This Earl Grey is part of Harney & Sons' line of historical English blends which were created especially for the Historic Royal Palaces of England. A blend of fine black teas, rich in natural Bergamot.
This tea is stronger in body than the Earl Grey Supreme, and the lemony bergamot is stronger than other Earl Greys.
Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, and Kew Palace.
A mixture of black and brown leaves.
The liquor is a clear brown, tending toward russet.
The lemony aroma of bergamot from Italy comes through clearly.
The medium bodied tea is lightened by the addition of oolong tea.
In the later decades of the British Empire, the citrus flavors became synonymous with Earl Grey Tea. This tea is true to that heritage.
