A popular choice from our Traditional Tea range – find out if our Earl Grey is right for you.

You will love our Earl Grey if,

you are after a smooth black tea with fresh citrus notes and you enjoy your tea either with, or without milk.

Should I drink Earl Grey with, or without milk?

This blend tastes great either with, or without milk. As a black tea, it offers a clean, well balanced, zesty citrus flavour. With the addition of milk and sweetener if desired, this beautiful Earl Grey tea has a strong body gently highlighted by elements of refreshing citrus.

 

Does Earl Grey tea contain caffeine?

Our Earl Grey tea does contain caffeine, as is the case with all Camellia Sinensis teas such as black, green, oolong and white tea. As Earl Grey is a black tea it does have a relatively high caffeine content, however this is less than what is found in coffee, but more than what is in oolong, green or white teas. If you are sensitive to caffeine, we recommend enjoying them in the first half of the day, to avoid becoming overstimulated at the end of the day, and allowing the body enough time to adequately metabolise the caffeine before sleep.

 

 

What is in our Earl Grey tea?

This is a blend of premium quality Ceylon black tea with the essential oil of bergamot, harvested from the Calabrian region in southern Italy. The two ingredients are carefully hand blended and then left to sit, to allow the natural oils to delicately infuse together. The bergamot oil has a refreshing and vibrant flavour, that is seamlessly balanced with the muscatel tones of Ceylon black tea.

Our ingredients for this blend are sourced from Sri Lanka, and Italy – and hand packed with care by us, in Victoria, Australia.

 

 

How do you brew Earl Grey tea?

Loose leaf

Place a heaped teaspoon (2.5 grams) of tea per cup (250ml) into a teapot or infuser. Add filtered water at 80-85ºc and allow to infuse for 3–4 minutes. Strain the tea, add milk and sweetener if desired and serve.

 

Are there any therapeutic benefits associated with drinking Earl Grey tea?

Polyphenols are the main source of antioxidants found in black tea, which can help protect the cells from oxidative damage, however Earl Grey is more often consumed for its beautiful and refreshing taste more so than its directly related health benefits.

What is our packaging made from?

The clear pouch that holds our Earl Grey is not made from plastic. It is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane, which can also easily be home composted and will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use where it will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.
