A well balanced Earl Grey created in the Azores using only Bergamot oil and Azores Pekoe Black Tea. Smooth and well refined without any bitterness or astringency, Azores Earl Grey is a throwback to 'proper' Earl Greys when only Bergamot oil was added to the tea.
We are proud to source all our teas from The Azores direct from Gorreana Tea Estate, famed for being Europe's oldest tea estate having been setup in 1883. Gorreana Tea Estate are dedicated to producing premium quality loose leaf tea without the use of any pesticides or chemicals.
