There are nearly as many legends surrounding Earl Grey as there are varieties. The one we love is that the Earl Grey recipe was given to the Second Earl of Grey in the 1830's by a Chinese mandarin whose life had been saved by a British Diplomat. But don't hold us to this!
Earl Grey today is one of the most popular blends in the world. The unmistakable aromatic fragrance of bergamot makes it an Earl Grey. We have several varieties online - classic black with bergamot, some with vanilla, some with a mild citrus note, even one with lavender. The base teas range from mild to robust to please all tastes.
