About Earl Grey Tea

Tea Type : Black Tea

Tea Forté Earl Grey is an exceptional blend of stunningly superb Organic Assam tea leaves infused with cold-pressed Italian Bergamot oil from the citrus fruit grown in Calabria, Italy. Considered to be one of the most popular teas in the West, and likely the most popular flavored tea in the world, we’ve made this an even greater grey with a sprinkling of organic cornflowers to create a rich, full-bodied cup for those who enjoy their tea with milk for the perfect classic.

The natural citrus oil is pressed from the peel of the Bergamot citrus fruit and gives Earl Grey its distinctive taste and aroma. Bergamot is a small citrus fruit with a protruding nub like a navel orange. Earl Grey tea is flavored with oil made from bergamot peel, and has a distinctive taste loved by many. Earl Grey tea is named after Charles Grey, the 2nd Earl Grey and Prime Minister of England from 1830-1834. Legend has it that he received bergamot flavored tea as a gift after one of his men had rescued the son of a Chinese mandarin from drowning.

Earl Grey is a classic English tea time treat. Traditionally it is served with twist of lemon or a bit of sugar. However, it can also be taken with a touch of milk and honey (just remember, milk and lemon together will curdle!). Earl Grey is equally well suited for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or anytime that a warming cup would satisfy.

      This tea is a perfect combination of tea and Bergamot / Assam flavors. Once tried, it is impossible to resist not to buy it again and again.

      Best tasting tea ever

      I have bought a lot of different brands of tea but I always come back to Tea Forte. Their packaging and quality are the best I have seen. The variety of flavors are amazing and it’s great that they have variety boxes to try the new flavors.

      Tea Forte is my Go To

      I have been buying Earl Grey and English Breakfast Tea pyramids for over 6 years. I am very happy with the ease of use and the quality of the tea. When I run out, I truly miss not having them available to start my day off. I sometimes use other blends from Tea Forte in the evening to end my day. Service has been excellent. I've never been disappointed.

      Best Tea Ever

      This tea has such a great taste, I have completely stop drinking coffee. Matter of fact I don't like the taste of coffee any longer. I used to be an addict but after drinking the teas from Tea Forte I no longer have the taste or desire of coffee. It is a great life changer and tea is the healthier option.

      Always the best!

      We drink tea every morning, at least two cups so the infusers with your custom teapot is perfect. We have used no other teas in our house and have no plans to change in the future.
