“Smells like bergamot, but does not taste much like it. Beautiful tea base. Very good tea, though not earl grey enough for me.” Read full tasting note
“This tea is even more beautiful than it is tasty.. And it’s not bad to taste either! ;-) It didn’t to my favorites of black gold teas but it’s a good one.” Read full tasting note
“This is quite possible the best Earl Grey tea I have ever tasted! A beautiful, richly flavored base tea blended with just the right amount of bergamot. Smooth enough to drink straight, but even...” Read full tasting note
“This is one of the best teas I have ever seen. The bergamot flavour along with the malty taste of the tea creates an impeccable combination that is a must-try.” Read full tasting note


Earl Gold is a beautiful example of what happens when classic tea and passion for exceptional balance and quality come together. The goal for this tea was to create an Earl Grey with a high quality gold bud Yunnan black as the base…one that would be designed for gong fu brewing but also hold up to western style with milk and sugar. I started with the well-loved Golden Snail and paired it with pure cold-pressed oil of bergamot before aging for 30 days. The balance of this blend is remarkable, with the base tea shining through and the bergamot ever-present. Every steep of Earl Gold brings forth a new dimension of malt, cocoa, and citrus notes with a strong natural sweetness and incredible heady aroma. I highly recommend enjoying Earl Gold gong fu style to fully experience the beauty of this blend!
