Selecting “CTC” grade leaves for their quick, full-bodied extraction, we have followed the 1800’s recipe for making Earl Grey: black tea leaves rolled in the oil of Bergamot. Our black tea is always the feature “quick-infusion” black and the oil is FCF (non carcinogenic) and from bergamot wild-harvested in the Italian Alps. Fragmented tea is often looked down on by tea enthusiasts, but stored well and brewed properly, it delivers, and delivers quickly.
A deliberate over-extraction using 4g of leaves for 3:30m goes well with milk and sugar. But try it pure.
