baroness, Baroness Grey Tea was blended with the traditional bergamot oil and the addition of rose and cornflower petals to represent the love she had for her husband, and orange peels and lime leaves to represent the bitter tears she shed over her beloved. The citrus peels included in this blend add a lovely tartness to the existing citrus flavor of the bergamot, making it a fantastic alternative to traditional Earl Grey. Use one teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes.

Alas, this doesn’t make such a great iced tea mixed with Khumbu Green. I had hoped that the sharpness of this one would mix with the earthiness of that one, but instead they fought it out unhappily. Either one alone is much better than this mix….
