More of a Good Thing Tea - Our exceptional Earl Greyer blend combines the lush flavor and exquisite fragrance of the Bergamot Orange, native to Southern Italy, with a lovely Ceylon black tea leaf from Sri Lanka. Recognized as the best tasting Earl Grey available.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Fine black tea and natural bergamot oil
Country of Origin
Tea: Ceylon, Kenya / Bergamot: Italy

Not Greyer, a let down and too timid

I usually drink a from a 20oz cup. my standard go to Earl Grey, provided from a purveyor in Vancouver Canada, I put three bags in the cup. For this tea, I put three bags in the cup and there was barely a taste, certainly not near that of my regular supplier. A cursory examination of the problem yielded a probably explanation. 50 bags of Republic of Tea ($10.50) is labeled as 2.8oz on the tin. 50 bags ($14.50) from the Vancouver Canada purveyor is labeled as 9oz. I think you could do just as well with Twinnings from a local supermarket.

This tea has a wonderful, subtle flavor. It startled me at first, because it was not what I was expecting. I had not ever had an Earl Grey tea that tasted like this. When I used up the last tea bag, I felt so sad, because I will miss it terribly until I can order up some more.
