♦ Product Description:
Twinings of London Classics Earl Grey Loose Tea - A light & aromatic blend of fine black tea, scented with a citrus bergamot flavour.
Light Flavour Strength
The story goes that Earl Grey, the Georgian prime minister, was given cases of this tea by a Chinese Mandarin. He liked it so much he brought it home and asked Twinings to recreate it for him. And that's what we've been doing ever since.
Light, fragrant and with a distinctive bergamot flavour, our Earl Grey still has all the taste of the original. And we like to think it's still the best.
Black tea, Bergamot flavouring
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per person and 1 for the pot (or 1 spoon in a cup with a strainer)
Steep for 3 to 5 minutes (or to your taste) - as a rule: the smaller the leaf, the faster the brew
This light, delicately citrus tea is best drunk without milk (a slice of lemon is great) or with just a touch of milk and for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!
