Green Earl Grey Tea: Britain’s favourite speciality tea in a healthy green form
Our Green Earl Grey Tea is made with fresh-tasting green tea that is low in caffeine. Traditionally scented with oil of bergamot and using a base of China green tea our Green Earl Grey is not too heavily flavoured. Light and refreshing, it is a favourite among our customers. Use one teaspoon per person. Infuse for three minutes with freshly boiled water that has come off the boil for a couple of minutes.
“Great Earl grey flavour with green tea “Bergamot seems to work so much better with green tea, and these teas are hard to find. This one is lovely…”
“Light and delicate. This has all the distinctive flavour of bergamot you would expect from an Earl Grey but without the robust tea flavour coming through. It is pale, delicate, light and refreshing. Definitely one to try if you are looking for a lower caffeine drink.”
“A perfectly balanced tea. This is an excellent introduction to green teas and a great evening blend also.”
“This tea is light, fragrant and refreshing. It’s a lovely pale yellow-green and has a really nice cleansing effect on the mouth. The tea has a slightly sweet note and the bergamot just sort of ‘floats’ as a subtle note, rather than a major flavour. I think that this blend suits the more delicate nature of the green tea. I think that green tea is slightly lighter beverage than the good old robust black tea. This is lovely. A rather special tea.”
“Delicious! I’d never tried Green Earl Grey tea before, but will definitely be buying it again.
A delicious, refreshing cup of tea.”
“My Favourite. I have drunk Earl Grey tea for years now, but since I tried this green version I hardly drink anything else anymore. It is like normal black Earl Grey but it is also a totally different and more refreshing flavour. I recommend it to everyone.”
