The return of Mermaid’s Tears!
Since 2021 sourcing elderflower became increasingly more difficult. How incredible it was to discover this growing locally!
All the elderflower in this blend was harvested in June 2023, in various secret and not so secret areas in the Scottish Highlands.
This stunning elderflower brings a more intense floral note to the blend.
These freshly dried flowers are phenomenal, with this in mind Mermaid’s Tears is only available while seasonal stocks last, as the quality of our hand picked flowers cannot be matched.
Stay tuned in Summer 2024 for the restock!
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.
When infused with water this produces a brilliant blue brew, with a magical* twist as turns bright purple when adding lemon juice.
Always popular with kids, try adding a dash of maple syrup for some natural sweetness if needed.
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
