Blue Sky Tea is our refreshing and versatile twist on the classic Earl Grey Tea. This flavoured black tea sees the addition of Grapefruit oil to give an extra citrusy kick. Try it on its own, with milk, iced or even in a cocktail.
Renowned as we are for our Extra Scented Earl Grey, we thought we'd add another member to our citrus-flavoured black tea family. With the addition of Orange already taken up on the market in the delightful form of Lady Grey, we looked to the next size up from Bergamot, which one only ever seems to find in Earl Grey, and settled on the Grapefruit.
In creating this blend we decided to go for the sweeter more distinctive Pink Grapefruit. With the delicate decorative embellishment of Blue Cornflower petals, we warmed to our theme of creating a cheery 'Recession-busting' refreshment. Blue Sky Blend was born and was so enamoured by the Judges at the North West Fine Food awards that they gave it a Gold Medal on its first outing into the wider world. Under the premise that 'another cup of tea' is the greatest procrastinator to the creative process, we would recommend that if you're looking to do some Blue Sky Thinking get Blue Sky Drinking! (I obviously need to go and do just that...!)
Our Blue Sky tea is great served black, with milk or even iced. At our cafe Atkinsons at the Mackie Mayor it also works great a cocktail component. Try substituting Earl Grey for Blue Sky tea in a John Daly. Brew a tea concentrate, add a splash of vodka, shake with ice and top up with lemonade.
