This is a twist on the outstanding, traditional, favourite . It’s a tickety-boo Ceylon black tea blended with vanilla & the rind of bergamot (a distinctive, fragrant, orange-like citrus fruit). One would imagine Earl Charles Grey, The Prime Minister of England (1830-1834) would be pleased to see his signature tea make a comeback with such finesse.
An exquisite balance of sweet, honey notes infused with the gentle citrus of the bergamot oils. A bold tipple toned down with a delectable creamy taste.
