French Earl Grey

0/5

French Earl Grey, or French Earl Grey, is a delicious variation on the well-known classic black Earl Gray tea.

Earl Grey is a black tea blend with bergamot oil. Bergamot is a small citrus fruit that can be placed not only in flavour but also in size between lemon and lime.

Bergamot oil gives a fresh sweet and sour citrus flavour to the tea with a slightly bitter note. By adding rose blossom, the French Earl Grey is created.

The rose blossom gives a refined, floral and mildly sweet taste to the tea, which combines wonderfully with the sweet and acidic bergamot.

It is not entirely clear where Earl Gray's recipe originally came from. Legend has it that, in 1830, Earl Gray received a black tea with bergamot from Chinese diplomats in gratitude.

However, it is not until 50 years later that the tea is actually advertised as Earl Gray to the wider public. At that time, bergamot was often added to mask the lesser taste of lower quality teas.

Tasting notes French Earl Grey

Flavour notes French Earl Grey

Our French Earl Grey has a soft Ceylon base complemented with fresh sweet and sour bergamot flavour and floral overtones.

The Ceylon used contains little tannin. This makes the tea not bitter, even after a long brewing time.

Brewing advice French Earl Grey

For 1 cup of tea you need 1 teaspoon of French Earl Grey. Use a tea infuser or tea filter to brew the tea.

Then let it steep for 3-5 minutes at 95ºC.
