A classic, well-loved tea that needs little introduction, our Earl Grey blend is delicately scented with Italian bergamot oil.
A traditional black tea flavoured with oil of bergamot. This light tea has a delicate citrus aroma and a strong, fragrant taste.
Black tea contains polyphenols, a type of antioxidant. Caffeine and an amino acid called L-theanine are also found in black tea, which is said can improve alertness and focus – even more than coffee!
Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? This could be the tea blend for you. The oil of bergamot in this blend is said to calm the mind and improve mood, so this is a delightful tea to relax with after a long day at work.
Using traditional methods of blending and tasting, this tea has been carefully crafted by the Miles team, using Miles experTeas!

Black tea delicatley flavoured with oil of bergamot.
Black tea is best made with water brought to a full boil and used immediately for the tea to release its full flavour (if you're using a teapot remember to warm the pot first). Use one teabag per person or one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea per person.
Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes. If you like your tea strong add more tea, don't steep for longer as this will turn the flavours bitter.
Drink with lemon, with milk or on its own.
Perfect to enjoy by itself, but even better with a slice of lemon drizzle cake or a lemon shortbread thin for an extra special treat!
Make sure you store your tea in an airtight container – a tin is better than plastic, or seal up the packaging it arrives in. Although tea feels dry, it contains 3 % moisture and oils that are essential to its flavour. If not properly stored these can evaporate. Keep your tea in a fairly cool, dry place, which is out of sunlight and try to keep away from any spices that could taint the flavour.
