Our take on Lady Grey is a smooth, mellow Earl Grey with wild French lavender, a bit of South African rooibos, and just a touch of French vanilla to add a touch of creaminess. You can add milk to it, but you really don't need to.
Our Countess Greystoke tea is named for the wife of Tarzan, Jane Porter. John Clayton, Earl Greystoke (a.k.a. Tarzan) married Jane Porter in "Return of Tarzan," by Edgar Rice Burroughs, thus becoming Countess (the proper title for the wife of an Earl) Greystoke.
Lady Greystoke also makes a wonderful tea latte. We like it with vanilla soy milk.
