Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with oil from the citrus bergamot fruit-a sort of orange. We only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka -Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva.These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic „Ceylon‟ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly -perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. (We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our flavored teas, Secondly, we use flavoring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat. Thirdly...we specify natural flavors. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea.

5 stars I agree with the previous reviewer - mostly Written by

Whilst I agree with the previous reviewer about the excellence of this tea, I disagree with the comment on price - compare the cost of loose tea to the cost of 'nice tea bags' and loose tea stops looking expensive!

I came across this blend served in a cafe in Leamington, and much like Caol Isla did for whiskey, this brew turned my head. I can't lie, it's the most expensive tea I've ever bought, almost eye-wateringly so. However, it's also the finest. The bergamot character is herb-like rather than perfumy, and a distant lavender can be detected in the background. It is like no other earl grey I've tasted. Don't be tempted to brew this strong. bitter tea notes destroy this cup. Brew medium or light with a little sugar if liked. Heaven for the taste buds. Hell for the wallet.
