No. 09, The White Duke

Second cousin to the Earl Grey (but not second fiddle). Organic Silver Needles white tea scented with the natural essence of Sicilian bergamot. The difference between natural bergamot and the synthetic version is astounding. While the artificial version resonates a single note of ‘bergamot’ flavor, the natural essence is a complex and voluptuous character remaining true to it’s citrus nature. Lighter than a traditional Earl Grey, The White Duke is delicate, lively and masterful.
