Our rendition of the world’s most popular blend is made with a light black tea that has sweet notes of caramel, enhanced by the citrus zip of bergamot oil.

Tasting Notes: The base tea in this classic black blend is our single-origin Organic Kumaon Black, a wonderfully balanced black with natural notes of rich caramel and bittersweet cocoa. The bergamot oil, made from the rinds of a small orange-like fruit native to the Mediterranean, builds on the black tea foundation by adding a clean and slightly sour citrus twist. The result is a divinely fresh cuppa that’s great hot or cold. Explore the full line of collaborative blends developed in partnership with the Jasmine Pearl Tea Company.

Recipe Formulation: The key to a good Earl Grey loose-leaf blend is a solid black tea and pure bergamot oil. Our partners at the Jasmine Pearl Tea Company experimented with a variety of our black teas before we settled on the Organic Kumaon Black as the base. Bergamot oil can be intensely aromatic, sometimes bordering on sharp, so it took a few trials to determine the exact amount of essential oil that would lift the rich notes of the black tea without dominating the blend. After several rounds, we landed on this deeply satisfying recipe.

Impact: The goal for our line of blends is to find new ways to showcase the teas made by our Indian and Nepali partners. With this blend, one of our signature black teas from Kumaon, an emerging Himalayan tea region where we started our company, gets a royal citrus treatment, entering the pantheon of the world’s most drunk blends. We know our customers have discerning palates, which is why we chose to partner with our good friends and master blenders at the Jasmine Pearl Tea Company in Portland, Oregon. They are incredibly skilled at selecting herbs and spices to\hat complement and enhance—rather than mask— the base tea’s inherent character and qualities.
