Early 19th century England marks the origin of Earl Grey tea, a uniquely refreshing and aromatic tea created from the oil of bergamot infused in black tea. Bergamot has a pleasant citrus flavor derived from the bergamot tree yielding orange oils, both smoky and distinctive. Gifted to and named for the second Earl Grey of England in the early part of the century when he was serving as British Prime Minister, this tea was likely bequeathed as an act of diplomatic tribute. This unique and now renowned tea was enjoyed by the British upper-crust uniquely and exclusively. Many tales of its origin can be found, but one fact that remains indisputable is the unparalleled aroma and exotic, delicious pungency and vibrancy of this tea, fit only for those of the most distinctive, most refined and epicurean of taste buds.
Add to this tea evocative of a bygone era of finesse and distinction, the scent of French lavender-- the fragrant oil used to relieve nervous tension, migraines and headaches, and to promote sleep. Fragrance and flavor are the hallmarks of this Earl Grey, with the scent and gentle taste of lavender infused creating a medley of olfactory magnificence. Transport yourself back to a time of elegance, formality and refinement with this most unusual blend of captivating taste and sensory experience. The lavender is also a tribute to the prevalence of lavender in the local area. This tea is a breath of warm May air in a New York spring, any time of year.

I love this tea. I have ordered it in the past and enjoyed it. This order arrived and it was incorrect so I am still waiting for the correct order to arrive.
Recently purchased decaf lavendar Earl Grey and I love it! Recently purchased tea in London, Santa Fe, St. Louis, and Boulder and this was one of the best!
I look forward to my cup of Decaf Earl Grey tea every night. It is the best tasting decaf Ive ever had. The lavender is so calming and gives a great aroma. I add a touch of almond milk and love to dip a biscotti in it. I'm placing my second order and trying some more. The personal touch was the icing on the cake. Love the hand written note and the inspirational notes in the tea. AND the delicious sample of iced tea. Awesome! Thank you
I make Earl Grey lattes with this tea. The flavor is wonderful and not overpowered by the milk.
I didn't know if a decaf earl grey with lavender even existed, so I was delighted when my google search led me to this site. I ordered 3 of the decaf teas, plus tins, and a new tea infuser, all to help me in my caffeine-free pregnancy. They arrived in 2 days, packaged beautifully in the tins, and I was thrilled! All of the teas are delicious, smell fragrant and fresh, and brew up perfectly. The earl grey with lavender tastes better than I had imagined, it made a delicious London Fog this past weekend! Count this preggo as one happy and repeat customer! Thanks!
