Tea Story

This fragrant loose leaf tea offers a wonderfully aromatic and flavoursome Earl Grey experience.  Milder and fruitier than a traditional Earl Grey, this blend imparts a uniquely muscatel rich Darjeeling flavour with enticing hints of bergamot enhanced by pieces of bergamot fruit.

Darjeeling black teas are known as the champagne of tea. Usually made from the Chinese Camellia Sinensis Sinensis variety of the tea plant, they impart a thin-bodied and light-coloured brew with muscatel notes and a floral aroma that makes them stand out from other black teas. Notice the wonderful mix of mossy-green and dark brown colours of the leaves, reminiscent of a forest floor in autumn.

To make this characteristic interpretation of Earl Grey tea, we have carefully selected a premium Darjeeling tea blend and delicately infused it with the finest bergamot oil. We use 100% pure essential bergamot oil, which hails from the coastal region of Calabria in Southern Italy. The tea is then mixed with dried bergamot fruit pieces - also from Calabria, Italy. The delicate Darjeeling leaves are beautifully complemented by the luxurious scent and flavour of the bergamot fruit.

Enjoyed mid-morning - or in the afternoon - this is an exceptional Earl Grey tea with an abundance of the distinctive flavours of Darjeeling black tea.

Ingredients: Darjeeling Black Tea Blend, Bergamot Oil, Bergamot Pieces.

A Sophisticated Earl Grey

This is really subtle and enjoyable version of an Earl Grey tea - even tastes good if you accidentally let your cup go cold! Excellent packaging and rapid delivery service.

The leaves smell very good of bergamot as does the liquor which is a lovely golden hue. The taste however doesn't match: the bergamot flavor is quite distant, overwhelmed by a sour note like too much lemon juice. The darjeeling flavor is only present as an aftertaste.

This is a beautiful and delicate (for Earl Grey) tea. Golden liquor. Zesty nose. Great with a slice of lemon. Has rapidly become a fast favourite!

Unusual to have pieces of the fruit in with it, very nice but I prefer your tea without the additions.
