Green tea has been linked to improving immune system health and aiding with weight loss.
Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus fruit bergamot - a sort of orange. While Earl Grey black tea is the namesake of Charles, the 2nd Earl of Grey, it is a little known fact that Earl Grey green is named after Sir Albert Henry George, the 4th Earl of Grey who lived between 1851 and 1917. Sir Albert served as Canada's Governer General from 1904 to 1911. It was during this time that this tea was brewed in his honour. Sir Albert particularly liked the way that the sweet bergamot blends with the slightly smoky profile of this green gunpowder tea.
This tea is sourced from tea plantations that are monitored by the Ethical Tea Partnership, meaning a fairer deal for the growers and workers, and a more environmentally friendly way to produce tea.
Try brewing the mix for a second time.
Some people like to add a little honey.
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - double the amount of tea per cup is recommended.
When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice and then serve.
For a smoother taste experience.
Place the tea in a jug and add cold water.
Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge)

Love this tea
Green earl grey tea is generally hard to get hold off, I’ve tried it from a few places and it’s either shocking quality or been sat there so long it’s flavourless. I stopped shopping elsewhere and have been buying it from Simpli Special for years now. It’s fresh, aromatic, not overpoweringly strong to make up for bad tea quality. Personally I brew it at 80 degrees for 5 mins. Love it!

Refreshingly Familiar but Different!
Having tried lots of mixes of earl grey/green/Black teas - this is the best yet - very fresh, exact mix of subtle green and tangy earl-grey; well done Simpli Special tea!
