Organic black tea leaves blended with essence of bergamot. The most popular tea in the Western Hemisphere, Earl Grey is named after Lord Charles Grey, the British Prime Minister from 1830 to 1834. Our version of this famed classic is as good as it gets.
Ever tried our London Fog? It’s our Earl Grey tea steeped in half steamed milk and half boiling water, sweetened with raw sugar and vanilla. It is a staple at our Davis Islands store. At the request of our customers, we created a ‘Do It Yourself” kit for making the perfect London Fog at home, complete with TeBella’s signature recipe.
Our Earl Grey is created using a black tea base (as is traditional Earl Grey). Black tea is what most Westerners associate with traditional tea. It comes from the same tea plant (Camellia Sinensis) as all other forms of tea; however, unlike any other type, it is fully oxidized. Shortly after harvest the tea leaves are rolled to release the enzymes present in the leaf that trigger oxidation. After oxidation is complete, the leaves are dried and then sorted. Black teas produce a darker liquor than white, green or oolong teas and a bolder, more assertive flavor.
For a Casablanca Earl Grey, try blending Earl Grey with our Moroccan Mint green tea. Earl Grey is incredibly versatile–so much so that we hardly know where to begin when it comes to food pairings. During dinner, pair Earl Grey with dishes featuring beef, pork or game. For a cheese course, pair it with a strong cheese, like blue stilton. For dessert, try it with chocolate or creme brulee. We love pairing Earl Grey with dark chocolate French macarons. It simply doesn’t get any better.
We recommend steeping Earl Grey for 3 minutes at 195°.
