A hand-crafted blend of full-bodied organic Indian black tea from Nilgiri, natural bergamot essence and beautiful blue Cornflowers. Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) is a small flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to Europe and North America. It is an annual plant with flowers that are most commonly an intense blue color. Cornflower is considered a beneficial "weed" that often grows in crop fields, hence its name. Both the flowers and shoots of the plant are edible and can be consumed raw or cooked. It has been included in Greek mythology as a flower with healing powers especially towards wounds, and has also been recognized as a tonic for tired eyes.

For brewing black teas, we recommend using higher temperature water, close to or just before boiling (190 - 200 F), with a proportion of one teaspoon of leaf per 8oz of water. Some recommend water at a full, rolling boil, but in our opinion boiling reduces the oxygen content in good water and gives the tea a flatter taste as opposed to a livelier one from slightly cooler water. Steeping time can vary depending on whether you wish to drink with milk (or non-dairy equivalent) or without. To drink without milk, 3 ½ to 4 ½ minutes is plenty of time to bring out a well balanced sweetness and astringency. With milk, a slightly longer time is required, 5 to 6 minutes, to acquire enough astringency to balance the milk.
