Classic Assam orthodox black loose leaf tea is laced with bergamot oil to make this blend just the way Lord Grey, after which this blend is named, loved his tea! Earl Grey Tea typically is a tea made from loose black tea leaves infused with the essence of
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) which gives a brusque citrusy twist to the tea.
Since it received its nickname from the then British Prime Minister Earl Grey, bergamot tea
is often considered very English. However, it is consumed all across the globe today.
This citrusy brew is said to help manage stress and make it easier to get to sleep.
When brewed, bergamot may also have a relieving effect on digestive issues such
as stomach cramps and spasms.
Bergamot essential oil is also said to soothe skin irritations.
