Earl Grey Tea is a black tea blend with a distinctive flavor and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, a fragrant citrus fruit. This results in a bright, tart, and refreshing tea, unlike other black teas, that is very popular in the Western world. Coffee drinkers have been known to more easily switch over to tea with Earl Grey tea. We enjoy Earl Grey in the morning as a pick-me-up. It is very smooth and aromatic. This is one of our favorites.
