Our organic Earl Grey Shanghai uses a Yunnan black tea base for a traditional yet intoxicatingly smooth flavor. Large, well-oxidized leaves and silver tips hold a full, classic bergamot aroma. The garnet brew goes beyond basic bergamot in its aroma to include undertones of tobacco and cocoa. The flavor is smooth, pure and classic, making Earl Grey Shanghai a perfect candidate for those who enjoy a touch of sugar or drop of honey in their tea. A subtle undertone of chocolate fades into a mellow, fruity aftertaste in this decadently satiny blend.

One taste will tell you why Earl Grey Shanghai is one of our best sellers.
