Decaf Earl Grey | Black Tea
Description: Get all of the taste of this classic Ceylon black tea blend with almost none of the caffeine. This tea is medium-bodied and very aromatic.
In recent years, Jean Luc Picard made Earl Grey tea famous in Star Trek: The Next Generation, but the various origin legends of Earl Grey date back to the 1830's. Supposedly, this tea was a gift to a British lord from Chinese mandarins—except that bergamot didn't exist in China at the time. Bergamot is a citrus fruit native to Mediterranean countries, with a wonderful aroma but a bitter taste.
