Composition of the Earl Grey Supérieur
Our Earl Grey Supérieur is like all Earl Grey teas, a tea flavoured with bergamot.
If our Earl Grey Supérieur convinces everyone who discovers it, this is due to the quality of the ingredients that compose it, and to the method of flavouring that we use.
As for the ingredients of Earl Grey tea, our secret lies in the exceptional blend of quality ingredients prepared from Chinese black teas, a selection of bergamot essential oils and flower petals.
Moreover, at Compagnie Coloniale, when flavouring our teas, we always seek the perfect balance between taste and aroma. During the tasting, you will discover the richness of the aromas, but also the particular taste of our blend of black teas. So you know you are drinking a tea, not a hot drink with a bergamot taste.
What is bergamot?
Bergamot is the fruit of the bergamot tree, which grows mainly in Italy. Most of the fruit is used to extract its essential oil. This essential oil is mainly known for its characteristic taste but also for its calming and relaxing virtues, which makes it a perfect ally against stress.
The flower petals are added at the end of the flavouring process. They decorate the blend to give it a pleasant visual, but do not add taste to the tea.
Finally, our Earl Grey Supérieur is flavoured with our unique steam flavouring process. This allows the flavours to remain faithful to the palate.
Tips for preparation
How to prepare this black tea scented with bergamot so that it releases all the splendor of its aromas? It's very simple:
We advise you to let it infuse for 3 minutes in simmering water between 85° and 90°C.
But we can never repeat it enough: the secret of a good tea is to enjoy it first! You can shorten this time if you prefer a lighter taste, or lengthen it for a more intense result.
It is ideal to drink in the morning because it brings a real energy in the long run, perfect to start the day!
The Earl Grey Superieur tea is a must, with powerful and delicate aromas. Very rich in antioxidants, it would facilitate the elimination of toxins.
It is also and above all a gourmet tea, ideal for a moment of pleasure and sweetness. Its unique bergamot aroma inspires even the most gourmand to make delicious cakes infused with Earl Grey!
