This classic black tea is the namesake of Charles Grey, Britain's Prime Minister during the 1830's. After saving the life of a Chinese nobleman, the Earl Grey received a gift of citrus blossom-scented tea traditionally known as Tai Tai Cha. Tea salons throughout Europe replicated this blend by "perfuming" black teas with the aromatic oil of Italian bergamot oranges. Thus, a timeless tea was born.
Ingredients: Organic black tea, essential bergamot oil.
Rishi tea bags are made from a plant-based material called polylactic acid (or PLA for short). PLA is an inert, DNA-free material that is produced by breaking down starches found in plant sources. Through this process, no plant DNA is left behind, making these hypoallergenic and allergen-free. PLA is NOT derived from petroleum and will not leak harmful plasticizers into your brew.
