The Earl Grey tradition is culturally British, with sources dating back to the early 1800s documenting flavoring black teas with bergamot oranges. Whether you’re a seasoned tea drinker or new convert, this smoky-sweet blend is easy to love. The flavorful base of Ceylon invites the addition of cream or mylk of your choice to create a ‘London Fog’ tea latte.
The question remains — do you add cream to your tea or tea to your cream?

Quality water is just as important as quality tea when it comes to your brew. Here's what we recommend:
- Filtered Water - standard home filtration systems, Brita, Hydros, you name it. Filter that isht!
- Spring Water - have access to bottled spring water, or have an actual clear spring by where you live? Try brewing with spring water and unlock unique sweetness in your cup!
- Reverse Osmosis - RO filtration systems are standard for tea and coffee shops, and provide the most consistently great water for brewing any of your favorite drinks. For your home, counter-top as well as below-the-counter systems are great to help step up your water game!
