A remarkably heady Earl Grey tempered with wickedly delicious cream flavour. One cup is not enough!
Just when you though another variation of Earl Grey wasnt possible, along comes Organic Cream Earl Grey. Now, before you go thinking were just exploiting the old mans memory to move product, let us explain why weve created this blend. Like all Earl Grey teas its flavored with oil of Bergamot, a stunningly sweet variety of citrus. Next it needs to be said that at the tea company, blending tea is in our souls. As such, when confronted with a fantastic flavor like bergamot we feel compelled - literally compelled - to experiment. First we toss and turn for a few nights racking our brains over what combinations we could try. Then we blend the flavor to within an inch of its life. Cinnamon, vanilla, apples, pomegranates, grapes, every variety of tea from oolong to Pu-Erh is tested. You name it, we try it. Every now and then, like an alchemist turning dirt into gold, our compulsion leads us to a concoction so delicious we decide to release it into the world. Such was the case with Organic Cream Earl Grey.
The magical afternoon when this blend sprang into existence began with the opening of a bag of organic High Grown black tea. Fresh, full bodied and lively, we knew immediately that this would produce something special. Next, we added oil of bergamot and rolled the tea in our flavoring drum. Fantastic. Moments later, someone had the idea to mix fresh cream into the blend for added depth and dimension. As we brewed our first pot, it was as though the planets had aligned and the gods of tea were shining down like the rays of the sun. The cup exhibited a profound depth created by the balance of bergamot and natural astringency of the organic leaf. As if that werent enough, subtly layered under this were the sweet notes of cream. We were in lovewe were in tea heavenwe werewell, we could go on but brewing a pot will help you understand everything.
