Earl Grey Black Tea
Earl Grey Bravo is a classic blend of artisan black tea from Sri Lanka, flavored with bergamot (a citrus fruit). The perfect afternoon tea: zesty and exhilarating fresh citrus aroma, slightly dry to the nose, with a rounded and balanced orange rind flavor to match the tang of Ceylon black tea. Our Earl Grey Bravo benefits from a pleasantly dry finish with a lingering citrus sweetness.

What is in Your Cup
Blended With Black Tea, Orange, Natural Bergamot Flavor & Blue Cornflowers. It is said that in 1830, an Englishman named Charles Earl Grey traveled on a diplomatic mission to China, where in return for his act of kindness, a local man presented him with the recipe for making this distinctive tea. A few corrections are in order. Firstly, the Chinese have never been black tea drinkers and were unlikely to have a recipe for Earl Grey to bestow on visitors. Secondly, Charles Earl Grey never set foot in China. Otherwise, the story is completely true.
