The Second Earl Grey was the British Prime Minister in the 1830s. During this term, the act was passed to abolish slavery across the British Empire. It was a truly historical accomplishment, yet many will only know him for his wonderful tea instead! He reputedly received a diplomatic gift of tea flavoured with bergamot oil, and Earl Grey tea has since then gained popularity.
Our Earl Grey is a select blend of our finest teas, lightly scented with the elegant flavour of bergamot. This gives it the aromatic, refreshing character that balances the invigorating briskness of the tea with a bright fresh citrus taste. Enjoy one of our most popular afternoon teas with a slice of lemon to capture the top notes or indulge with delicious creamy desserts or lemon cakes and tartlets. Best served without milk. A cup of our Earl Grey can also be enjoyed in the evening with our Decaffeinated Earl Grey
