Our classic Organic Earl Grey loose leaf tea, is the perfect gift for any tea lover. Best loose leaf tea / best tasting Australian tea.
Renowned for its wonderful bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic. Earl Grey is believed to have been named after Earl Charles Grey, British Prime Minister (1830 – 34). Reputedly, he received a gift of tea flavoured with bergamot oil. It has since become the one of the nation’s favourite teas. It was actually Chinese tea masters who first blended black tea with bergamot. A sweet, floral bergamot mixed with malty, full-bodied black tea leaves. There are endless ways to sip Earl Grey. The English favour a thin slice of lemon. Parisians prefer a sprig of lavender. In South Africa, they’re partial to Rooibos Earl Grey (which is, helpfully, caffeine free). That light citrus zing has one other bonus – Earl Grey works wonders in desserts. Chocolate is a classic, but try infusing Earl Grey in custard. It makes a cracking crème brûlée.
