Product Description

Tea: Earl Grey Superior

For a superior flavour, we blend high-grade Assam Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe with organic Calabrian oil of bergamot.

Named after a famous British prime minister, the second Earl Grey, this tea first appeared in the first half of the 19th century. However its exact provenance is a matter of debate. Either it was a gift from a Chinese mandarin, or his envoy to Earl Grey, or was created to suit the water at his stately home. We don’t know for sure but anyone who enjoys this tea’s unique flavour can be grateful for it finding its way into their home.

We recommend brewing this Earl Grey Superior tea for 3 and a half minutes at 95C.

Best served black or with a slice of lemon.

_______________

As with coffee, we source our tea through established relationships with individual farms, cooperatives and trusted partners. Although our business started with coffee, we introduced tea in the 1980s and spent a lot of time developing our selection and creating our very own blends.

Sustainability is an equally important factor in the tea growing process, both to our business and the wider tea industry. The most important part of the entire tea process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with tea estates which care for the local environment, work hard to combat climate change and support the workers and their families.
