Chalk up another winner for Two Leaves and a Bud. The tea is fresh, the beautiful tea bag is full of leaf and you can feel good knowing it is organic.
Two Leaves and a Bud describes this tea as:
Our Earl Grey starts with a great quality, organic large leaf, sweet Black Tea (not “blending teas”) from Ceylon (Sri Lanka). We add just a hint of pure bergamot oil to create the famous Earl Grey taste. There are many legends of how Earl Grey came into being. Our favorite is that the Earl had a shipment of tea that also picked up bergamot oranges. Tea absorbs flavors and odors and this shipment did just that. It was a huge success on the market and… a legend was born.
One thing about this tea is that it is very strong. I didn’t leave the tea bag in for as long as was suggested, because I don’t like very strong tea, and it was plenty good for me. When I say strong, I mean just that. It doesn’t have any bitter taste, it just tastes like Earl Grey concentrate. (Keep in mind I am a black tea wimp and if you like a good cup of strong black tea, you will probably find this milder than I do.)
