Ingredients: Ceylon black tea
This tea is made with Ceylon black tea as the base, infused with bergamot orange fragrance, resulting in a rich and aromatic taste. Carefully crafted by a master blender, it presents the pure essence of Earl Grey flavor with the scent of bergamot, intense, long-lasting, and highly exotic, suitable for enjoying as a hot tea or in iced beverages. Its taste becomes even more unique when made into milk tea, offering a different sensation compared to drinking it directly. It has several beneficial effects, including refreshing and relieving fatigue, quenching thirst, promoting beauty, relaxing the mind, aiding digestion, stimulating the appetite, diuretic properties, and reducing swelling. The tea has a bright orange-red color, a stimulating flavor, a full-bodied taste, and although slightly bitter and astringent, it leaves a sweet aftertaste.
