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.
While also enjoyable in the best British bone china teacup, you may want to brew yourself a mug full…. Go ahead, it’s decaffeinated, so enjoy Decaffeinated Lavender Earl Grey loose Tea whenever only a cup will suffice. Cheerio!

I was searching for a replacement to my favorite Earl Grey due to the desire to consume less caffeine during the day. I went out on a limb and ordered this Decaf Earl Grey with lavender and could not be more pleased. It is well balanced and brews to my desired strength. This tea also passed the London Fog test this past weekend. I will absolutely be reordering.
P.S. The free tea samples were a lovely surprise and I can’t wait to try them all.
I love tea. I enjoy black teas with a hint of flavor. I was previously (happily) drinking a premium tea brand from the local stores. I stopped in to Good Life Tea to inquire about an anti-inflammatory tea. The salesperson showed me several teas which I subsequently tried. I couldn't be happier with the choices that she suggested. I went back the next day and purchased more. Each time I made a purchase, I received a complimentary sample of another tea in the same category as what I purchased (sleepy time teas, decaf teas, and Roi-boos teas). After being in isolation for 3 weeks, I went online and purchased a few more teas. The packaging was even enjoyable with a personal note. I can't imagine going back to the store bought teas. These teas are rich and flavorful. What a pleasure!!! Top notch company!!!
The tea came quickly and was fresh and just exactly what I wanted to make my favorite Cottonwood Latte! My Dr said no caffeine so I was very happy to find a decaf in general but earl grey and with lavender, perfect. I had the cottonwood once at a coffee shop in Albuquerque and I have made it for myself ever since. ( black tea, lavender, coconut based vanilla cream) anyway thanks for a great cup of tea!
The tea is wonderful. By mistake I ordered another bag and tried to cancel twice but it didn't work.
Hi quality lavender earl gray. Strong and pungent but smooth and flavorful. I use to make lavender earl gray lattes that remind me of my home in Arizona. I absolutely love this company and their products!
