Special Earl Grey

Put simply Earl Grey is black tea flavoured with bergamot which is a small lemon-like citrus fruit. There are many stories about the origin of the Earl Grey blend ranging from a mix up of cargoes at sea to Earl Grey himself preferring the taste when it was brewed with the local water at that time. Whatever the truth is, it's clear black tea tastes very good with subtle bergamot flavouring.

Our Special Earl Grey is based on Indian tea and has an intensely fresh flavour.

Morning Dew

Based on a Japanese Sencha, Morning Dew combine the classic grassy taste of Sencha with subtle touches of mango and bergamot. An ideal tea for anyone wishing to start with green tea and avoid the bitterness found in many teabags. Japanese green tea is steamed to stop the oxidisation process seen in black teas. This results in dark green tea leaves and a bright green cup colour once brewed.
