This loose leaf tea is our Rare Tea Lady's (founder Henrietta Lovell) riff on a traditional Earl Grey; a more delicately herbaceous and distinctly lemon blend.

Instead of containing just black tea and the essential oil of bergamot that composes a traditional Earl Grey Tea - we’ve built up the lemon notes, not with more citrus but uniquely with delicious lemon herbs.

Rich yet elegant black loose leaf tea from the Shire Highlands of Malawi blended with Italian Bergamot, Malawi Lemon Verbena and Sri Lankan Lemongrass.

Cost Per Cup

26¢ per cup based on 0.1 oz of leaf per 5.5 fl oz of water and 2 infusions.

Tasting Notes

The bergamot is a subtle note rather than a deep perfume. Built on an elegant foundation of silky black tea, we have gently layered herbaceous lemon.

Flavours of lemon and fresh summer herbs; clean, bright and uplifting.

(This tea makes a wonderful base for a gin cocktail. Best hot extracted and rapidly shaken over ice with gin and a spot of sugar or honey.)


Satemwa Estate, Malawi


Robert "Chip" Kay

He would add a few leaves of fresh lemon verbena into his pot of black tea. Sadly Chip died in 2019 in his 90’s after a long life of tea. But his inspiration lives on, and the lemon verbena he loves. He helped set up small holder farmers in his community, mostly women with less than a hectare of land.
