India "Earl Grey" Black Tea
- ORIGIN: Assam, India
- DESCRIPTION: Black tea flavored with bergamot and lavender flower
- FLAVOR: Dark and bold, contrasted with floral and citrus notes
This is a classic English tea blend, named after former British royalty who loved this fragrant black tea blend. The exact style and definition of earl grey (and its spelling) is debated, but at Camellia Rd we like our earl grey with both lavender and bergamot for added layers of tasting complexity.
We recommend trying this tea as one might in Britain, as a hot tea with milk and sugar, and in between bites of a pastry like a blueberry scone.
