Information:
Just when you though another variation of Earl Grey wasn’t possible, along comes Organic Cream Earl Grey. Now, before you go thinking we’re just exploiting the old man’s memory to move product, let us explain why we’ve created this blend. Like all Earl Grey teas it’s flavored with oil of Bergamot, a stunningly sweet variety of citrus. Next it needs to be said that at the tea company, blending tea is in our souls. As such, when confronted with a fantastic flavor like bergamot we feel compelled - literally compelled - to experiment. First we toss and turn for a few nights racking our brains over what combinations we could try. Then we blend the flavor to within an inch of its life. Cinnamon, vanilla, apples, pomegranates, grapes, every variety of tea from oolong to Pu-Erh is tested. You name it, we try it. Every now and then, like an alchemist turning dirt into gold, our compulsion leads us to a concoction so delicious we decide to release it into the world. Such was the case with Organic Cream Earl Grey.
The magical afternoon when this blend sprang into existence began with the opening of a bag of organic High Grown black tea. Fresh, full bodied and lively, we knew immediately that this would produce something special. Next, we added oil of bergamot and rolled the tea in our flavoring drum. Fantastic. Moments later, someone had the idea to mix fresh cream into the blend for added depth and dimension. As we brewed our first pot, it was as though the planets had aligned and the gods of tea were shining down like the rays of the sun. The cup exhibited a profound depth created by the balance of bergamot and natural astringency of the organic leaf. As if that weren’t enough, subtly layered under this were the sweet notes of cream. We were in love…we were in tea heaven…we were…well, we could go on but brewing a pot will help you understand everything.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character of this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
