        Earl Grey is a British classic and the most popular tea of the Western world. This citrus-scented tea blend dates back to the 19th century Sino-British trade of opium, tea, and silk. Our Earl Grey Fair Trade tea blends bold-flavored Yunnan Dian Hong harvested from antique tea trees with natural bergamot citrus from southern Italy. Often praised as the best Earl Grey ever, it is the quintessential organic blend of America’s most popular tea.

        Steeping  
Organic Fair Trade Earl Grey Tea
   
         

Water: 212° F (rolling boil)
Leaves: 1 tablespoon of tea per 8 ounces of water
Infusion Time: 4 minutes

Brew with fresh, cold tap water preferably filtered to remove the chlorine. Bottled spring water also works well.

To achieve the best results, use a ceramic or glass pot with an infuser basket. The pot should be large enough to allow the tea leaves full contact with the water, yet not so large as to render a weak cup. A French press, widely popular as a coffee brewer, also functions nicely for tea preparation.

Before adding tea leaves and heated water for steeping, pour hot water into the pot to warm it. Then pour off the water. This step is important since a cold pot can reduce water temperature 10-15°, thus making it difficult for tea to steep properly and to produce a quality cup. 

China black teas can be prepared with a large amount of tea leaves, resulting in full flavor and fine body. Measure out 1 tablespoon or 3 grams of tea per 8 ounces of water to begin with. For a stronger cup, increase the tea and slightly reduce the steeping time. Using the proper amount of leaves should allow for a second steeping.

Steep the tea for 4 minutes. Be certain to pour out all of the first infusion so that the leaves don't continue to steep. For a second steeping, infuse for 30-60 seconds.
