Earl Grey Tea is one of the most widely drunk teas in the world. Its distinct flavour is a result of combining high quality Chinese black tea and oil of bergamot, originally used to protect the flavour from mould and tar during long sea voyages. This beautifully scented tea with its flowery and citrusy flavour remains the embodiment of the finest English tea.

Taste: A lovely balance between a refreshing and bright keemun tea, citrus notes and oil of bergamot

Aroma: Elegant, well balanced oil of bergamont aroma with underlying citrus notes

Infusion: Medium bodied copper colour with a bright sheen

Originates from Anhui Province

Loose leaf tea:

We would recommend putting one teaspoon of tea per cup into an infuser or filter and then add freshly boiled water. For a pot of tea, always add one teaspoon of tea for the pot and one teaspoon for each person. The length of brewing time can vary according to an individual’s taste but we would recommend the following:

Brewing Temperature: 100°C 

Brewing Time: 3 minutes


Tea pouch: Ideally, use one tea pouch per cup. Add boiling hot water and allow to brew for 3 minutes.

These are our various handmade packaging options:

    Camellia’s Earl Grey is simply perfect. I love it so much, I spare no expense to ship it to my home in the States. So many Earl Greys lack the proper balance – this one is spot on.
