Description

Earl Grey Classic Black Tea

Our Earl Gery is based on China Black Tea. Earl Gery tea gets its unusual flavor from Bergamot oil, which is extracted from the rind of the small, acidic Bergamot orange (Citrus bergamia). The latest research indicates that the Bergamot orange is a cross between the sweet or pear lemon (Citrus limetta), and the Seville or sour orange (Citrus aurantium).

High grown, our Earl Grey is a top-of-the-tier timeless classic. Aromatic bergamot adds a refined tart citrus taste to this dark, full-lead tea. It has a refreshing taste, and can be served hot, with or without milk or sugar, or with a lemon. It can also be used to make iced tea.

Traditional Earl Grey is a blend of black tea, flavored with the essence of Bergamot rind. Yet, this name may also be used to refer to any tea, black or otherwise, that uses bergamot as a flavoring . Bergamots are small tart oranges native to southern Vietnam. The essential oils from their rinds are what give Earl Grey its characteristic flavor. Consequently, the tea often sees use in all manner of confectionary, lending a subtle, citrusy zest to chocolates, similar to our Chocolate Truffle Orange Rooibos.

The famous Earl Gery tea is named for the English prime minister, Lord Charles Grey the second, from the 1830s who first popularized its consumption. There is a popular legend that the Earl of Grey received the tea as a gift from a grateful Mandarin, after one of his men saved the Mandarin from drowning. Charming though it is, the story has no basis in fact, because the Earl Grey never traveled to China during his life. Beyond that, no records indicate that the Bergamot was even cultivated in China at that time. 

Nevertheless, the current Earl Grey, Lord Charles Grey the sixth, maintains that at the very least, his ancestor was given the tea as a gift from a Chinese envoy, and he endorses Twinings of London’s recipe for the tea. Interestingly, the English teahouse Jacksons of Piccadilly also claims to be in possession of the original recipe for Earl Grey, having received it from the Earl himself in 1830.

Whether you belive these stories or not, everyone has tried Earl Grey at least once. And yet this one is different. The exceptional blend of these rare, ethically-grown, high-altitude black teas, with the Pure oil of bergamot gives it an aroma that’s headier and aromatic than usual.
