How do you make Earl Grey blend?

To create an Earl Grey blend, black tea leaves are infused with bergamot oil. This process varies slightly depending on the additional flavors being included, such as Rose petals, Lavender, or extra citrus, to create unique variations.

What blends well with Earl Grey?

Earl Grey is versatile and pairs well with a variety of flavors including vanilla, which softens its robust edges, or citrus elements that enhance its bright notes. Floral herbs like lavender can also complement the bergamot's floral characteristics.

Are you supposed to put milk in Earl Grey?

Yes, you can enjoy Earl Grey with milk, which softens its robust citrus flavors, although many purists prefer it black to fully appreciate the bergamot's fragrance.

Why is Earl Grey tea so good?

Earl Grey has a distinct flavor profile that balances the deep, rich notes of black tea with the bright, aromatic qualities of bergamot oil. This makes it both refreshing and comforting, ideal for any time of day.

Who should not take citrus bergamot?

Individuals on certain medications, particularly those affecting cholesterol, should avoid citrus bergamot as it can interact with these drugs. Always consult with a healthcare provider if unsure.
