An exceptionally rich Organic Black Tea, fermented to perfection, with a touch of citrusy organic bergamot oil, creating a light refreshing taste. This combination creates an ultra fine tea where precision and process gives birth to this much revered beverage. While Earl Grey possesses the delicacy and nuance of flavor to be enjoyed on its own, it’s also beautifully accentuated with a slice of lemon and goes well with citrus or buttery flavored pastries. It can be served hot with or without milk or sugar/honey, and is an excellent drink for any time of the day.
