Assam black tea and oil of bergamot dance beautifully together. Oil of Bergamot is an essential oil extracted from the bergamot orange. Some folks have called us to say this is the best Earl Grey tea they've ever tasted ... we agree!
Small tea co-op location:
Nine small-scale tea growers in Assam, India are growing tea organically and processing their own tea in their gardens. Their organic gardens are a haven for birds and microorganisms and their entrepreneurship is inspiring.
Farmer Profile: The tea growers process tea by hand, and dry in small facilities in each tea garden. Each tea garden employs between 5 and 20 labourers.
Direct Fair Trade Premiums: Premiums for tea go entirely to the labourers and the decision as to what the money put towards is determined by the labourers in an open meeting. Historically, premiums have gone towards water filtration for each home and piglets to raise and sell for profit.
Flavour Profile: Golden and full-flavoured.
Description: A classic cup of Earl Grey made with our orthodox black tea and oil of bergamot.
Serving Tips: Use 1 heaping tablespoon for 500ml of boiling water. Brew it a little stronger to enjoy with milk and sugar.
