Our Royal Earl Grey tea stands head and shoulders above its regular Earl Grey subjects. It is built on a base of exceptional whole leaf Ceylon tea which is scented with natural Bergamot Oil (extracted from the rind of the Bergamot orange) and embellished with cornflowers to create a truly regal Earl Grey. The full bodied Ceylon leaf hits it off perfectly with the citrus notes, giving a delightfully refreshing cup.
