Extra Bergamot English Earl Grey

Holy Bergamot!  Drink this treasure iced with sugar to keep the mosquitoes away during the summer months.  Add a bit of lemon to the iced mixture to really bring out the citrus-like nature of the bergamot oils.  Much more powerful than traditional Earl Grey teas sold at your typical supermarket.  Upton claims the tea is, “Specially blended for those who prefer a richly scented Earl Grey.  Our most popular Earl Grey. Rated ‘best overall’ by the Wall Street Journal's Catalog Critic.”
