"Earl Grey Flavoring"

by Feasle » Mar 27th, '11, 08:03

Is now listed as one of the ingredients in Earl Grey Bravo. Since I'm very sure that "Earl Grey flavoring" isn't a base ingredient, that it is made of other stuff, I'd very much like to know what it is made of. For the price I pay and my continued purchasing I feel like you owe me the respect of telling me exactly (yes... exactly) what is in the product you are selling me.

If you'd like you could also let me know why an exceptional Earl Grey tea would need "Earl Grey Flavoring"? Or have I not been buying exceptional tea?

First of all you need to know that Earl Grey is a flavored tea, and they all will contain Earl Grey Flavoring or Bergamot oil.

Totally legit question. They have issues with accurately explaining what is in a tea. Thankfully, they are pretty responsible with fixing the situation. And even though Bergamont is part of early grey, there may be other ingredients in the flavoring. I had a similar issue with ginger being in a tea, and it was not labeled as such. They resolved the issue, they really do care about the customers in that regard. You should email them though, this is not the best place to get attention from the company.
