We use natural (not artificial) Bergamot Oil, pressed from citrus fruit that is grown in Italy

Use 2 teaspoons (2-3 grams) per 6 oz of water
We recommend a 3-4 minute steeping for our Earl Grey; infuse for a shorter time if you want more citrus, a longer time if you want more depth of flavor.
The water temperature should be 190°F-200°F

 

Steeping Tip:

 

The longer a flavored or scented tea is steeped the more the base flavor of the tea will dominate and the less the ‘perfume’ of the scenting or flavoring will be evident.

Our Earl Grey is simply superb. We start by carefully-crafting a blend of full-bodied black teas. Then we scent our blended tea base with 100% natural Italian oil of Bergamot (it has no preservatives!) to have just the right level of citrus-y snap. We do our Earl Grey blending right here in the shop, generally about once a week, so that the Earl Grey you purchase from us is at its peak of flavor.

Our level of scenting is fairly high, but not overpowering. We do not add bits of dried flowers or artificial flavoring or fillers into our Earl Grey. Many other tea vendors add lavender, rose, Lapsang Souchong or other secondary flavors to their Earl Grey. We do not add anything but Bergamot oil, preferring to blend simply the classic Earl Grey for you.

We hesitated at first from placing our Earl Grey in the ‘Our Picks’ category, because we can hardly keep up with blending it already, but it is sooo delicious and popular that we yield to the legions of fans who drink it regularly.
