We couldn't be more proud of our Organic Earl Grey, it really does stand out from the rest. This 'Earl of House Grey' consists of high quality Australian Certified Organic, full bodied, black tea leaves from the humid Brahmuputra river valley in India, an area of clay soil rich in the nutrients of the floodplain. To give it the legendary and iconic earl grey flavour, bergamot oil from the citrus fruit of Bergamo, Italy is added.
Although tied up in English folklore, earl grey tea was actually crafted by Chinese tea masters who blended black tea with bergamot. It was clear they created something special as sweet, floral and citrus flavours dance seamlessly with malty and full bodied black tea leaves. A global favourite for a reason, these flavours will stoke all your taste buds.
Interestingly, differnt regions enjoy earl grey in different ways. In England, they favour it with a thin slice of lemon; In South Africans they are partial to a caffeine-free Rooibos blend, and Parisians prefer a sprig of lavender. TEAMATE's Earl Of House Grey is a blend custom fit for you to rule your day.
Earl Grey, along with any black TEA MATE tea, features a caffeine boost similar to coffee; without some of the jittery, anxious or in your head side effects.
Caffeine levels in tea are lower than coffee and its effects are tempered by L-theanine, an amino acid found only in tea. L-theanine has been found to provide a relaxing effect that counteracts the jitteriness of caffeine, without reducing the increase in alertness and focus.
Throw in the zesty benefits of bergamot root, which has become recognized as having many health benefits; this is a marriage of two houses built to rule the kingdoms.
Bergamot adds that delicious citrusy flavor to tea, whilst also delivering antibacterial properties that give your immune system a boost. It also has been shown to help with fevers, which makes bergamot an ideal cold remedy.
Beyond bergamot, Earl Grey tea is also rich in Vitamin C and zinc. This combination creates a perfectly balanced concoction that works to give your body the ultimate boost.
Since Earl Grey tea is often enjoyed without adding milk and sugar; this is a great weight loss drink choice. Furthermore, bergamot, a citrus plant, has long been believed to encourage weight loss and metabolism control. Whilst bergamot is doing it's thing, black tea is a strong source of polyphenols. Black tea will increase your metabolism to quicken the weight-loss process.
Next time you drink your Organic Earl Of House Grey, try adding a lemon or lime for a great taste and benefit to your body!
Research has shown that Earl Grey Tea works to improve cholesterol and blood pressure. A study in Preventative Medicine showed that enjoying three cups of Earl Grey a day encourages the production of triglycerides & HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol)in your body. Also, the flavanones in bergamot oil contain enzymes that inhibit the production of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). In summary, Earl Grey tea may help prevent cardiovascular diseases!
Bergamot oil has natural aromatherapy qualities, which means having a cup of Earl Grey Tea a day can help to boost your mood and reduce that daily anxiety that is hanging around.
Smile. Earl Grey tea contains a powerful antioxidant called catechin, which helps protect you from oral infections and tooth decay. Interestingly, trace amounts of fluoride that works to strengthen the enamel on your teeth are found in a healthy cup of earl grey.
The ingredients in Earl Grey tea help protect your gut health and support the digestion process. The same ingredients of Black Tea and Bergamot have been used in ancient medacines for centruies, acting as natural anti-inflammatories that can help relieve constipation and acid reflux.
