Origin: Blended at Westholme
Ingredients: Black Pekoe Teas from India, Sri Lanka, China, Oil of Bergamot, Orange Peel, Pure Vanilla Bean
Description: A true Earl Grey tea consists of a fine black tea scented with the unique fragrance of pure oil of bergamot. We’ve made a wonderful and extravagant expansion on this classic tea by adding pure vanilla bean, orange peel, and Ceylon tea to enhance the natural sweet citrus notes that Earl Grey is known for. Using beautiful large tea leaves, the flavours in this blend unfold gently into a smooth, warm and comforting black tea. This cup is excellent and naturally sweet on its own, but also handles milk and honey nicely.
Tasting Notes: The beautiful, bright amber cup smells of sweet vanilla malt and fresh zested citrus peel. Begins with soft vanilla and the crisp refreshing fruity notes of Ceylon tea on the tongue. This builds to orange peel and a warm malted cinnamon flavour, astringency building in the mid-tongue and rounding off into a sweet linger.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
