Be sure to steep this tea at the proper temperature. Its silky and smooth, while having some astringency, and a hint of bergamot. A robustly caffienated tea for the morning, it will wake you up!

Earl Grey has been a great English classic ever since Charles Grey, 2nd Earl of Falloden and Foreign Secretary went on to become Prime Minister in 1830. For saving the life of the Chinese Mandarin, he received in gratitude a specially scented tea flavoured with oil of bergamot.
Yunnan is one of the best black teas in the world and with a fresh and delicate bergamot from Calabria, it gives a particularly fine and well balanced blend. An exceptional Earl Grey.

C’est un thé équilibré que j’apprécie plus que le green of london où la bergamote est plus présente. Ici, la bergamote n’écrase pas les notes du thé noir du Yunnan.
Je le prépare à 2g/10cl, 85°C, et je l’infuse au moins 2 fois pendant 3min. C’est mon préféré parmi les earl grey
This is a tea I like against my own choice.
The tea gives off a strong perfume smell, but it doesn’t have a strong perfume, flowery taste. But the aftertaste on the other hand, has a high perfume taste.
I just can’t agree with myself, do I like the perfume taste or not? It’s a tea that wakes me up (and the taste buds). It’s ideal as a lunch/day tea.
It’s a tea I sometimes choose because it’s strong in taste and so unlike other earl grey tea.
I recommend this tea – or do I? It’s an interesting tea, and it will wake you up. But it’s really the first time I have ever labeled a tea interesting. And it is – I find this tea interesting.
