More About Earl Grey
Citrusy and with a hint of sweetness and spice, Earl Grey is a tea flavored with bergamot essential oil. While the history of Earl Grey tea is unclear, it most likely acquired its name from Earl Charles Grey, a 19th-century British Prime Minister who helped to popularize the tea. Today, Earl Grey is a well-loved classic.
Bergamot is a small, pear-shaped citrus fruit cultivated primarily in the Mediterranean. The aromatic essential oil pressed from the rind of bergamot has a slightly spicy, citrusy taste that, when added to tea, lends Earl Grey its distinctive flavor. While bergamot is typically added to black tea to make a classic Earl Grey, the essential oil can be added to any type of tea to create a similar flavor.
Our organic Earl Grey is a true classic, blending Yunnan black tea with bergamot essential oil from Italy to create a rich tea with a smooth, citrusy flavor. In addition to our classic organic Earl Grey, we also carry Earl Grey Français, made with bergamot from France for a stronger, spicier cup. Earl Grey Lavender blends Earl Grey tea with lavender blossoms from Provence to create a wonderfully relaxing tea with a soothing floral note.
Finally, Earl Grey Rooibos is a wonderful option for those looking to cut down on caffeine or for a soothing bedtime cup. Rooibos, a naturally caffeine-free herbal tea, is blended with bergamot to create a flavorful and aromatic cup that warms and soothes.
