Over 100 years ago, tea planters brought their finest ancestral tea bushes from China and India to Wadmalaw Island near the historic old city of Charleston, South Carolina. Now the direct descendants of these very plants have been lovingly restored to their former grandeur at the Charleston Tea Garden, a lush subtropical tea farm.


Earl Grey Tea at it's best!! The Charleston Earl Grey Tea is delicately scented with the essence of bergamot for a one-of-a-kind-flavor.


Earl Grey tea is used as a flavouring for many types of cakes and confectionery, such as chocolates, as well as savoury sauces. To create a sauce,  the flavour is normally created by adding tea bags to the basic stock, boiling for a few minutes and then discarding the bags.


To create sweets, loose tea is often added to melted butter or hot cream and strained after the flavour is infused. A London dry gin infused with Earl Grey tea is a fundamental ingredient for the Earl Grey TEAni cocktail (a variation on a classic gin sour) created by Audrey Saunders in the early 2000's.


Use in Moderation: Like other black teas, the polyphenols and caffeine in Earl Grey tea are reputed to have cardiovascular, digestive, and cancer-preventitive benefits, but research in these areas remains inconclusive.


The bergamot oil used to flavour Earl Grey tea may provide health benefits as well as risks to its consumers. Some studies have suggested that the oil may be able to lower cholesterol and have some analgesic properties.


On the other hand, bergamot has a few health risks. These risks can include an array of skin issues. Consuming too much of bergamot teas can lead to issues with potassium intake. Lowered potassium in the body can lead to experiencing cramping and muscle twitching.
