Organic Earl Grey Tea

Renowned for its wonderful bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic.  Earl Grey is believed to have been named after Earl Charles Grey, British Prime Minister (1830 – 34).  Reputedly, he received a gift of tea flavoured with bergamot oil.  It has since become the one of the nation’s favourite teas. It was actually Chinese tea masters who first blended black tea with bergamot.  A sweet, floral bergamot mixed with malty, full-bodied black tea leaves. There are endless ways to sip Earl Grey. The English favour a thin slice of lemon. Parisians prefer a sprig of lavender. In South Africa, they’re partial to Rooibos Earl Grey (which is, helpfully, caffeine free). That light citrus zing has one other bonus – Earl Grey works wonders in desserts. Chocolate is a classic, but try infusing Earl Grey in custard. It makes a cracking crème brûlée.

Origin: India

Serving Suggestion: Add 1-2 teaspoon and brew in 90-95ºC water for 3-5 minutes. Serve with lemon or sugar to taste.
