K.O.A

This popular flavored tea has its roots in 1830s Great Britain. As the legend goes, the British Prime Minister Earl Grey II had rescued the young son of a Chinese Mandarin from drowning (or the son of an Indian Rajah from a tiger, depending on who’s telling the story). The grateful father brought him a gift of tea flavored with oil of bergamot, extracted from the rind of bergamot oranges.

The bergamot orange is not orange! Its skin is green in color and it is shaped like a pear. Bergamot oranges are almost exclusively grown in Italy. Probably more than you needed to know about the essential flavoring that makes Earl Grey tea so special, but there it is!

This tea is sold loose leaf, meaning it will not arrive packed in tea bags.
