Earl Grey Tea – The Smooth Operator

Madura’s Earl Grey Tea is a smooth operator, capable of mixing it with any crowd. Its full bodied aromatic flavour and lingering floral notes have satisfied tea drinkers singing its praises everywhere from backyard barbecues to high end tea parties. In a throwback to its aristocratic namesake, Earl Grey is a sophisticated and charismatic tea that can turn on the charm anywhere!
Infused with the aroma of bergamot oil – a citrus fruit native to Calabria in Italy – Earl Grey tea has an iconic scent as fragrant as its taste. A cup of Earl Grey is truly a sensory experience, and is celebrated around the world for its zesty burst of vitality and flavour. Author Fennel Hudson once announced, “I like tea so much that I’m considering changing my name to Bergamot so I can exist in a perpetual state of Earl Grey contentment”. Now, that’s appreciation!
When you drink any cup of tea, you’re getting double the goodness: A delicious tasting beverage with the added bonus of health and wellbeing. Like all tea, Earl Grey delivers a host of health benefits, but the addition of sweet-smelling bergamot to its antioxidant-rich leaves packs an extra potent punch of wellbeing.
