A twist on the classic Earl Grey, this black tea blend had all the foundational flavours of orange and bergamot, but with added ingredients of pineapple, papaya and hibiscus. These exotic fruits offer a distinctive tea oozing with tropical goodness.
Studies have shown that drinking black tea can lower your blood-pressure, which reduces risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition to this, bergamot extract is able to positively affect cholesterol ratios within the body; it reduces LDLs (low density lipoproteins), so-called ‘bad cholesterol’ and increases HDLs (high density lipoproteins), so-called ‘good cholesterol’. Another benefit is that pineapples contain bromelain, which can help the body tackle inflammation.
We suggest Blue Lady should be enjoyed in the afternoon and without milk. I typically prefer a drop of milk in my Earl Grey, so naturally presumed the same would apply with this tea. However, I can honestly attest that milk is not needed - this tea deserves to be experienced just as it is, allowing the fruity and floral undertones to come through.
