Fair Trade Certified™ organic Assam black tea, organic bergamot.
Bring the wisest of waters to a boil and ease over a bag of Aged Earl Grey. Steep 4-5 minutes. This tea is strong enough to handle milk, yet mild enough to be served alone. For iced tea, steep 2 tea bags, cool and pour over ice.

The top two leaves and bud of the tea leaf are rolled, bruised and crushed, allowing the leaf to fully oxidize and transform to a deep coppery color. The Assam black tea is then layered with real Italian Bergamot for several weeks so the tea absorbs the orange scent.
