Made with Single Origin Ceylon from Bogawantalawa Valley in the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka and natural essential oil extracted from the skin of bergamot grown in Southern Italy; Our exclusive flavored Earl Grey is bold and sweet with delicate citrus notes and a deep sienna flavor liquor.
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.
