Product Code: 000662
  • £6.25
A superior loose leaf Earl Grey blend of particular distinction.

A superior blend of elegant Yunnan and spicy Ceylon with natural French Bergamot. An Earl Grey of particular distinction.

One of our best selling Earl Grey teas and rightly so. Every Earl Grey enthusiast should indulge in this version. It is full of good taste in every sense.

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.
