About This Tea: A delicious earl grey black tea blend with an underlying hint of vanilla! Wake up to this smooth and aromatic blend on a brisk winter morning or afternoon. If you love earl grey, drink this any time of year! Upon unsealing the pouch you will smell the traditional earl grey scent of bergamot. The vanilla flavor is very slight. The cornflowers add a very small bit of floral element. This full-leaf black tea can be steeped with any regular steeping device. Once steeped, the tea has the traditional earl grey flavor that combines well with the vanilla undertone. As a black tea it is caffeinated and will keep you alert. It is best drunk during the day and not at night. You might consider adding vegan or non-vegan milks if you like a milky earl grey blend. Consider adding sugar for sweetness, but it is not at all necessary because the earl grey stands strong by itself. This tea, as sold, is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. If you like a smooth tasting earl grey, not too strong, this tea is just for you!
