Blend No. 55. Ceylon & Assam Black Teas & Natural Essence of Bergamot A flavor somewhat superior to traditional Earl Grey. Fragrant Ceylon Dimbulla and Uva are artfully combined with select teas from India s Assam valley, then scented with the essence of bergamot form the realm of Reggio Calabria, Italy. This small batch of tea was personally crafted for you by Steven Smith, teamaker. To fashion a true Lord Bergamot, one begins with a higher class of Ceylons and Assams than used in traditional Earl Grey formulas. To these we add the perfume of oils squeezed from thick-skinned bergamot, a citrus fruit grown on small family plots in southern Italy. It s a process similar to pressing olives. We know the Earl would be envious.
