Earl Grey Tea

1 5 5 2

Earl Grey tea was created as a way to imitate Chinese black teas that were flavored with mandarin. The British, not having direct access to mandarins, used oil from bergamots (another fragrant citrus fruit). It was actually a fraudulent product passed off as the real thing, the tea equivalent of buying an authentic Prada bag from the trunk of a car. However, Earl Grey soon became greatly appreciated for its own unique flavor and thus a new classic tea was born.

Our Earl Grey comes packed with bergamot oil and the addition of indigo cornflower petals. The result is a classic flavor with plenty of citrus. Often served with a bit of cream and sugar Earl Grey is the perfect tea time cup.
