Earl Grey teas, traditionally, were blends comprised of varying black teas with Bergamot oil added to them. Today, any tea (green, white, herbal) that is sprayed with Bergamot oil is known as Earl Grey (such as our Emerald Green Earl Grey, and Rooibos Earl Grey.).
This organic Rooibos Earl Grey blend has become a favorite of Earl Grey lovers who don’t want caffeine. We’ve combined organic rooibos and natural bergamot oil to create an aromatic “tea” that has a deep amber cup and a full-bodied, full flavored taste.
Bergamot oil comes from the rind of the bergamot orange, which grows on the citrus tree Citrus bergamia. The oil expressed from the rind is used, in addition to making Earl Grey tea blends, quite frequently in the cosmetic industry (in soaps, lotions, oils and perfumes).
Earl Grey tea is a favorite with bakers in many culinary recipes. It goes especially well with cakes, cookies, confections and any recipe with chocolate!
