Earl Green is our oolong version of the black tea classic Earl Grey. This original blend highlights the alluring lilac fragrance of Bao Zhong oolong tea, which harmonizes gorgeously with citrusy and floral essence of bergamot. Earl Green is an oolong tea for all seasons and makes a remarkably delicious and easy-drinking cold brewed tea.



Tasting Notes: Refreshing with the alluring aromas of bergamot oranges, citrus blossoms and lilacs

Ingredients: Oolong tea, essential bergamot oil.

Additional Info: Oolong tea artisans, like boutique winemakers, bring forth the appellation characters of their teas through traditional crafting techniques. Each oolong tea's distinctive style reflects its place of origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.

Rishi Tea Blend
Water Temperature: 185°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 3 minutes (1st infusion), 4 minutes (2nd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I'm glad Rishi offers those "teaser" mini sized packs, because I never would've bought a larger size of this before trying it, and I didn't expect to like ot the way I did. In the past, I've found orangey flavours really haven't gone well with green teas, so I was sceptical about bergamot with something greenish, but the novelty of it being a green oolog (which I typically find full of pleasant flavours) was intriguing. It was surprisingly really nice. The fresh, floral flavours of the oolong combined with the citrussy bergamot to create a nice orchard kind of fragrance and taste. I'd suggest at least giving the trial size a go. It may surprise you how well the flavours combine.

Having relocated from Milwaukee to California, this was one of those things that I missed time and time again. After a year, I finally was able to get a hold on some more, and instantly remembered why it was the only tea that I drank back home. Earl Green is subtle and relaxing. It is simultaneously wonderfully flavorful. There are no other teas like this.
