Flavoured with the natural oils of bergamot, this strong, black decaffeinated loose leaf tea creates a wonderful Earl Grey, full of delicate notes and a wholly unique aroma.
Our Earl Grey Decaffeinated Tea is naturally decaffeinated using CO2.
Earl Grey tea gets its wonderful flavour and aroma from the addition of oil of bergamot, extracted from the rinds of bergamot oranges (Citrus bergamia). This citrus fruit is a cross between a lemon, lime and a bitter orange and is green or yellow in colour; they are grown commercially in Calabria, Italy.
Earl Grey Decaffeinated tea should be prepared using freshly boiled water; filtered tap water or bottled spring water are the best options. Use one teaspoon (5 ml) of Earl Grey Decaffeinated loose tea leaves for every 200 ml of water. Allow the leaves to steep at temperatures between 90 ºC (194 ºF) to 95º C (203 ºF) for 2-3 minutes. Take care not to infuse for too long as tannins in the tea may overcome its delicate flavour. Earl Grey tea is often enjoyed black, but it may be taken with a little milk, and the addition of sugar, honey or lemon if desired.
