Earl Grey Tea
A precious black tea blended with the citrus aroma of fresh bergamot, strong and intense.
Earl Grey is one of the most recognized flavored teas in the world. This quintessentially British tea is typically a black tea base flavored with oil from the rind of bergamot orange, a citrus fruit with the appearance and flavor somewhere between an orange and a lemon with a little grapefruit and lime thrown in.

Benefits of Earl Grey Tea
I discovered Earl Grey doesnt just have a unique and tasty flavor, it also has a wide range of benefits.
1. Good for Your Teeth
Tea contains very high levels of catechin, an antioxidant that fights oral infections. Fluoride is also a natural component of Earl Grey tea, and its also found in tap water. Fluoride is good for your teeth because it protects them from cavities, as well as fighting decay. So if youre not a fan of city water, Earl Grey can be another natural way to get your daily dose of fluoride.
Earl Grey tea has been known to improve digestion. It aids in the digestive process and helps relieve painful indigestion, colic and nausea. It is also used to treat intestinal problems such as worms. Because it helps the digestive process, it can also help to keep you regular.
3. Fights Anxiety and Depression
The bergamot in Earl Grey tea has been known to have a calming effect on people, as well as to boost a persons mood. This is due to bergamots natural aromatherapy qualities. In this way Earl Grey is a good natural solution for people suffering from depression, stress and anxiety.
It may not have as much as a kick as coffee, but it does contain enough caffeine to give you a nice little afternoon boost without keeping you up all night.
