It might be your favourite cuppa, but this quintessentially British tea also makes a great cooking ingredient! To celebrate our month of British eccentrics, we’ve decided to be playful and creative with this traditional brew. So here’s the challenge: how many ways of cooking with Earl Grey can you think of? Post us a link to your recipe and you could win a box of Earl Grey infused chocolates!
We’ll be collecting our favourite Earl Grey recipes on Pinterest. Send us a link to your recipes via Twitter (#EarlGreyChallenge), Facebook or as a WordPress comment (this entry only) until the 29th of March. The winner will be announced on Friday the 30th of March.
This competition is open to UK residents only. Only original recipes from your personal blog(s) will be valid.

Will we have a white Christmas this year? Well, here at Lahloo we definitely will! Not necessarily because of the snow, but more because of our delicate and elegant white teas: from the pure, clean flavour of our Snow Jewel to the honeyed notes of White Whisper or the slightly stronger roasted tones of White Peony… Perfect to relax after an exhausting afternoon of Christmas shopping!
Hopefully you’ve done all your Christmas shopping by now and you can concentrate on getting ready for the celebrations! We’ve been very busy baking cookies, biscuits and these beautiful Christmas inspired macarons: cranberry and Earl Grey mincemeat.
…And of course, huge batches of mince pies (with our Earl Grey infused mincemeat!).
It’s time for some introductions! This the Lahloo Pantry staff looking witchy and fabulous, getting ready for our first Witches Tea Party.
Don’t you love the hats?
On Sunday the 30th, just in time for Halloween, we turned the Pantry into a coven and served our visitors a very special afternoon tea: chai pumpkin tartlets, zombie gingerbread men, mini mud monsters, dead man’s finger sandwiches and witchy scones with our g&t.
Almost too cute to eat!
But the star of the afternoon was our Witches Brew, a special blend of our sweet Yunnan Cloud black tea with apple and spices, a warming and comforting treat to protect you against the evil spirits… We want to share the love, so if you tried it and loved it, or if you’re feeling curious (sounds good, doesn’t it?), you can find our secret recipe here.
And what did we dance to? Our soundtrack was full of retro Halloween tunes, such as this feelgood classic!
How did you spend Halloween? Did you come to the Pantry for some afternoon tea? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
