Tea Information: Leaf Type: Oolong Where to Buy: Verdant Tea Tea Description: Traditional Earl Grey is a classic, great for every season. With the Earl of Anxi, we start not with a black tea, but with our Master Zhang’s Hand-Picked Tieguanyin to give the bergamot a sweet, bright base and reinforce the floral citrus notes.

The black tea is the strongest flavor, but notes of berry and pomegranate weave their way through every part of the sip – right through to the aftertaste. The black tea is a brisk tea, but I wouldn’t call it an aggressive one. Read More
