Second cousin to the Earl Grey (but not second fiddle). Organic white tea buds scented with the natural essence of Sicilian bergamot. The difference between natural bergamot and it's synthetic counterpart is astounding. While the synthetic version resonates a single note of 'bergamot', the natural essence is a complex and voluptuous character remaining true to it's citrus nature. In a word, gorgeous. Lighter than a traditional Earl Grey, The White Duke is delicate, yet lively, with a clarity that makes this a truly elegant and masterful tea.
Organic Chinese white tea buds, organic bergamot essence, organic blue cornflowers.
