House Earl Grey - Bergamot Black
Earl Grey is a British tea classic and the most popular tea of the Western World. This citrus-scented tea blend dates back to the 19th Century Sino-British trade of opium, tea, silk and porcelain. Our bestselling House Earl Grey blends bold-flavored Yunnan Dian Hong harvested from antique tea trees with natural bergamot citrus from Southern Italy. It is the perfect organic blend of America’s most popular tea and is frequently complimented as the best Earl Grey ever.

We are a small independent operation, and as such we operate inside of our retail space, the Phoenix Pearl Tea Tavern in Red Lodge, MT. We bag teas for orders while also serving in-store customers, including making cups of tea, making food, and selling bulk and retail purchases. Our employees work as quickly as they can, but we don't have a warehouse to operate out of with dedicated employees. As such, orders may take anywhere from 1-5 business days to ship. Thank you for understanding.
I was expecting Phoenix Pearl to be noticeably better than Bigelow, Stash and other supermarket box brands. So far, I’d say it’s on par. Certainly drinkable. Don’t let it steep too long - I’ve found that makes mine tend toward the bitter.
What a refreshing take on the classic Earl grey. Not your average mix, this one delights from the first pour to the last sip.
