From Nourish Tea

nourishtea earl grey comes exclusively from Sri Lanka (of course). The leaves are grown on steep terrain and unusually high altitudes. The processing of red teas requires full oxidation, and the specific Italian bergamot oil used on our tea leaves creates an incredible citrus aroma, with no bitter after taste at all. From the moment you crack open the tin, the aroma of our earl grey over powers you… its an amazing product and an obvious staple for the kitchen.

This is a solid black tea. The leaves have a rich aroma which I love. Be careful not to add too many leaves though, the tea can get bitter very quickly so the amount of tea leaves you add is crucial! I like drinking it black and straight up so maybe adding milk would make it less bitter.

Recently I made Earl Grey Gin! It was amazing. I left the tea leaves in the Gin for over 24 hours so it did end up bitter. I’m going to try it again and steep it for a few hours instead of overnight next time but still a great overall flavor! It tasted like unsweetened iced tea. I’m excited to continue perfecting a recipe over the summer!!

Definitely try it for a few hours! I did the same with a raspberry honey black tea – try tasting as you go, I found even after a few hours it got too bitter. Good luck! Drunk on tea :D


thanks for the tips!! I’m excited to try all different kinds of alcohol + tea combinations :)

Rounding out my Earl Grey Fest this afternoon, I thought I’d brew this one to compare with the cream earl greys. There’s definitely a difference – the bergamot flavour is quite strong and citrusy without anything else to balance it out. Like the others, I like this one a bit better with milk added. It’s pretty much just an uncomplicated middle-of-the-road earl grey, though I have to say that when comparing with the other two (before the milk), the base tea in this just tasted a little… flat. It’s possible it’s actually a bit stale, because this tea has definitely been in my cupboard for a while.

Nourishtea The Duke of Earl was naturally irresistible at a measly $6 for a big fat can (110 grams) of single-origin, high-altitude Sri Lankan tea laced with organic bergamot oil! As advertised, the infused tea leaves really are red, and appear to be torn into similar medium-sized pieces.

The liquor is dark amber and the flavor is good. Maybe not my favorite Earl Grey, but a fantastic value for an organic and fair trade single-origin blend with a high-quality black tea base. The dried leaves are very richly scented, but the bergamot does not overwhelm in the brewed tea. I do not have the sense that anything is being covered up or hidden here (as is often the case with mediocre Earl Greys). No scratchiness or rough edges, happily.

Le Duc is a solid Ceylon Earl Grey offering—in addition to being all-natural, organic, and fair trade.

Pleasant, light on bergamot. I find it tastes better with a cooler and somewhat longer steep.
