Our take on the quintessential British blend of fine Chinese and Ceylon black tea is perfectly balanced with flavours of citrusy bergamot – we've even added a scattering of blue cornflower petals for an elegant final flourish. Renowned for its wonderful bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic.

The story goes that the iconic blend was specially created for Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, in reward for saving the son of a Chinese mandarin from drowning. When his supplies of the tea had run out, the earl commissioned British tea blenders to recreate the taste. A few decades later, Walter Whittard devised his own signature version which took the tea auctions by storm. Have a taste, and find out what all the fuss was about.

  • EARL GREY BLACK TEA - Renowned for its wonderful bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic. Our take on the British blend of fine Chinese and Ceylon loose leaf black teas is perfectly balanced with flavors of citrusy bergamot – we've even added a scattering of blue cornflower petals for an elegant final flourish.
  • LOOSE LEAF TEA - Our Earl Grey tea contains Black Tea, Orange Peel, Bergamot Flavoring, 1% Cornflower Petals. Suitable for vegetarians and is vegan friendly. Best if stored in a cool dry, place away from strong lights and odors.
  • HOW TO BREW - Black tea is more robust than other tea types, so don't hold back. Add two teaspoons (around 4g) of loose loose-leaf per cup and use water off the boil (around 176°F). leave the kettle after boiling for five minutes. We recommend brewing in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes. Best enjoyed hot!
  • RESEALABLE & STACKABLE TIN - Our caddy brews approximately 50 cups of tea (using 2 tsp/a cup). This Earl Grey tea is presented in a charming Tea Discoveries caddy inspired by the beautiful blue cornflowers in the blend, the quintessential British loose leaf black tea with flavors of bergamot.
