ORGANIC EARL GREY NAMED “BEST EARL GREY” BY EVERY DAY WITH RACHAEL RAY.
February 2011 Every Day with Rachael Ray cover
Earl Grey (black tea flavored with bergamot citrus fruit oil) can sometimes taste bitter or astringent, but this brew is perfectly balanced. “It has a smoky orange flavor—mmm,” one panelist cooed as she savored the complex, earthy blend. After taking a sip, another enthusiastic taster deemed it "pure perfection."

ORGANIC ENGLISH BREAKFAST NAMED BEST PLAIN TEA IN PREMIUM TEAS
July/August 2007 Cooke's Illustrated Magazine Cover
Premium teas are almost always picked by hand, sold loose, and mail-ordered. We chose English breakfast blends from five high-end tea companies—Harney & Sons, Upton Tea Imports, Mariage Frères, Mighty Leaf, and Adagio—and tasted them plain against our winning supermarket tea, Twinings English Breakfast, and again with milk against Tazo Awake, our favorite supermarket tea when milk is added. In the plain tasting, Mighty Leaf Organic English Breakfast ($7.95 for 4 ounces, or $1.99 per ounce) won by a landslide.
