We decided to do the impossible and try and make an Earl Grey that would make even the pickiest Brit proud. Why is it impossible? Because Earl Grey drinkers tend to be a bit crazy about who makes the best version of this beloved tea. So, we decided to go back to the motherland and see how the best Earl Grey is made in London. 33 tea establishments later and we feel we have finally found a true Earl Grey. Our Tippy Earl Grey has a fresh bergamot flavor (because we use 100% bergamot extract) and a rich tea base made up of three distinct teas from across the world. We’re confident that once you have the real stuff it will be hard to go back.
Organic Black Tea, Organic Bergamot Peel, Organic Bergamot Oil
The first thing that sets our Earl Grey apart is the fact that we use 100% bergamot oil that is only found in Southern Italy. Most use a weird flavoring that can’t compare to the real thing. Next, we actually use the peel of the bergamot fruit (which is like a tiny grapefruit) to add an extra layer of bergamotty goodness. Lastly, we mix and age them for 30 days with three estate tea gardens (Keemun, Yunnan, and Assam). By using only real ingredients in our Tippy Earl Grey, it gives us a tea that will make the most discerning fan proud.

This blend starts with three distinct Indian teas. First, we chose an Assam tea that borders the Brahmaputra River.
