The original Earl Grey tea was named after Charles Grey, Second Earl Grey in the 18th Century. At that time it consisted only of Chinese teas, flavoured with finest bergamot oil (citrus plant). Today we can combine this classical flavour with fine, mild and sweetish redbush tea. Even the convinced Earl Grey drinker should have a try. You will be surprised how wonderfully the bergamot aroma develops on the redbush base. Refined with lemon peel, the freshness also shows in the appearance.
Ingredients: Rooibos tea, lemon peel, natural bergamot flavour with other natural flavouring
