Quick Overview

Earl Grey is a blend of Black Tea that is infused with the natural essential oil of Bergamot Orange, resulting in a mildly tart and refreshing taste unique to this variety. After brewing to a rich red colour, you will find a pleasing citrus perfume and fruity flavour at the back of your tongue. Enjoying a few sips of this tea will allow you to appreciate its smoky undertone. This is a medium body tea with low tannins that should be enjoyed black or with a very slight amount of sugar and milk.

Earl Grey Tea was named after Earl Charles Grey the Second of Britain who was the British Prime Minister in the 1830's. Legend has it that he was given a diplomatic gift of tea infused with Bergamont citrus oil. When that tea was introduced in the British House of Commons, it became so popular that he asked British tea merchants to recreate it.

The Black Tea used to create this flavour sensation is made from tea leaves more heavily oxidized and roasted than other tea varieties such as White, Green or Oolong. In the East, Black tea is known as red tea, which refers more accurately to the colour of the brewed leaves. It also preserves its flavour longer, making it a favourite article of trade. Compressed bricks of Black Tea even served as a form of currency in Mongolia, Tibet and Siberia into the 19th century.
