Yes it is a Green Earl Grey! Not all Earl Grey’s are blended with Black Tea. The Bergamot essential oil can be blended with various types of tea. Our Green Earl Grey is blended with a gunpowder green. Green gunpowder tea is rolled into a tight little ball, sometimes so tight it resembles gun shot pellets. Gunpowder green tea is on the stronger spectrum of green teas, so it blends nicely with the strong floral citrus flavor from the bergamot.
