Organic Earl Grey | Black Tea
Free Gift

This black tea classic is a blend of fine grown organic Indian black tea with natural bergamot. This makes for a slightly sweet, slightly floral and very satisfying cup of tea. 

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.

Suggested Steeping Instruction:
