About Old Growth Earl Grey:

The northern tea region of Ha Giang in Vietnam is home to old growth tea trees also know as ‘Shan Tea’. A pilot project to help preserve these tea forests is underway. We work directly with this project to source this Wild Black. Long, stylish leaves, well crafted into a robust, hearty black tea. The tea is then finished into an Old Growth Earl Grey by adding natural bergamot essence.

Ingredients: Black tea leaves, Natural Bergamot Essence.

Flavor Profile:

Woody, amber-red brew, with mild dryness and fruity finish.
