How much acid is in Earl Grey tea?
Earl Grey tea has a level of acidity similar to other black teas. Earl Grey uses a standard black tea, often a Ceylon black tea, as the base. The flavoring, bergamot oil, adds aroma but does not hugely effect the acidity. Also, acidity is a function of concentration, so it is hard to give an exact estimate of acidity...because tea contains mildly acidic substances, the stronger the tea is, the more acidic it will be. As a general rule, tea, including Earl Grey tea, is slightly more acidic than water, but significantly less acidic than coffee.
