DescriptionAn exquisite blend of black and green tealeaves, perfumed with intoxicating jasmine and bergamot and accented with blue cornflower petals.
PalateAroma: Floral and citrus.
Palate: Medium bodied with a sweet uplifting finish.
High energy and high caffeine.
With this tea, we've successfully blended the taste of jasmine with the citrus-like flavour of bergamot to produce a classic Earl Grey with an unexpected twist. Blue cornflower petals add visual interest and at the same time deepen the floral tinge.
Estate black tea, cornflowers, natural jasmine oil and natural bergamot oil.
Our Master Blender intended this blend to have jasmine's natural scent and the bergamot oil harmoniously blended, with the sweetness of jasmine leading, followed by a wondrous citrus character.
The type of bergamot oil used in an Earl Grey blend makes an immense difference. Natural bergamot essential oil has a more subtle, but well-defined, flavour with zest and a genuine citrus intensity; conversely, synthetic bergamot is more one-dimensional, having a tendency to taste timid in the cup. The former is what we have always chosen to use at TEALEAVES.
