INFORMATION:
Earl Grey is world renowned as a classic English tea - probably as famous as the Tower Bridge or Big Ben. If you are fan of Earl Grey and haven't tried Cream Earl Grey yet, you're in for a treat. Cream Earl Grey has a taste that's smooth with vanilla overtones that stand out above the premium bergamot flavor - the signature taste of Earl Grey. This is a tea that would complement a royal meal or any another aristocratic occasion for that matter! One has to assume that Charles Grey himself (1764-1845) would have strongly approved of this delicacy.

Well, at some point along the line, a Canadian tea blender decided to memorialize the Earl one step further by creating a variant of traditional Earl Grey tea. He began with a green gunpowder to symbolize the grass football is played on, and the thunder and vigor with which it is played. He then added the signature bergamot and topped it off with the essence of fresh cream, known to be the 4th Earl's preferred tea additive. The resulting cup was found to be quite delicious and invigorating indeed. We at Metropolitan Tea are exceedingly pleased to have secured a steady and lasting supply of this wonderful blend. We encourage you to raise a toast while enjoying it. To the 4th Earl Grey of the Football! Hip hip Hoorah!
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
