Black Tea – Made from the oxidized leaves of the green tea (Camellia sinensis) plant, black tea is one of the most widely enjoyed teas and beverages on the planet. Smoky and strong-flavored, it contains more caffeine than its close tea counterparts (green, white, oolong) and can give you a much-needed lift to start your day, comparable to coffee. Tea leaves are highly rich in polyphenols, antioxidants shown to help reduce cancer risk, lower chances of cardiovascular disease, forestall obesity, and more—as shown in studies.
Bergamot – A classic Earl Grey wouldn’t be Earl Grey without bergamot. Traditionally, oils extracted from this exotic citrus were always included in these tea formulas. We honor this tradition today with our own signature nod and tribute to the time-honored beverage. Considered a combination of grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange in one fruit, bergamot’s flavors burst forth like a melodic harmony to black tea’s richer, deeper background notes.
Calendula Petals – Calendula’s bright orange blossoms beautifully accentuate this otherwise dark-colored tea. A member of the marigold family, its smooth floral flavor and fragrance equally round out black tea’s depth with bergamot’s sharpness, tying it all together for a breathtaking brew.
For a deliciously straightforward tea (or classic occasion), bring fresh cold water to a boil. Pour over 1-2 teaspoons of tea leaves for every 8 ounces of water. Steep 3-4 minutes and enjoy while still piping hot, but sip-able (or drinkable).
