A blend of fine Ceylon black tea with Italian bergamot oil - A floral, bright & elegant brew. The leaves of this classic Earl Grey are a wiry, elegant length, that is delicious with an almost oaky exquisite taste and full body that's bright, elegant with character and strength.
Harvested from the renowned Harrington Estate in Kotagala. Perched at 4,412 ft. on a mountain range in the central Sri Lankan region of Dimbula, famous for the smooth mellow character of its tea considered by connoisseurs as the “Bordeaux” of fine Ceylon teas.
Harrington Estate is in the prestigious Hatton area of misty mountain ranges and verdant valleys. Here the rains of the monsoon seasons nurture a high quality of tea the industry acclaims as strong yet light, delicate and fragrant. In addition to the monsoons, the Harrington Estate experiences the dry winds that fan across the valleys and slopes of mountainous Dimbula where the days are bright and dry. All-weather anomalies that contribute to the complexity and intriguing flavour profile that can only develop when the tea plant undergoes this natural conditioning between rain and drought.
