Blend, The Tao of Tea
Earl Grey is probably the most well known tea in the west and perhaps the first scented tea. Its popularity parallels that of Jasmine tea in China, and Chai in India. This is a hand crafted blend of certified organic black tea and organic Bergamot Essence.
Organic Black Tea
Although, there are several types of black teas, we choose only a fine grade of organic black tea that has full-body and smooth texture.
Fresh, citrusy and slightly floral. Strong, full-rounded taste.
Reggio di Calabria in Southern Italy is the native growing area for 'Citrus Bergamia' Bergamot.
Its arrival in Calabria is shrouded in mystery, and even though it grows elsewhere, only in this area does it give us the essential oil popularity used to make Earl Grey tea. The oil is also widely used for aromatherapy treatments and is knows to have antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties. We use a refined, steam-distilled essence of organic bergamot for this tea.
Use one teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces of non-chlorinated water at 180F for three minutes.
100% organic black tea leaves, organic bergamot essence.
It is great that this is a whole leaf tea and at the same time also organic. The taste, however, is not as balanced as I expected as the black tea is is a bit strong and overwhelms the bergamot. Overall, the taste is not very smooth or refined. However, I am still giving it 4 stars because it is whole leaf, organic and at a superbly great price AND stored in a such a lovely stainless steel tin with a double lid. What more can you expect? Some of the very balanced and refined tasting teas out there are very artistically made and very well blended but they are extremely expensive and not neccessary organic - so if you are looking for a healthier version that don't break the bank, it is a good choice.
Аромат бергамота только из банки, при заварке почти не ощущается. Но баночка удобная, да. Но сам чай - не понравился. Bergamot flavor only from a vessel at brewing almost non-existent. But jar handy, yes. But I don't like this tea.

Organic, yes, but the flavor is so faint, it may as well be only black tea with no bergamot

Really enjoy this tea. Nice citrusy and bergamot orange smell. The black tea is not too dark.

I simply adore this tea...It's a real treat after a long hectic day, and such a pleasure to sip on while chatting with a friend. I will definitely be ordering some more for myself and to offer as a gift :D!
