Heavenly Cream is a black tea with an alluring aroma and taste that is cherished by many tea lovers. Created from a blend of the finest Assam and Ceylon teas, Sloane Tea enhances the flavour with Italian bergamot, vanilla and cornflowers.
Tea drinkers have come to know Sloane Tea for its use of the best ingredients. By choosing Italian bergamot, the blender’s passion for choosing quality flavours is obvious.
Bergamot is a citrus fruit that originates in the Mediterranean region. A sour orange with a green colour, people do not eat bergamot as a fresh fruit. Instead, many recipes incorporate the essential oils from the rind for flavouring. You will recognize its distinct taste in Earl Grey tea.
Along with the bergamot, you will notice the scent of Madagascar vanilla. Again, choosing top drawer ingredients shows that Sloane Tea takes care of all the details. Although vanilla is originally from the new world, Madagascar proved to be an excellent location for growing great vanilla. Referred to as bourbon vanilla, the beans from this region are known for their sweet and creamy flavour.
And now to enjoy Heavenly Cream
The first thing you notice when you open the canister of Sloane Heavenly Cream Tea is the beautiful aroma. Pause and enjoy! Now visually take in the blend of the blackness of the tea leaves complemented by the stunning blue of the cornflower petals. Use a teaspoon of leaves for each cup of tea you are making. Brew as you would a black tea. Use full boiling water with four to five minutes of steeping time. And keep enjoying that magnificent scent!
Sloane Tea Heavenly Cream is also excellent as an ice tea. For a stronger flavour, you can use a bit more tea in the steep.
