Steenbergs Organic Fairtrade Earl Grey Tea is a deliciously light and fragrant classically scented organic black tea.  Steenbergs Earl Grey tea comes from the Greenfield organic Tea Estate (the old estate name was Thotulagala) which lies between 5000ft and 6000ft above sea level in the Uva Highlands in central Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is a jewel of a tropical island, located just above the equator with perfect growing conditions for organic Fairtrade tea, the climate is temperate, but rainy. Uva tea is regarded by the Japanese as the best of all Ceylon teas and we tend to agree.

It produces a pale liquor with a slightly astringent taste that works very well with the flowery Bergamot flavour. Steenbergs Organic loose leaf Earl Grey uses Greenfield organic Fairtrade Orange Pekoe grade tea leaves as its base, which compliments the sweet, citrus flavour of bergamot oil. We only use 100% organic bergamot oil for flavouring. The story is that in 1830 the second Earl Grey was presented with the recipe for this tea during a diplomatic mission to China.

Steenbergs Organic Fairtrade Earl Grey is delicious and packed full of flavour on its own or served with sugar and/or milk or lemon. Steenbergs Organic Earl Grey is also Fairtrade - we pay a premium for the social welfare on the tea estate for the 770 people on the Greenfield Tea Estate. Go to About FAIRTRADE for more information on where the Fairtrade premium goes at Greenfield Tea Estate.

Brewing tip: Use a warmed tea-pot and put 1 heaped teaspoon per person of organic Fairtrade Earl Grey tea leaves into the pot, add freshly boiled water and leave to infuse for 5 minutes. For more detail on brewing tea, please go toHow to Make Teas?

Ingredients: organic Fairtrade Ceylon orange pekoe tea, organic bergamot oil.

Part of the Steenbergs organic range of organic Fairtrade loose leaf black teas.
