This beautifully fragrant tea, a blend of Darjeeling and Black China leaf teas, flavoured with oil of bergamot, said to be originally named after the Earl who invented the tea. It is reported to be the favourite of HRH The Queen Mother.
Delicately scented, a pale, clear infusion of mild flavour. Packagers who use too much oil can give this otherwise demure drink a perfumed, soapy taste.
Best served with a slice of lemon, good with high tea. It complements fish dishes and goes well with sweets.
