Earl Grey big leaf tea has mild, tender taste, whereas small leaf tea gives strong, rich brew. This exquisite tea became popular in England at the Prime Minister Earl Charles Grey II, when English diplomats brought him a recipe of flavouring tea with Bergamot oil (citrus fruit) as a present from the Chinese Mandarin. It became fashionable to serve Earl Grey’s tea in the afternoon in the best households of England.

time to do a full review:

when i open the tin, the aroma hits me fast and strong! the leaves smell like the citrusy part of an orange with strong lavender. (i think its lavender) and ground pepper

it is a little difficult to put into a tea ball.

it steeps fast too. less that 30 seconds is good for me

when i taste it, it tastes just like it smells! :)

a great black tea!
