Earl Grey White Tip | Black Tea
The best Earl Grey black tea we’ve ever tasted. Extremely aromatic and flavorful, this is a blend of Ceylon black tea, Chinese Silver Needles white tea, and natural bergamot flavor. This black tea is more powerful than most Earl Greys, and a hint of floral citrus comes through in both the aroma and cup. Once you've had this tea you may never be able to go back to regular Earl Grey again.
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.
