In 1830 British Prime Minister Earl Grey received a diplomatic gift from China: a chest full of deliciously fragrant exotic tea. Enchanted, he immediately asked his tea-makers to recreate the distinctive taste he had come to love. Their version of the blend became known as Earl Grey tea.
The bergamot plant grows all over the Mediterranean — the peel is cold pressed to extract the aromatic essential oil which defines the Earl Grey fragrance and taste.
Delicious with: Earl Grey is the ideal accompaniment to a traditional afternoon tea of sandwiches, cakes and pastries.
