Earl Grey tea with bergamot from France: an essential tea

The name of this tea comes from an English Earl, Charles Grey, who lived between the 18th and 19th centuries. In English, Earl is called "Earl".

According to the most widespread legend, the Earl Charles Grey went to China for a diplomatic trip. During his stay, he was offered a black tea in which one of his Chinese servants added bergamot. However, some claim that the Earl never set foot in China and that the tea was actually a gift from a Chinese ambassador when Earl Grey was Prime Minister of England.

Whatever the history of Earl Grey bergamot tea, today we have the chance to drink it. It is a very popular tea in England, although it is now appealing to the taste buds of tea lovers far beyond the British borders.

This delicious product is a blend of Yunnan black tea and Ceylon black tea (the old name for Sri Lanka) with the addition of bergamot essential oil.

Bergamot is the fruit of the bergamot tree, which looks like a cross between an orange and a lime. Very much used in tea, it is also found in the famous bergamots of Nancy, a confectionery, but also in the eau de Cologne or in the madeleines of Commercy.

Earl Grey bergamot tea from France: from the plantation to the cup

Coming from Yunnan or Ceylon, black tea is an oxidized tea. From the plantation to the cup, it undergoes several transformations to offer you an exceptional tea.

After plucking, the tea leaves are placed on racks in the heat for an average of one day. This is the withering phase. Then, the leaves are rolled and placed in an oxidation room to reduce the humidity level of this tea.

Earl Grey black tea finishes its transformation with a drying stage which consists of heating the leaves to reach a very low humidity level, around 5%.
