Be very British - make yourself a cuppa Earl Grey.
To describe Earl Grey as naturally “bright” is to put a well-earned fine point on one particular part of its overall flavor collection: the oil of bergamot that rests atop the classy, unassuming black base. Coming from the earthier eastern tea farms of Sri Lanka, this tea bears more of a western sensibility hailing the trade routes that once connected Sri Lanka to Europe.
Handsome in sight with cornflower petals completing its mixture, Earl Grey is a longstanding everyman/everywoman's tisinal; it's flavour easy to access and understand. Nothing particularly gardenal nor sweet, and yet nothing tending towards complexity or astringency. A tea for all times, weathers, moods, and seasons; Earl Grey is a lovely and naturally decaffeinated (using CO2) way to enjoy tea at its simplest. Sure to swirl up memories of one's first childhood sip: enjoy Earl Grey hot, cold, and sweetened to taste.

Earl Grey has always been my favorite flavor of tea.
We're so happy that you have found our Earl Grey! Happy sipping!
I was a little worried when I first got this tea as the smell is quite overwhelming, very strong. But when it is brewed it is perfect. Very nice for an afternoon tea when I want something with a bit of milk in it. Excellent!!
