Product Description

Earl Grey Blue Bergamot Black Tea

Traditionally Earl Grey Tea has been a blend of Chinese and Indian teas with a memorable citrus aroma and flavor derived from the addition of oil extracted from the aromatic bergamot orange rinds.

For our Earl Grey Tea we use teas sourced from the 3 preeminent growing regions of Sri Lanka – Dimbula, Nuwara Eliya and Nuwara Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have the signature “Ceylon‟ tea character which is recognized by its floral aroma and flavor, bright coppery color and mild astringency. The teas from these three regions provide an ideal base for our flavored teas.

Tea from Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya achieve their quality peak during the January and February time period (depending on that year’s growing conditions), while teas grown in Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya hit their optimum flavor during July and August (depending on growing conditions). These multiple peak periods allow us the opportunity to have tea plucked twice a year for our flavored tea blends which ensures optimal freshness and flavor.

We use flavoring oils (not lesser quality crystals) of bergamot oranges. Bergamot oranges, Citrus bergamia (a subspecies of bitter orange), is commercially grown in a small area in southern Italy, where more than 80% of world’s commercial supply of bergamot oranges are grown. Bergamot orange is a fragrant fruit with a yellow color and looks comparable to a lemon but is about the size of an medium orange. The fruit is not grown for its juice consumption as it’s not generally considered to be a flavorful fruit but instead is sought after for the skin's fragrant oils.

We only use top quality natural flavors in our Earl Grey Tea. A top quality Earl Grey has a enchanting taste and the natural flavors don’t cover up the authentic taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. Lesser quality Earl Grey Teas are loaded with overwhelming artificial flavors, which are often used to disguise a lower quality tea.

Top quality natural flavors on the other hand, will not leave an aftertaste which allows more of the teas true character to come through. Natural flavors have a tendency to be slightly muted and are meant to enhance the Ceylon tea and not over flavor it. Earl Grey aficionados prefer this and it’s one of the leading attributes of a top grade Earl Grey.
