"EARL OF GRAY": THE BEST FROM INDIA AND SRI LANKA
Assam, Darjeeling, and Ceylon. The combination of black teas from these growing areas - refined with a touch of bergamot oil - is one of the most popular: Earl Gray. Malty Assam and noble Darjeeling. Both are from India. But couldn't be more different. The one from large, fertile, hot, and humid tea gardens by the Brahmaputra river. The second is from higher gardens on the southern slopes of the Himalayas. Mountainous, cool and foggy. The whole of India covers around 20 percent of world tea production. But: Indians also love their tea. You drink most of it yourself. Only around 20 percent is exported. The British gave them a taste in the 19th century. When they built large tea plantations so as not to be so dependent on China. Also the namesake of the tea blend: a Brit. Charles Gray was British Prime Minister from 1830 to 1834. British influence goes even further. As a small island nation, Sri Lanka was also formerly under the British flag. As a colony of Ceylon. The tea is still called that. But for coffee, not for tea. In Sri Lanka, they continued to do so until 1869. Then a fungal disease destroyed the plantations. From then on, tea was grown. The cultivation regions are mainly located in the central highlands. There are high-grown, medium-grown, and low-grown teas. Depending on the height. Another variable: the two monsoon seasons. They have different effects on the growing areas. The result is a lot of unique character traits of the different growing areas, as with good wine. But the three teams in our "Earl of Gray" blend also have something in common: All are traditionally hand-picked.
