What are the benefits of Earl Grey Gourmand tea?

 

Our Earl Grey Gourmand is a black tea from China, flavoured with bergamot and enhanced with a sweet note of crème brûlée and caramel. 

Let's first have a look at the bergamot... 

Bergamot is a citrus fruit native to Italy that looks like a slightly dented lime. It comes from the bergamot tree, a plant that grows mainly in Calabria (Italy). The flesh of the bergamot is slightly acid and bitter. The peel diffuses a very powerful perfume it is what differentiates it from other citrus fruits. 

This particular smell is due to the richness in essential oil of the bergamot peel. This essential oil loaded with flavor so characteristic is also what is most sought after in this fruit. 

For tea, bergamot is indissociable from EARL GREY. An Earl Grey tea is always flavoured with bergamot. 

In addition to its particular flavour, bergamot is full of benefits.... We explain! 

Like most citrus fruits, bergamot is very rich in vitamin C, which is a very good antioxidant that slows down cellular aging. It is ideal to boost the immune system and bring a wave of energy. 

Bergamot essential oil also has calming properties that regulate stress and help you sleep. 

To the bergamot, we have chosen to add a sweet note of crème brûlée and caramel

This addition brings a creamy and vanilla note like the Catalan crème brûlée.

If you are a fan of crème brûlée, our Earl Grey Gourmand tea is sure to delight you.

Where does Earl Grey Gourmand tea come from? 

Earl Grey tea is a classic and has a true, funny story. 

The origins of Earl Grey tea are Chinese and closely linked to Earl Charles Grey, Also at the beginning of the 19th century, while holding the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs, Earl Grey would have gone to China for a diplomatic trip. 

During his stay, he would have saved a young Chinese from drowning and the father of the latter would have decided to offer a gift to the English nobleman: the recipe of a bergamot tea. 

Back in England, Charles Grey would have tested the tea recipe that had been given to him and he and his wife would have loved what they tasted. They gave this delicious blend to their friends and family who appreciated it as much as they did. 

They gave the recipe to several British tea companies and asked them to reproduce it. It was a great success and Earl Grey is nowadays a tea appreciated all over the world

At Compagnie & Co, we have decided to combine it with flavours of crème brûlée and caramel to bring it sweetness and deliciousness

You will be charmed by the richness of vanilla associated with the acidity of bergamot citrus.
