This Sri Lankan Ceylon tea is blended with oil extracted from bergamot citrus rind. This tea was created originally as a gift from a Chinese nobleman to Earl Grey, the British Prime Minister in the 1830’s.

It is often enjoyed with milk and sugar or honey. It can be used as flavouring for cakes, confectionaries and butter. Paired beautifully for an afternoon tea with treats. This soothing tea has been said to make you purr from the inside out.

An invigorating citrus aroma with a smooth and delicate flavour.

Description

Tea was brought to Sri Lanka from China by the British in 1824. The area has the perfect conditions to produce a robust Ceylon Black Tea. In the 19th century this tea revolutionised tea drinking due to its sweet, deep, malty and complex taste.

Traditionally Earl Grey is a blend of Ceylon and the oil from the citrus plant, Bergamot. We have chosen to use a beautifully rich, robust, sweet and deep Ceylon, creating a bold, malty and smooth flavour that lends well to the citrus flavour that makes Earl Grey.

It takes around 200 kg of fruit to produce 1 kg of bergamot essence.

Directions: 1 level teaspoon / 1 tea bag per 200ml water. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes.

Ingredients: Ceylon black tea, Bergamot
