What truly makes Earl Grey unique is its blend of bergamot flavor and black tea. Bergamot oranges are grown in Calabria, Italy, and parts of France. The fruit more closely resembles limes in appearance. The flavor of bergamot oranges is a blend of a variety of citrus fruits. It looks like a cross between an orange and lime but tastes more like grapefruit or lemon. The bergamot orange tree is believed to be a hybrid of the orange tree native to Seville and the lemon tree native to Southeast Asia. The resulting citrusy and chocolate flavors make this tea a delight in the morning and at night. It is famously associated with royals and a staple at high-profile events.
Traditionally, Earl Grey was made from black teas such as Chinese Keemun, and therefore intended to be drunk without milk. However, over time, stronger teas were used as the base for Earl Grey, which makes it stronger suited to the addition of milk or cream. Basilur's Earl Grey collection is made with 100% Pure Ceylon Tea & all-natural flavors, which makes our range of Earl Grey's unique and more flavourful. Due to the process Basilur follows, the freshest tea of Ceylon are used for these teas delivering the distinctive characteristics of Premium Ceylon tea.
A unique feature of Earl Grey tea is the ability to be used in food recipes. This tea is used as a flavoring for many types of cakes and confectionery, such as chocolates, as well as savory sauces. For sauces, the flavor is normally created by adding tea bags to the basic stock, boiling for a few minutes, and then discarding the bags. For sweet recipes, loose tea is often added to melted butter or hot cream and strained after the flavor is infused.
