A refreshing blend of organic green tea and Bergamot. The Earl Grey blend is named after the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s. According to one legend, a grateful Chinese mandarin presented Lord Grey with the blend.
Reggio di Calabria in Southern Italy is the native growing area for ‘Citrus Bergamia’ Bergamot. We use a steam distilled Bergamot essential oil with the organic green tea.
Green Earl Grey pairs especially well with breakfast breads, rice desserts, dark chocolate and slightly spicy foods.
Very aromatic, citrus notes, crisp flavor.
The Tao of Tea
Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people’s lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.
Brew one teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces of filtered water at 175F for four minutes. Provides at least two infusions.
