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.

      Love this in the infusers

      I make London Fog lattes most mornings, and I prefer to use the pyramid infusers for it. After pouring in the stramed milk, I leave the infuser in for an extra long steep (and it looks cool with the leaf popping out).

      Fantastic!

      One of my pleasures is to prepare a pot of Earl Grey tea and sit down and savour its fragrance and warmth. Tea Forte is the best for an individual cuppa. Besides, it looks so special with its pyramid shape and tiny leaf on top. The presentation makes me feel special!

      Nice looking Earl gray that could use more taste

      The tea is strong, but it lacks the bergamot scent and taste.

      First Time

      My wife asked for two event boxes (English Breakfast and Earl Grey) for Christmas this year. I hadn't tried them, but she enjoyed them when she traveled and stayed at certain hotels. I was very pleased after trying both and planning to order some green and herbal for me, plus some more for her!
