Earl Grey Light Black Tea

A lighter blend of Earl Grey. This Ceylon black tea has abut half the bergamot oil as the regular blend for those who appreciate the unique taste of Earl Grey tea, but would like a lighter bergamot flavor.

Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus bergamot fruit - a sort of orange. The stories of Earl Grey are numerous. One such tale tells how a British diplomat on a mission to China saved the life of a Mandarin and as a gift of gratitude was given the recipe for this flavored tea. This diplomat upon his return to Britain presented the tea to the Prime Minister of the day, Earl Grey. Another story says it was the Prime Minister himself who saved the Mandarin. In an event it was the Prime Minister of England (1830-1834) Earl Grey who made this tea fashionable.
 
Only high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva are used for this special blend. These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic Ceylon tea character which is noted by floral bouquet, flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, and bright coppery color. Flavoring oils are used instead of crystals so the tea does not have a bitter aftertaste. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavors which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character.
