Tea - All tea is produced from a plant called Camellia sinensis. The thousands of different varieties of teas available in the world only vary by the region it was grown, the time of year picked, and the processing method. Each type of tea has its own characteristics including a different taste, differing health benefits, and even different levels of caffeine.
Green of London Earl Gray from Palais des Thes is a blend of Chinese green tea, bergamot, cornflower and blue mallow. The smell is fruity and flowery and the taste basically similar.

The Perfect Mesh Ball - This in-house designed steeper is bigger, so your teas have more room to expand. We also made the stainless steel mesh finer, so no tea leaf could escape. And we added silicone accents, so it closes with a nice, snug seal.
