Formulation Change: Please note that in 2017 the formulation and flavour on this blend changed. We now source the tea from an organic tea garden in Sri Lanka and the blend has a touch of lime peel in it. We hope you enjoy it.
What defines an Earl Grey Blend?
Earl Grey blends are easily recognised by the characteristic aroma of bergamot. This is an essence extracted from the aromatic skin of the bergamot orange which is grown mainly around the coastal areas of Italy. It is the defining taste in any earl grey blend. Blends vary by the amount of bergamot added and the tea base used. Our Earl Grey Blueflower for example has more bergamot than the Earl Grey Supreme.
If the bergamot aroma seems familiar take a look at the ingredients list on many perfumes and skin care products for both men and women, often you will find it there also.
