Combining a high grown Ceylon tea and a smooth top grade Keemun, along with top quality natural bergamot oil, and you have a high quality classic tea that quite simply delivers an amazing 'Earl Grey' experience with no aftertaste or overpowering perfume.
Earl grey refers to a 19th-century British aristocrat and Prime Minister, Charles Grey, who is credited with introducing the blend.
Introduced in the late 1800s, this tea has gained in popularity in recent years. It is made from Ceylon black tea blended with natural vanilla flavouring and bergamot oil.
The essential oils of bergamot in this blend give it its signature flavour and aroma.
