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.

      Breakfast bliss

      My Husband drinks this every morning instead of a second coffee. He adds 1/2 teaspoon honey and a few spoons of milk.

      Earl Grey is my ultimate favorite flavor from black tea assortment. I also love love love Bombay chai tea from black teas. Overall I’m very satisfied with my experience with tea forte. I also purchased their teapots and tea cups- my family and guests just love them.

      Great. Would love it more if there was a little less of an orange taste.

      Best Earl Grey ever!

      I love Earl Grey tea. I have had many brands and a friend introduced me to Tea Forte and I have to say...this is the absolute best Ear Grey I have ever had. I recently received a gift certificate for Tea Forte and stocked up on it. I drink it every day. It is the perfect blend and the bergamot is "just right." Thank you.

      Best Earl Grey Tea!!!

      I love this Earl grey tea!! the bouquet is strong and hits you once you open the box. It is strong and makes a strong first brew. I always make a second cup with the same teabag as it handles it well. Highly recommended. The event box is also a great value and comes in a beautiful box.
