Love Earl Greys? Maybe you drink it everywhere, at home, at work, or with friends. No matter, Earl Grey is a staple for many, and Dammann Frères is sure to please! Depending on the length of your steep, the bergamot essential oil (extracted from the Bergamot orange) that permeates the tea leaves can give you a subtle or biting taste, whichever you prefer. A bit of history, shall we? There are far too many tales concerning the origins of Earl Grey, however it is most likely crafted by a Mandarin tea seller at the request of Charles Grey to mask the taste of the local water!
