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.

      Wonderful tea

      The Earl Grey and the other black tea from Tea Forte are really good. It does not have the artificial flavoring like some other tea. I would highly recommend Tea Forte if you like black tea.

      Better than I expected

      I got this tea for my daughter because Earl Grey is her favorite. She loves it and I find I'm really enjoying it too.

      One of the best teas ever!

      So refreshing and flavorful. It also smells heavenly due to the bergamot.

      The best there is!

      As a daily tea drinker, and particular fan of Earl Grey, I have tried literally every brand there is. The Tea Forté sachets are by far my favorite. They combine the balance of assam with bergamot perfectly, for a tea that is both strong and yet still subtle. There is even a hint of sweetness not typically found in this tea -- most are either slightly acidic or too tart. This is perfection!

      I tried this before when I was traveling in Boston with my friend and I fell in love with it. It was my first time actually trying this brand and I was drawn into the aromatic smell of the tea. I can't wait to share with others too!
