Brewing instructions
Description

Earl Grey and Jasmine Green Tea is the fusing of two Tea varieties to make something wholly unique. Adding bergamot oil, the ingredient that provides a citrusy kick, to leaves is most commonly associated with Black Tea.

However, this twist on a classic takes matters to the next level, not only in the way it uses Green Tea but also that it includes Jasmine. Expect grassy, fruity, floral notes with every sip.

Does Earl Grey and Jasmine Green Tea have Caffeine?

It’s worth noting, too, that Earl Grey and Jasmine Green Tea contains a modest amount of caffeine (approx.

30-mg per 8-oz cup). This stimulating chemical compound, as most will know already, provides a much-needed energy boost, thereby enabling you to start the day the right way. And if that wasn’t enough, it also comes with Green Tea benefits. What’s not to like?

About This Leaf Tea Blend

Of the two Tea types merged here, Jasmine Tea is arguably the oldest. The flowers themselves likely originate from Persia (modern-day Iran), eventually making it to China via trade routes during the South-Song Dynasty (1127-1279 CE).

Centuries later, during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), it was here that Loose Leaf Jasmine Tea became popular.

Earl Grey Tea, on the other hand, has somewhat more mysterious origins. How it took the name of a 19th Century Earl and British Prime Minister, no one knows outside of speculation.

One legend is that Lord Grey, during a trip to China, saved a boy from drowning in a river. The boy’s father, overcome with gratitude, gifted him with Tea leaves scented with bergamot oil - and named it in his honour.

However, records indicate that Earl Grey never stepped foot into China and so the tale remains unfounded. All we can be sure about is that, when combined with Jasmine Green Tea, it makes for a truly delightful blend.

Perhaps best of all, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company pack it fresh to order. In doing so, we can guarantee not only quality but also consistency with every cuppa brewed.

How to Brew Earl Grey and Jasmine Green Tea

1, Put Tea leaves into a Tea Infuser or Filter (both available here).

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a mug or cup.

3, Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 80 and 90°C.

4, Infuse for 1 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste.

How to Serve: Best served without additions. However, some like to have honey or lemon.

Earl Grey and Jasmine Green Tea Benefits

Our Earl Grey Green Loose Tea, like all types of Green Tea, contains an abundance of antioxidants. Among them is Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is arguably the most health-beneficial chemical compound of all.

Studies establish that it can combat free radicals in the body, the product of natural, though often harmful, human oxidation. In doing this, EGCG in this beverage can help in reducing the risk of developing several chronic conditions.
