The recipe for this delightful blend was presented to the second Earl Grey in the 1880s and has become one of the world’s classic teas.
The most famous flavored tea, Earl Grey is a blend of fine black China teas and the natural oil of bergamot, a pear-shaped citrus fruit grown in Italy and Sicily. A delicious, very aromatic tea, it is best served black or with a slice of lemon at any time of the day. It is said that a Chinese Mandarin gave the secret recipe to one of Earl Grey's diplomats in 1830 as a reward for saving his life.
