Bellocq







I discovered a new (to me) tea label at Lane Crawford over the weekend, Bellocq. I'm a sucker for nice packaging, and the bright yellow and polished stainless steel canisters definitely caught my eye. I bought myself a tin of their "Queen's Guard" blend, which is a mix of Organic black Ceylon tea, organic rose petals, organic lavender and organic cornflowers. Its a lovely light tea, perfect for the afternoon, and a little sweet (you can definitely taste the rose petals). Their range is quite large, but I think Lane Crawford (Pacific Place) only stocks a few of their blends. I'm keen to try a few more, in particular their Breakfast blend and the Afghan Chai - a mix of Organic Assam black tea, organic red poppy flowers, green cardamon, star anise, ginger, clove and black pepper.... sounds yum!
