Tazo Earl Grey Tea

Tazo Earl Grey Tea

If you make a pitstop at Starbucks on your way to whatever got you out of bed, you probably know about Tazo - the seriously playful company thats serious about their tea. Tazo (now officially owned by Starbucks) makes a great variety of teas, one of my favorites is their Earl Grey tea. For the unfamiliar, let me explain. Earl Grey is a name for black tea delicately scented / flavored with the delicious essence of Bergamot oil. Bergamot is a citrus, a bitter cousin of the sweet orange. Tazo gets their Bergamot from southern Italy. When you pull each tea sachet out of the bag, you will notice that the bag is a wonderful yellow-orange color. Tazo is the only tea I have seen this happen with. I dont know if the oil comes out of the tea tea or if the bag is intentionally dipped in oil. Either way, Tazo Earl Grey makes a sublime cup of tea.
