Earl Grey Tea from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and you'll discover a full-bodied black tea with a fragrant and citrusy aroma and a rich citrus flavor.
One of the most famous, and rightfully distinctive teas in all the world, Earl Grey derives its unique flavor from oil of Bergamot, a Mediterranean citrus fruit like an orange (in case you were wondering). Named after the 2nd Earl Grey, a British prime minister who received this flavored tea as a gift and served it in his ministerial drawing rooms, the tea has been in continuous production since the 1830s. Enjoy it black or with milk. This item includes 20 tea bags in a gift-worthy tin canister.
Aroma: Fragrant & Citrusy
Flavor: Rich Citrus
Pairings: Choclate Custard, Creme Brulee
Because various teas respond differently, it’s important to balance time and temperature. To brew tea, simply steep it in hot water. Steeping is the process of extracting the flavor and health promoting compounds used in making the tea.
For this product we recommend the following steep time and maximum temperature:
STEEP: 5 Minutes // 195℉ / 91℃
