A refined Earl Grey enhanced by royal blue mallow flowers resulting in an exceptional tea

A classic British tea infused with natural Bergamot to give its world-renowned flavour.

This is a very refined Earl Grey enhanced with royal blue mallow flowers resulting an exceptional tea.

Fragrant and light the underlying blend is made up of teas from Ceylon and China. Enjoyed with or without milk, or with lemon.

There are many claims to the origin of the name of this famous tea. Our favourite is that it is eponymously named after Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s who, it is claimed, received a gift of tea flavoured with bergamot oil from a grateful Chinese mandarin. The fact that bergamot was unknown in China at the time is overlooked.

In time, Earl Grey's blend became popular with all sections of British society and is famous worldwide as one of Britain's most popular blends.

Enjoy with or without milk, to your taste.
