LET’S TALK TASTE
The Italian neighborhoods of Brooklyn have lots of flavor, so as a nod to our neighbors we blend the oils of Bergamot oranges which originally come from southern Italy, with smooth black tea from India, for a distinctly deep, yet mellow citrus character.
WHAT'S REALLY BEHIND THE NAME
Earl grey sounds boring. Brooklyn is in KING county and our home-base. Genius!
Dark burgundy, Mellow citrus, Full body
Use spring or filtered water for best results. Allow boiled water to stand for a minute then steep for 3-4 minutes or to taste. Remove sachet.

WHAT ARE THE SACHETS AND PACKAGING MADE OF ?
Great question. Our sachets are plant-based. We only use a NON-GMO sugarcane based compostable bag that is sealed ultrasonically [without glue] attached to a string and paper. This tea bag can be commercially composted. If you purchase the sachets in the individually wrapped format that are recyclable they come with a foil barrier to preserve freshness.
The tin can is sold empty as storage. This is an ideal option should you wish to purchase either format. You can fit anywhere from 12-15 sachets in the 8 oz empty tin can on offer, in each flavor. This helps keeps your pantry organized.
