1. What is Earl Grey Tea?
Earl Grey Tea is a blend of black tea and bergamot essential oil. It was created in 1830 by accident after the Second Earl Grey presented his specially requested tea to King George IV. The fragrance of bergamot (a fruit similar to orange) outshone the flavor of the tea itself, becoming the defining characteristic of Earl Grey's flavor profile. Earl Grey has since become one of LadyGrey London's best-selling teas!
2. What does Bergamot smell like?
Bergamot is an oily citrus fruit that emits a sweet aroma with fresh top notes which are predominantly flowery; this gives it its distinctive 'tea' note. This makes it ideal for blending with certain black teas. It also makes a delicious and refreshing iced tea!
3. Is it true that Earl Grey goes better with milk than with lemon?
Traditionally an Earl Grey blend contains bergamot essential oil (organic citrus oil) and black tea leaves ( Camellia sinensis ). When adding milk to your tea, you are changing the flavor profile of the drink. So if you like a milky Earl Grey then go for it! Some people also like to add lemon slices or honey to their Earl Grey tea.
4. What are the health benefits of drinking Earl Grey Tea?
The health benefits of drinking Earl Grey black tea, in general, include weight loss, reduced risk of heart disease, and improved brain function. Bergamot oil is also known to have some great health benefits such as reducing stress levels, boosting the immune system, and aiding with digestion.
5. How do I make Earl Grey Tea?
Fill a pot with fresh cold water. Add 1 teaspoon Earl Grey tea (about 3~4 g) and place the pot over high heat until it boils. Immediately remove from the heat to avoid scalding the tea leaves, and set aside for 2 - 3 minutes before serving. Serve hot or iced as you prefer!
Another way is, Simply to soak 1 teaspoon of Earl Grey tea leaves in 8 oz. of hot water for 3-5 minutes then serve. The water temperature is about 80 degrees Celsius. Pour in some rocks glasses and enjoy your Earl Grey Tea with a bit of honey or sugar.
NOTE: The strength of your Earl Grey Tea depends on how long you allow the tea leaves to steep in the hot water. Experiment to find what suits your taste best!
6 . Why do some Earl Grey Teas have large open leaves?
Great question - it's all down to how much bergamot oil is infused into them! When we first created our unique blend, we made sure that each part of the process was just perfect - from the tea leaves, to the water and of course, the bergamot oil. We use only the finest quality bergamot oil which is cold-pressed from oranges that are grown in Calabria, Italy. This ensures that our Earl Grey Tea has a wonderful aromatic flavor and aroma.
