The Traditional Earl Grey
Earl Grey tea has a unique taste and a lovely aroma. It’s made using black tea and bergamot orange extract and is a popular drink worldwide, which has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. Black tea leaves are traditionally grown in India’s hilly regions, and extract from the Citrus Bergamia tree is added to create earl greys unique flavour.
Producing your cup of Earl Grey
The dried tea leaves are sprayed with either an extract from the bergamot tree or essential oil during production. Earl Grey can also be produced by mixing dried bergamot rinds with the tea. Whichever method is used during production, Earl Grey has a mild citrus-like taste.
Earl grey tea got its name from British Prime Minister, Earl Grey, who enjoyed the drink. For this reason, many people consider Earl Grey, which is also known as bergamot tea, as an English drink. However, it was traditionally produced in Southeast Asia and drunk widely by citizens. Today Earl Grey tea is cultivated in citrus growing regions of Southern Italy.
Brew Yourself the Perfect One!
To brew the tea, add the leaves or tea bags to a teapot or cup and add boiling water. Leave to brew for between two to three minutes or as per desired strength, before straining. Additional sweeteners may be added to taste.
