A delicious black tea, flavoured with Bergamot to give the distinctive smell and taste beloved by so many.
The Earl Grey blend is named after the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s and author of the Reform Bill of 1832, who reputedly received a gift of tea flavoured with bergamot oil, a citrus fruit typical of Southeast Asia and grown commercially in Italy.
Earl Grey tea is used as a flavouring for many types of cakes and confectionery, such as chocolates, as well as savoury sauces. For sauces, the flavour is normally created by adding tea bags to the basic stock, boiling for a few minutes and then discarding the bags.
For sweet recipes, loose tea is often added to melted butter and strained after the flavour is infused.
Production Process: Tea goes into a spinning flavouring drum and sprayed with bergamot oil. It is then allowed to absorb overnight and packed the following day into laminated kraft paper bags.
