‘Earlderberry Grey’ was created due to a couple of factors. The first is that Elderberries are so lovely, both in taste and in health benefits that I wanted to have as many options as possible involving them. No matter your personal preferences, unless it is just hating fruit in beverages, I want you to be able to enjoy drinking their bounty.
The second factor is that Mister Tea has always loved Earl Grey, and I thought I would start with the option most likely to serve him well when sick, or exposed to sick at work. Our ‘Beauxbaton’s Blend’ is a wonderful tea, but it gets a wee bit pricey to sick-guzzle.
The blending went fairly swiftly, I have enough experience with both Earl Grey and Elderberry to know generally what I’m going to need to do with them before I begin. The naming went even more swiftly, though I initially twitched at Mister Tea’s pronouncement. However, a couple of the sage souls of our ever patient Tea Naming Group agreed with the choice. I will admit that it makes me chuckle a bit inside, every time I see the work ‘Earlderberry.’
