Who is Earl Grey, or Who was Earl Grey? Here is a blog post about the man himself.
We offer this as one of the teas featured on the Tea Menu in the Selby House Cafe at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. A SOILON tea sachet is an option for this tea. Made from corn starch, SOILON is biodegradable. However, home-composters should note that high heat is required to break down SOILON tea sachets completely.
20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea.
Steep this tea multiple times. Loose-leaf teas have far more flavor than traditional tea bags due to the superior quality and freshness. Tea strength is a personal decision. Please experiment to determine your preferences.
Use boiling water and allow your tea to steep as little as 3 minutes or as much as 6 minutes. For each of the following steeps, use boiling water and double the steep time.
Organic Earl Grey can be steeped at least 2 times and, depending on the steep times, as many as 4 times. Consider blending the first steep with the following steeps to balance the tea. If you do not want to drink all the tea, store it in the fridge for wonderful iced tea.
Store in a dry place.
