Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon. The combination of black teas from these cultivation areas – refined with a hint of bergamot oil – is one of the most popular: Earl Grey. The malty Assam and the fine Darjeeling. Both originate from India. But could not be more different. The first comes from large, fertile, humid-hot tea gardens near the river Brahmaputra. The second comes from the high elevated gardens on the southern slopes of the Himalayas. Mountainous, cool and foggy. The whole of India covers about 20 percent of world tea production. But: Even the Indians love their tea. They drink most of it themselves. Only about 20 percent is exported. They brought the British to the taste of tea in the 19th century. When they were setting up large tea plantations to become less dependent on China. Also the name of the tea blend stems from: a Brit. Charles Grey who was British Prime Minister from 1830 to 1834. And the British influence goes even further. Formerly, Sri Lanka stood as a small island nation under the British flag. As a colony – Ceylon. The tea still carries the name. However, on coffee, not on tea. This was the main focus in Sri Lanka until 1869. Then a fungal disease destroyed the plantations. From then on, tea was grown. The cultivation areas are mainly located in the central highlands. There you can find highgrown, mediumgrown, lowgrown tea. Depending on height. Another variable: the two monsoon periods. They have different effects on the cultivation areas. This results in many distinctive features of the different cultivation areas, just like in the case of good wine. However, the three teas included in our "Earl of Grey" blend also have something in common: all are traditionally hand-picked. And they match each other perfectly.
