What Is In Our Earl Grey?
Black tea is one of the most popular types of tea. Tea comes from the tea plant Camellia sinensis which naturally contains caffeine as well as antioxidants. Black teas are popular as morning teas and tend to pair better with milk and sweeteners than do the other tea types.
Black teas are fully oxidized. This oxidation happens through repeated withering and rolling of the tea before the tea leaves can be dried. Black teas have more caffeine than other teas and have malty and more decadent flavors.
Earl Grey can be made with black tea of any origin, though the classic Earl Grey includes black teas from Darjeeling or Ceylon. Our Earl Grey uses organic black tea from the Andean Foothills of Colombia’s Cauca Department.
Bergamot is a citrus fruit that looks similar to an orange and is green to yellow. Most of the world’s commercial bergamot production comes from Calabria, in southern Italy. Bergamot oil is what gives Earl Grey its distinctive and delicious taste.
Lavender is a group of plants in the mint family. Lavender produces purple to blue flowers that carry a distinct aroma that is both inviting and relaxing.
