      Thanks Lynda! Took years to get the flavour profile right for this one. Ecstatic that you like it!
      Keep sipping

    Absolutely love the earl grey! I drink it every morning and can get two brews out of one teabag. I love that it’s strong enough to give a tea drinker a morning caffeine boost but it’s still light and refreshing. So easy to drink!

    This tea is really the best blend/taste of Bergamot tea I ever tried during last 25 years at least and the name Empress is perfectly correlated with the provided grade of the drink. Have discovered this tea around four years ago and now have my tea taste spoiled- unable to compromise to any other Bergamot variations ever since. My son with his girlfriend have now joined the cohort of the admirers of this beauty as well.

    I really do enjoy this earl grey. I tend to drink it most afternoons, its lovely and gives me a nice warm feeling. I would strongly recommend this.

    I’ve been buying XO Teas since the beginning and I was lucky enough to meet Arjun in my local IGA recently when I was replenishing my stocks of XO tea. I love their teas especially the Empress. Deliciously flavoursome. I also particularly like that it’s organic.

    This is Earl Grey in another league! Taste this and it’ll be a bench mark that others will never reach. Full flavour with less leaves. One pot is never enough. 😉
    Olga I agree with your review.

    This is without a doubt the best tea I have ever had. It literally makes me happy when I drink it because it’s so delicious. As an added bonus the delivery was lightning fast. I ordered the tea online in the evening and it was delivered by lunchtime the next day. Thank you!
