The best Earl Grey teas begin with high quality, full black tea leaves, which get their legendary flavor from natural bergamot oil - oil from a citrus fruit grown in Bergamo, Italy. This is an elegant tea with tried and true flavor that ranges from a light citrus zip to a deep, smooth black tea.
Use 15oz filtered water per sachet.
Pour boiling water (212°F) over sachet.
Steep 4-5 minutes.
Excellent with a splash of milk, or a squeeze of lemon, but not both at the same time.
Try a London Fog: Steep Organic Earl Grey (leave room for milk). Add ½ tsp vanilla extract to tea. Steam milk and pour over tea. Sweeten to taste.
Try it iced. Brew in 6 oz. water, add sweetener (optional!), and pour over ice.
Add tea leaves to cookies, shortbread, muffins, scones, quick breads and cakes for a lovely flavor.
