Earl Grey Tea - Loose Earl Grey Black Tea
Earl Grey Tea is a blend of Indian and Ceylon teas. The tea gets its unusual flavor from oil of Bergamot, which is a small acidic orange. The latest research indicates that the Bergamot orange is a cross between the sweet or pear lemon (Citrus Limetta) and the Seville or sour orange (Citrus Aurantium). The sour orange is native to southern Vietnam, hence the Chinese connection.
This tea has a light refreshing taste, and can be served hot with or without milk or sugar. It can also be used to make iced tea.
