Earl of Grey
Malty yet light and refreshing. This is the classic "Earl of Grey". Our blend of organic black teas gets its typical Earl Gray note from the natural aroma of bergamot.
Product information "Earl of Gray"
Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon. The combination of black teas from these growing regions - refined with a touch of bergamot oil - is one of the most popular: Earl Grey. Malty Assam and noble Darjeeling. Both come from India. But they couldn't be more different. One consists of large, fertile, hot, humid tea gardens near the Brahmaputra River. The second from higher gardens on the southern slopes of the Himalayas. Mountainous, cool and foggy. All of India covers around 20 percent of the world's tea production. But: Indians also love their tea. They drink most of it themselves. Only about 20 percent is exported. The British gave them a taste for it in the 19th century. When they built large tea plantations so that they would no longer be so dependent on China. Also the namesake of the tea blend: a Brit. Charles Gray was British Prime Minister from 1830 to 1834. And the British influence goes even further. As a small island nation, Sri Lanka was also formerly under the British flag. As a colony of Ceylon. The tea is still called that. But on coffee, not on tea. This was what they relied on in Sri Lanka until 1869. Then a fungal disease destroyed the plantations. From then on, tea was grown. The growing regions are mainly in the central highlands. There is high-grown, medium-grown and low-grown tea. Depending on the height. Another variable: the two monsoon seasons. They have different effects on the growing areas. The result is many of the characteristics of the different growing regions, just like good wine. But the three teas in our “Earl of Gray” blend also have something in common: they are all traditionally picked by hand. And they fit together perfectly.
