Time for Tea Please?
Today I’m sipping on Suki Tea and their Earl Grey Blue Flower! Big thanks to the lovelies at Suki Tea for sending me this tea to try.
I absolutely love Suki Teas:
To grow a global community of loose leaf tea drinkers, an appreciation society of the ritual in a great-tasting, ethically sourced cuppa.
To grow the business in an adventurous, yet responsible and sustainable way that respects and values people, plant and the planet.
Suki Tea was founded in 2005 by business partners Anne Irwin and Oscar Woolley. Having both traveled in Asia and being able to see first hand ethically-sourced teas they launched Suki Tea with their aim to share the finest loose leaf teas , herbal and fruit blends from around the world.

Earl Grey Blue Flower
For this tea Suki Tea blends “Fairtrade, Organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified East African Black tea, Centaurea cyanus flower petals and Organic natural Bergamot Oil.” I just love the vibrance of the petals. It adds an extra prettiness to the blend.
Upon opening the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed with the floral aromas of the blend. I just love floral aromas within tea blends, to me just adds an extra level. Mixed with the black tea and the essence of the Bergamot Oil it smells tealicious. Here’s hoping it tastes as good as it smells!
Let’s get brewing!
As expected with a black based tea the brewed liquid is brown in colour with a slight orange tinge. The aroma while brewing isn’t far from from it’s dry state which makes me even more excited to try. I do love an earl grey so let’s get sipping!
First sip and I am not disappointed. It’s thankfully one of those blends which allows all three aspects of which it is made up of to sing solely and as a co,vines one all at the same time. Each sip has equal measures of black tea, bergamot and centaurea cyanus flower petals. They work just perfect together. The floral tones within the tea is just on the right level, it was strong enough to make an impact yet not over powering or underwhelming. I’m all for floral flavours and for me this tea let’s it sing just beauTEAfully.
I always drink my earl grey tea black for me it’s just weird to even think about putting milk in especially this blend with its floral tones. However like with any tea it’s a unique sipping experience to you so if you want to try it with milk you go for it!
This tea is the perfect afternoon tea , it’s light and refreshing and with the floral tonnes it makes for such a pleasurable drinking experience . To me it’s almost calming the perfect me time tea.
Happy Sipping 🙂
