The Metropolitan Tea Company Ltd. - Earl Grey

Date Rated: March 2005

Ingredients: Premium Ceylon tea and natural flavours.

Tea format: Bags with strings, packaged in a small wooden box. Also loose tea. Also tea bags in various other containers.

Where to get it: I found this tea in the Quechee Village Gorge gift shop in Quechee, VT. The Metropolitan Tea Company was kind enough to send me the looseleaf version. Since they are a wholesale tea supplier, you can learn about them at their web site, but you'll have to order at Victoria Gallery and Teas.

Recommended Preparation: Steep 2 (not rounded) teaspoons of loose tea for 5 minutes. Or steep bag for 5 minutes. (10 oz. cup.)

Comments: A medium-bodied Earl Grey with a medium amount of bergamot.
