Oh-so-English and very posh, this best selling, Earl Grey blend is essential for High Tea. Be transported to the English countryside by the aroma of heavenly Bergamot. These Earl Grey tea bags are a mainstay in your tea cupboard. Reach for them when you crave this select blend of finest teas with its particularly invigorating and refreshing citrus taste. Sip 'as is' or add a slice of lemon if so desired.
Our Earl Grey blend has a slightly higher dosage of bergamot when compared to our Aromatic Earl Grey blend.
The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water.
Heat fresh water to a rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea bag. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This black tea has more caffeine than teas in our green tea range. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.
