NEW Greys Monument - Loose Leaf Black Tea
A twist on the classic taste, this black tea sourced from Ethical Tea Partnership tea plantations in central Sri Lanka is the perfect start for a relaxing afternoon. Hand blended and packed by our Tea Enthusiast team in County Durham, UK, this blend uses the finest organic bergamot oil from Italy which gives a beautiful citrusy taste. The bergamot orange is a type of aromatic citrus fruit that is usually grown in the Mediterranean. Bergamot oil is extracted from the skin of the bergamot fruit, we have been sourcing ours from the same farm for over a decade.
We also add blue cornflower petals for a floral hint. Pairs well with savoury foods and sweets, especially scones and biscuits! Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy free and sugar-free this tea can be enjoyed without milk and sugar, or with your favourite additions.
Earl Grey tea is the most British of drinks. So much so that its alleged namesake is the British Prime Minister of the time. There are several apocryphal tales as to how and why Earl Grey came to be named after a British Prime Minister, was it in thanks for removing the monopoly of the East India Company on importing tea from China? The mystery surrounding the origin of this tea only adds to its allure.
Serving Suggestion: Adrien enjoys this tea with a drop of milk and a sprinkle of sugar. Holly enjoys it plain.
For iced drinks either cold brew overnight or brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour.
