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.

      Great blend and strong flavor

      One of my favorite earl grey blends (and I have tried quite a few). The flavor is strong and does not need to steep long.

      Long time favorite

      Early Grey has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I've tried many different brands over the years. Tea Forte just makes a tea that I look forward to having every time I make it.

      The BEST!

      OK, I’m officially a tea snob. This is the best earl gray! And I have discovered a sort of tea latte. I make this with steamed milk with agave syrup and it’s delicious! I think it’s called a London fog. Do you self a favor and try this one

      Old faithful

      The taste of bergamot in this selection of Earl Grey is just right. I love opening the canister and being met with a blast of floral brightness. It makes for a perfect cup of morning freshness.

      Strongest Bergamot I’ve Found

      I am an Earl Gray lover and this tea is a must. I love a strong scent and taste of bergamot and this tea delivers. If you don’t like strong bergamot, this is not your Earl Gray. Please buy English Breakfast and leave the TF Earl Gray for bergamot lovers😊
