A blend of Keemun leaves, low-grown Ceylon, and the subtle flavours of bergamont and grapefruit
Having pioneered the blend, only Twinings? Earl Greys carry the seal of approval from the Earl and family. A delicious interpretation of the classic style, I start by creating an exquisite base to allow the signature flavours to spring to life. High quality Keemun leaves from Anhui Province in Eastern China bring smooth, slightly smoky notes, with low-grown Ceylon giving the tea its golden hue.
To enhance the base, the flavour of bergamot is added. Floral and zesty, it lends the tea its fragrance and citrus flavour. A dash of grapefruit adds an original and delightful touch that lifts the citrus flavour and adds depth to the refreshing qualities of the tea.
This Earl Grey is best enjoyed either straight, with a slice of lemon or just a splash of milk. A delicious afternoon pick-me-up, this delicate blend is an indispensable part of the quintessential afternoon tea.
