What is dead may never die...
Designed for those whose lives belong to the open sea, this earl grey redefines what an earl grey stands for. A rich, intensely citric bergamot wraps around a powerful shu pu-erh to add the earthy bite a sailor needs. Then, we add lemon and lime to compliment the citric bergamot (plus, you need to keep that scurvy away, right?). This delightfully fruity earl grey is fantastic hot and needs no milk, though some sugar wouldn't hurt. In fact, this one makes a great latte or London Fog (Pyke Fog?), and even comes out marvelous iced!
