The return of Mermaid’s Tears!
Since November 2021 sourcing Elderflower has become increasingly more difficult. How incredible it was to find it growing locally!
These Elderflower were harvested in June 2022, and bring a more intense floral note to this blend.
What is Mermaid’s Tears?
A blend of elderflower, lemon balm and butterfly pea flower, this infusion is light and floral.
Naturally caffeine free, and surprisingly free from added colourings.

How do I prepare this blue infusion?
For Western style brewing
Use about 1 heaped teaspoon of tea to a cup.
Infuse for 5 or more minutes depending on preferred taste. The longer you leave it the more intense the colour and taste.
This herbal blend is not recommended for Chinese style/Gong Fu brewing.
The more blue flowers in your infusion, the more blue your brew.
*Ok, so no magic, all science!
As always, free from artificial flavourings.
Ingredients: Butterfly Pea Flower, Elderflower blossoms and Lemon Balm
