Earl Grey tea is enjoyed the world over by real people who appreciate its depth of character, sweet citrus notes, and palate cleansing finish. The tea is however also enjoyed by people who are not real in any way, other than on the printed page or silver screen. Perhaps more than any other tea, Earl Grey appears to have been the beverage of choice for one fictitious character after the next. From James Bond to Star Trek’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard, to Sir Leigh Teabing of the DaVinci code, Earl Grey holds a special place in the world of storytelling. And why not? The tea itself has quite a story having apparently been given as a gift to a British diplomat by a Chinese Mandarin in thanks for saving his life.

Whether or not you believe that story, one fact that is definitely beyond reproach is that Earl Grey is a wonderful and soothing tea any time of the day. The organic variety we offer here is no exception. This tea is 100% natural, no chemicals or pesticides were used in its production - what you see, smell, and taste - is what you get. We’ve not been approached by any movie producers yet about sponsoring any upcoming 007 productions, but if Hollywood producers do come a-knocking, with their healthy Californian lifestyles, this is the tea we’re going to be serving!
