As with all our teas, make sure you use freshly boiled fresh water. As soon as it's boiled, pour the water straight over the tea leaves in your teapot and enjoy the fragrance of bergamot and black tea infusing. We'd recommend using one teaspoon per person, and then an extra one for the pot. Tea making can be a lovely ritual if you've got the time, so allow yourself a few moments to steep the leaves properly and release all of their flavour, along with that of the tangy bergamot. According to your taste, 3 to 4 minutes should be sufficient. Philippa, our tea blender, suggests drinking it black to experience to tea's true flavours. Although, as with all Earl Grey teas, a slice of lemon or a touch of milk will also make for a lovely drink.
We've packaged all our Signature Blends teas in specially made tea boxes that reflect the artistry that's gone in to creating this exclusive blend.
