  • Keep lots of this Nobleman's tea on hand. You never know who might drop in.

    Imagine being a nobleman. Imagine living in the 1800's in England on a great sprawling manicured estate. On that estate, you tend to take your tea when the landscape is fresh and lush and the part of the day that is hectic is behind you or in front of you but is not now—No, now you are at peace. Now you retreat into all that is splendid. Ushering in the reflective, calm, you sit on your marble patio, drinking in both your dense, flavorful Earl Grey Supreme tea as well as drinking in a breath of calm in your day. 

    Imagine being given your very own tea that is completely unique and tantalizingly refreshing. The second Earl Grey of England received an exquisite tea named in his honor in the early nineteenth century, thought to be a gift of diplomatic tribute. In accord with his tea drinking experience, you too can make Earl Grey Supreme your own. For the connoisseur of teas, like Earl Grey himself, our Earl Grey Supreme black tea is the pinnacle of black teas with the pungent, citrusy infusion of bergamot.  The oils of the bergamot tree yield a citrusy sap from which this infusion is drawn. Made of superior tea tips, this supreme blend has an extra infusion of lemony bergamot. Just think, the legacy of Earl Grey can be yours with this most excellent of teas—Earl Grey Supreme.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
