Earl Grey is one of the most popular and well-known teas throughout the world.
It is a traditional Chinese black tea flavoured with bergamot oil.
With a distinctive flavour and aroma that creates a very refreshing cup.
Earl Grey tea was named after the 2nd Earl Grey who is believed to have been given the recipe by a Chinese Mandarin whose life he saved.
Best enjoyed black.
Preparation: Use approximately 1 heaped teaspoon per cup. Pour over freshly boiled water and cover. Leave to stand for 3-5 minutes. Dispose of the used tea leaves.
Use with a strainer or tea pot to avoid the mess.
Delicious cup of Earl Grey.
I ordered the loose Earl Grey tea when I was stocking up on my usual coffee bean order. It is without a doubt one of the best Earl Grey’s I have tasted!
First purchased this tea at the home of Earl Grey, Howick Hall, and we enjoyed it so much I knew it would make a good gift for a tea lover. Delivery was swift.
