Several stories are told about how Premium Earl Grey Tea came to be. They all stem, however, after Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s under King William IV. According to legend, one of Grey’s men saved the son of a Chinese mandarin from drowning. To show his gratification the Chinese mandarin gifted the tea blend to the Earl.
Premium Earl Grey Tea is an extremely aromatic, citrus-flavored blend. The citrus notes of the tea come from bergamot oil, a pear-shaped citrus grown close to the Mediterranean. Bergamot oil with its sweet orange peel scent with floral hints, comes from the rind of the bergamot orange.
For the perfect cup of Premium Earl Grey Tea, heat water to just boiling, add one teaspoon of our loose-leaf premium Earl Grey tea, and allow to steep for 3-5 minutes. Serve with a slice of lemon or milk and sweeten to taste. This will bring out the citrus flavor. Enjoy Premium Earl Grey Tea from RiseCoffeeSupply.com!
