Tea is like wine
At two leaves and a bud tea company, we use only the finest teas, grown in single geographic regions, using traditional growing methods. The quality of tea varies from hillside to hillside. Our experienced tasters select only the finest growers to bring you the tastiest teas and herbal infusions.
We never blend with less expensive "filler teas"
The finest teas start with just the very small blossom, the two leaves and the bud of the tea flower. We named our company for these shoots which are the essence of great tea.
Our sachets are mug size, steep them in a big mug!
Organic black tea, natural bergamot oil
iHerb Customer Reviews
I had enjoyed Two Leaves and a Bud tea before, and considered them top quality. I liked that they were organic and had fair practices. This tea, however, arrived in packaging that said just "two leaves tea company, new look, same great tea". However, the ingredients on this tea does not even contain bergamot oil. Instead it is "Organic Black Tea, Organic Cornflowers, Natural Flavor". I never would have bought it if I'd known. I avoid "natural flavor" whenever possible. There is very little taste to this tea. I add some dried lavender to make it more interesting. Some of you may not like that the bags come in plastic wrappers. Not sure if mine was a fluke or if this is the tea you will receive, in which case iherb should update the info. I purchased this about 6 months ago.
This tea is of fantastic quality. The little tea bags are a delight to open and are very fancy-looking. Excellent flavor with a mild hint of Bergamot. If you like a ton of bergamot flavor, look elsewhere. This is my husband's favorite Earl Grey.
