Black tea, natural bergamot oil, Madagascar vanilla flavors, rose petals
The type of bergamot oil used in an Earl Grey blend makes an immense difference. Natural bergamot essential oil has a more subtle, but well-defined flavor, with zest and a genuine citrus intensity. Conversely, synthetic bergamot is more one-dimensional, having a tendency to taste timid in the cup. The former is what we have always chosen to use at TEALEAVES. Vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron, as there is extensive labor required to grow the seed pods. Despite this setback (or perhaps because of it), it is highly valued for its flavor, and is widely used in both the commercial and domestic spheres in baking, perfumeries, and aromatherapy. In our Vanilla Earl Grey loose leaf tea, vanilla adds roundness and rich character to the citrus appeal from the oil of bergamot present in our Earl Grey blends.

I love everything about the TeaLeaves tea's I purchased. Vanilla Earl Grey is high-quality, so I only need to use a teaspoon of the loose leaf (unlike other brands) and the flavour is classic, with a slight creaminess. The perfect afternoon treat. The tin is beautiful and I have them on display in my office.
This is our morning tea and it has an incredible smell, and the tea itself is wonderful. Everyone loves it in my household.
This tea is amazing in a latte or on its own! My sister said it's her favourite earl grey!
