Description: Perfect for a picnic. During China's Ming Dynasty tea artisans experimented with buds and blossoms, imbuing the leaves with essential oils. Roses were among the very first flowers they tried.
The addition of roses and bergamot enhances the balance of flavours in this luxury black tea blend for a delicious delightful flavour. The citrusy taste in our Earl Grey comes from the addition of natural organic bergamot oil. 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.
Serving Suggestion: Liza drinks this black, Adam likes to add milk and sugar. For iced drinks brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour.
Totally delicious! Verified Purchase
I decant mine from the huge bag into a small cardboard container that held my first purchase. I do find that, as I get down to the last servings, the rose flavour is very much diminished.

It is absolutely delicious and I am completely addicted
I have always enjoyed Earl Grey tea but this is in a completely different league.
