This popular flavored tea blend has its roots in 1830s Great Britain. As the legend goes, the British Prime Minister Earl Grey II had rescued the young son of a Chinese Mandarin from drowning (or the son of an Indian Rajah from a tiger, depending on who’s telling the story). The grateful father brought him a gift of blended Indian and Ceylon teas flavored with oil of bergamot, extracted from the rind of bergamot oranges.
Our Organic Earl Grey contains nothing but Organic Orange Pekoe black tea and real, imported Italian Organic Bergamot oil – no other flavor ingredients of any kind. The oil is cold-pressed, filtered, and refined, but remains all natural. This selection is a paragon of its kind, featuring a silkier, more refined touch of bergamot. One thing is for sure: this is real Earl Grey tea for real Earl Grey fans.
This tea is sold loose leaf, meaning it will not arrive packed in tea bags.

- “Like another reviewer I've tried many other Earl Greys. This one is a little light, but is so smooth and lovely. I don't think it's possible to stew it - I"m often less attentive to my teapot than I should be. It also right in the sweet spot for amount of bergamot. It doesn't taste like you're drinking perfume, nor like you're drinking "plain" black tea. ”
