A classic Earl Grey, perfect for afternoon tea,
but can be drunk at any time - this one even late at night.

The addition of the bergamot enhances the balance of flavours in this luxury black tea blend for a delicious traditional flavour. The citrusy taste in our Earl Grey is from the addition of natural organic bergamot oil. The bergamot orange is a type of aromatic citrus fruit that is usually grown in the Mediterranean. Bergamot oil is extracted from the skin of the bergamot fruit.

Earl Grey tea is that most British of drinks. So much so, that it’s alleged namesake is the British Prime Minister of the time. Was it in thanks for removing the monopoly of the East India Company on importing tea from China? The mystery surrounding the origin of this tea only adds to its allure.

A perfect alternative for tea lovers who are trying to reduce their caffeine consumption. We use a gentle natural decaffeinating process to retain the delicate flavour and aroma of this Earl Grey


 
A guide to our decaffeinating process
  • The tea leaves are moistened with just water and placed under gentle pressure.
  • Pressurised and heated CO2 is passed through the tea leaves, where it bonds with the caffeine molecules.
  • Finally, the now decaffeinated tea leaves are dried and packed. With all the leaves intact, delicious.
 
 
Hot Tea Brewing Method

Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into your teapot. Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 - 7 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
This tea is enhanced by the addition of milk and sugar but it is perfectly acceptable to drink it 'straight up.'
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.

 
Iced Tea Brewing Method

Make as for hot, but add extra tea. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
Add milk and sugar to taste.

To make 1 litre of iced tea: Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant jug. Pour ½ pint (275ml) of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving jug with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving jug while straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the jug with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.


 
 Especially enticing with milk. Tastes just as good as the caffeinated version.
