"Earl Grey" was named after the British Prime Minister of the day , Charles Grey. The distinctive taste is created by infusing black tea with the oil of the bergamot orange.
At TanLong Tea, we insist only use the highest grade tea leaves for tea making! This Earl Grey is made with all-natural (one tea bud and two leaves) full leaf Black Tea from Yunnan(Birth Place of Tea) blend with the English Breakfast Black Teas, infused with natural Bergamot oil.
The Tea soup itself is very strong and very long lasting; the colour is still rich after multiple infusions.
This black tea's liquor is bright in amber colour, exhibits a floral scent and sweet chestnut taste.
Cheaper varieties of black tea produce a darker liquor and can be very bitter.This black tea is made of the old big leaf tea trees, which contain richer content of polyphenol, contributes to the strong aromatic taste. It doesn't turn bitter even after a long steep.

Ms.D: "Big thanks to my girl Vicky, a super lovely Tea Sommelier for sharing the custom blend Earl Grey tea🍵. You really know my taste!! Unlike most of the earl grey teas on the market made with low-end Indian mass production CTC black Tea sprayed with Bergamot flavor. She used all-natural (one tea bud and two leaves) full leaf black tea from Yunnan province, infused with natural Bergamot oil. I just couldn't stop shaking the box because the strength of the Bergamot scent makes me feel like I am in heaven! Very long lasting, colour is still rich after multiple infusions. Love it!
