Lavender Luxe | Maui Earl Grey Inspiration
Maui Earl Grey is inspired by lavender from Maui, the Valley Isle. The plant thrives in cold climates and its purple hue can be seen on the slopes of Haleakala.

We meticulously blend the botanical with silky black tea and bergamot from Madagascar so Maui Earl Grey is uplifting without being perfumey. The blend is available in both loose tea and tea bags.

We were honored to be a part of the 10th Anniversary Lʻulu Benefit Gala to support Leeward Community College’s Culinary Arts Program. What made this year’s event special, besides our hit drink (LOL!), was ten alumni chefs from renown kitchens like Alan Wong’s Restaurant, Four Seasons Ko Olina and Ritz Carlton Waikiki return to campus to prepare exclusive dishes for the evening.

Maui Mist Iced Tea Latte with Lemongrass Creme
We made a refreshing iced tea latte featuring Maui Earl Grey. Here’s how we did it.

Ingredients:
  • Lemongrass
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Mint
Directions:
  • Heat water to 195° (F). Steep 5 g Maui Earl Grey to 8 oz hot water for 5 minutes. Strain and let cool.
  • For simple syrup, boil equal parts of water and pure cane sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved and the liquid is clear. Let cool.
  • Smash lemongrass and simmer in whole milk. Do not burn milk but simmer long enough so milk is infused with lemongrass flavor. Let cool then chill.
  • Combine 12 oz cold heavy cream to 4 oz cold lemongrass milk. Mix in 3 tablespoons powdered sugar. Add to whipped cream dispenser to apply.
  • Mix 8 oz brewed Maui Earl Grey, 2 oz milk and 1 oz simple syrup. Serve in a tall glass over ice. Top with lemongrass whipped cream. Add mint garnish and serve.
