Earl Grey Black Tea is a very traditional tea flavor made fashionable by the Prime Minister of England, Earl Grey (1830-1834). Earl Grey is a blend of high-grown Ceylon black tea scented with the oil of bergamot, a citrus fruit similar to an orange. This particular blend of Earl Grey is often reported to be “the best Earl Grey I have ever tasted!”
Earl Grey Black Tea is excellent served either hot or iced and takes well to sugar, honey and other sweeteners. Milk may also be added.
To prepare Earl Grey Black Tea, measure one teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water. Infuse 3-5 minutes. This tea may also be prepared using the cold-infusion method. Using the same measurements, drop tea infuser into a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Place in refrigerator 8-12 hours (or overnight). Cold-infused tea has higher levels of antioxidants, less tannins and less caffeine. To warm, simply pour the cold-infused tea into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
Due to the inclusion of black tea leaves, Earl Grey Black Tea may be infused a second time, although flavor will be lighter, using either traditional infusing methods or cold-infusion.
Store Earl Grey Black Tea in a cool, dry place away from bright light.
