Baroness Grey

Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus fruit bergamot - a sort of orange. The stories of Earl Grey are numerous. This tea was blended in commemoration of a previous Baroness of Grey who showed extraordinary loyalty to her missing husband. 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, his 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, hoping for news of her husband. Sadly, she continued this practice until the day she died.

Simpli-Special Serving Suggestions

Some people enjoy this tea with a little milk or coconut milk.
Try brewing the mix for a second time.
Some people like to add a little honey.
For a really fiery blend, add an extra scoop of ginger before brewing.
Especially delicious iced.

Iced Tea
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - double the amount of tea per cup is recommended.
When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice and then serve.

Cold Brew
For a smoother taste experience.
Place the tea in a jug and add cold water.
Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge)

Excellent product and excellent taste!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the product or the service you provide; it is excellent but is there any way that the tea could be packaged in a more environmentally friendly material? I have previously and recently received your products in plastic packaging; I do understand that keeping the product 'fresh' is a key point - my question to you is: are you, as a company, able to 'move away' from plastic packaging?

Thank-you for your consideration - I would welcome any thoughts you may have on the aforementioned.
