We make this tea in the shop to our own secret recipe which came about because we wanted to make an unparalleled quality version of the classic English blend. We sought out the finest grade of real bergamot oil to use in our tea, unlike most if not all the blends in this country which use artificial flavouring. We added this to a high quality blend of mountain grown Chinese teas which would be equally happy with or without milk. It is freshly made on an almost daily basis so you can truly enjoy its intense fragrance and flavour at its peak. That said, if stored in a good tea caddy it would still be in a different league to other varieties five years from now. No one is sure who created the original blend or indeed what it was like but we are confident that our most popular type will make you feel that you have only really now discovered the real Earl Grey yourself.

- I love this tea! The intense aroma of bergamot is what makes it so good. I take it without milk or sugar and it is simply delicious. (Posted on 22/05/2011)

- Intense and delicious. Perfect first thing in the morning. The aroma alone when you open the tea caddy is enough to wake you up into full conciousness. (Posted on 15/03/2010)

As soon as the water hits the leaves the aroma is there, beautiful nose refreshing taste. To say anything more would be a waste of mouth time.
Thank you. (Posted on 17/12/2009)
