DESCRIPTION

GRAND EARL GREY          
organic black tea (sample)

Earl Grey is a traditional, full-bodied blend of black tea and Mediterranean bergamot. Bergamot is a citrus fruit from southern Italy that lends its flowery-sweet, citrus aroma to this classic tea. Dark and rich, yet smooth and aromatic, our Grand Earl Grey is frequently complimented as the best Earl Grey available!

Our Grand Earl Grey is higher in quality than other Earl Grey teas because, rather than using strong, artificial bergamot flavor to mask poor quality tea, we us pure essential oil pressed from real bergamot citrus fruits to enhance the natural character of an exceptional, Yunnan black tea base.

  1. A delicious enough bergamot on a strong base!

    Posted by C B on 15th Jul 2019


    I'm very picky about my Earls but this one passes the test. The base tea is robust and strong. But the bergamot is also strong, doesn't waver in the face of this strong base! I like the strong citrusy aromatic bergamot here. My favorite Earls need to have the distinct base tea battling a tough bergamot and this Earl definitely does that. My absolute favorite Earls need to have a cream flavor, but I will admit this isn't supposed to be creamy anyway. The photo of the tea looks like a Yunnan with occasional golden leaves, but my sample had no gold at all and was a pure black tea. The description does mention the base tea being Yunnan. I'm not sure if my sample still is... if I had to guess I'd say it was Assam. I'd probably like bergamot better with Assam rather than Yunnan anyway. Both steeps were delicious and full of flavor.
    Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 19 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
    Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 minute steep


  2. It is a great start to my day!

    As the other reviewers say, it is the best Earl Grey tea on the market. It has a rich, complex flavor with a wonderful floral aroma that is heavenly.


  3. Buy this Earl Grey!

    I've been an Earl Grey drinker since my first trip to Europe 15 years ago. This is by far the best due to it aroma and freshness, and the taste is just what you hope - no bitterness. Brew correctly and you will be more than satisfied. This is not the typical you buy in a box in the store ---- it will change your appreciation for Earl Grey.
