Purists will delight in the delicate floral-citrus notes of French Earl Grey Royale as they dance around in their natural state. Of course, if you’re a sweet-tooth, you should feel free to add a touch of your favourite sweetener to lift the flavour. Traditionally, the French don’t add milk to their tea, but a dash of milk will be lovely if you’re partial to creaminess.
For those French royalty feels, delight your friends and family with tea served in fine china. Of course, any of your favourite teacup will do. This heavenly tea is always elegant, regardless of the vessel in which it is served.
Its elegant floral notes play beautifully among themselves, but for a Parisian twist, enjoy a refined French afternoon tea (le goûter) with delicacies like petite fours, macarons, éclairs, profiteroles, millefeuille (flaky puff pastry filled with layers of pastry cream), fruit tartlets, and miniature cakes. French Earl Grey Royale is also divine with St. Honoré cake (puff pastry, choux pastry, whipped cream, and caramelised sugar), Mont Blanc pastry (meringue rounds, whipped cream, and chestnut cream vermicelli), or Religieuse Á La Rose (stacked choux pastry balls filled with fluffy rose or lychee flavoured cream, decorated with pink glaze and a fresh raspberry).
In France, tea is enjoyed freely whenever the desire arises. Afternoons are perhaps the perfect time to enjoy French Earl Grey Royale’s gentle lift. However, when the sun sets, it’s best to only indulge if you’re up for a late-night buzz.
For a softer buzz
1 tsp per cup
3 – 5 min
Add 1 tsp of tea to a teapot. Pour in 200 ml of water boiled to 100°C. Steep for 3 – 5 min. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste.
Brew it the traditional French way
Boil freshly drawn ambient water in a teakettle to 100°C;. Warm a ceramic teapot by rinsing with the hot water. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup to the teapot and 1 for the pot. Pour in the hot water. Stir and steep covered for 3 – 5 min. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste. Best served in your finest china with sugar on the side. If there is tea remaining in the pot, strain immediately into another warmed teapot or if using an infuser remove it from the pot to prevent any bitterness. Sip elegantly and enjoy on its own or with petite fours.
