Product Description

Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus bergamot fruit - a sort of orange.

What type of tea do we use, how do we flavour the tea and why do we use natural flavors?

Firstly... we only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavourful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavour notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of our flavoured teas. (We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our flavoured teas, but none of these teas made the grade.) Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This ‘dual peak period’ allow us to buy the best for our flavoured tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness.

Secondly... We use flavouring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat.

Thirdly... We specify natural flavours. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavours, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavours do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavours tend to be somewhat ‘soft’ and the flavours slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavoured teas.

Well, I've been buying tea bags for years and to be honest got kind of sick of the same old crap which while packaged differently all taste the same. Well a present of a teapot for Christmas got me thinking and I bought some real tea. In a nutshell, there is no contest. This tea is absolutely delightful. So light, so flavourful, so refreshing. I add a wee tea spoonful for each person and then one for the pot. The funny thing is,after my first use and washing the pot out, I noticed that the tea leaves still carried a strong aroma , so the next time, I used them for a second brew and the tea was just as strong.

Most impressed with real tea, it appears in our haste for brevity, (via use of tea bags) we have thrown out with the dish water , what tea should really taste like. Ironically brewing a pot of tea via the use of loose tea leaves is a lot quicker than using tea bags.

Word of warning, if you do buy loose tea be careful how much you put in the pot, it expands something awful in hot water. What at first sight seems like an inconsequential amount of tea, quickly expands into a huge amount.

I for one will never go back to tea bags and their bland offerings.

I bought this after being told that loose leaf tea is much better than the crappy teabags you get from tesco. And you know what.. It is. this tea has a very nice smell, it looks good too, The flavor is 1000x better than tesco earl grey, highly recommended.

Tastes exactly as it should in packets with ties that help to preserve the flavour and with a rapid service.

Used to using normal teabags like Twinings Earl Grey but this stuff is just a revelation!
The first thing ou notice is the remarkable aroma when you open the bag; if they could make an air freshener our of this stuff I'd buy nothing else! Citrusy with a deep tea aroma; in fact just amazingly aromatic.
As with a lot of real teas (especially those not ground up to a powder like in teabags) you can reuse the tea two or even three times with pretty much the same taste each time (tradition has it that the second infusion actually is the best).
I use a little infusion teapot (built in strainer thing) and two heaped teaspoons makes 3 good mugs of tea.
For the price it really is worth at least trying!

Normally I'm a tea bag user but love Earl Grey tea and not find the flavour of bags rewarding. This is a wonderful tea with a beautiful but fresh flavour. Will definately be back for more
