Black OrangeRegular price $9.25
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.
*Please note that our Earl Grey Blends contain pure Oil of Bergamot. They are therefore not suitable for those with allergies to citrus fruits.*
China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.
Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.
Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.
