Gopaldhara Darjeeling Earl Grey
$7.21 / 250 gms standup pouch
This Earl Grey blend is named after the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in 1830. This tea blend has a distinctive flavor and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of bergamot orange. Citrus bergamia or bergamot orange is a fragrant citrus fruit the size of an orange. It has a yellow or green color similar to lime depending on the ripeness.
Traditionally, the term ‘Earl Grey’ has been applied only to black teas that contain oil of bergamot as a flavoring. This Earl Grey from Darjeeling is balanced with a sweet Muscatel character along with prominent fruity flavors.
