Description

DESCRIPTION:

Being one of the most popular tea in the west, black tea with a hint of citrus is the perfect introduction for our Earl Grey Royale. The classic black tea from Shri Lanka’s finest estates flavored with a refreshing twist of bergamot Orange.

Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus bergamot fruit – a sort of orange.

The stories of Earl Grey are numerous. One such tale tells how a British diplomat on a mission to China saved the life of a Mandarin and as a gift of gratitude was given the recipe for this flavored tea. This diplomat upon his return to Britain presented the tea to the Prime Minister of the day, Earl Grey.

Another story says it was the Prime Minister himself who saved the Mandarin. In any event, it was the Prime Minister of England (1830-1834) Earl Grey who made this tea fashionable.

Whatever the story is, let’s start our morning with a stimulating cup of robust earl grey and enjoy its stunning nutty and citrusy aftertaste that keeps you going.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

We only use teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka – Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula, and Uva. Dim blue and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This dual peak period allows us to buy the best for our flavored tea several times a year. These high-grown districts produce teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character, noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of astringency, and bright coppery color. Perfect as the base of our flavored teas. [We tested teas from various other origins around the world as a base for our flavored teas, but none made the grade. Flavoring oils, not artificial crystals, give the tea drinker high-quality tea that tastes great.

  8. Kasia

    If you like Earl Grey tea try this brand. This is the best Earl Grey tea I have ever tried.

  9. Jotter

    I don’t have much to say except that it is the best Earl grey tea that I have tasted so far. The aroma of the bergamot oil is stronger in this tea than in other brands. The product was well packaged and taste was excellent. I just ordered a second bag! I strongly recommend.

  10. Malcolm

    Fragrant tea that is not overpowering. Love waking up to it! I love Earl Grey and this one smell and taste so good!

  11. David

    I make one cup of black tea a day and this pouch lasts a really long time. The taste is great and I don’t think you could find it anywhere cheaper, at least not at the local tea shops in my area. It is really hard to find loose leaf tea at a supermarket so specialty shops tend to charge more, I guess.

  12. SopheeJay

    By far my favorite tea. Tried hundreds of samples until I found this one. Now it’s all I drink, and I am picky. Trick is playing with the amount per cup. Took a few tries to get it right. Brews perfect in 5 minutes, just adjust strength to your liking.

  13. Bo Sheraton

    This tea is absolutely amazing.
    I very rarely drink tea, but if I do I want it to smell very nice and this tea smells and tastes amazing (I primarily used to drink earl grey).

  14. I. Hamilton

    This is one of my all-time favorite teas. I drink tea almost every day, and I love how dark and rich this Earl Grey is. This would make the perfect gift for a tea lover, or a great gift to treat yourself. This tea is worth every penny!

  15. Dr. Eva Koudela

    For me this is by far the best Earl Grey tea. It has a thicker taste, the bergamot is just right and pairs well with my scone or toast. It is different than the standard Earl Grey and I really do enjoy the overall taste.

  16. diane

    Love the flavor of this Earl grey tea! With and without honey is also really good doesn’t come off bitter at all you just have to brew it right and it will be delicious.

  17. H Vyas

    Super great aroma! Packaging was perfect. Fast shipping. My new favorite and will definitely purchase again. Awesome flavor
    You won’t be disappointed.

  18. Angelina

    Delicious, quality tea!

  19. Alex P

    This tea is my all time favorite! Loose leaf tea is the only way to go (for me that is).
    Will be ordering more. Not bitter, full body and smooth taste!
