The grand old Earl himself. Large leaf Ceylon tea is infused with bergamot to produce a vibrant citrus flavour which has delighted royals for generations.
From the master:If someone likes plain earl grey you should suggest “French Earl Grey”. It will get them out of their ‘tea bubble’. Earl Grey is a classic flavour which we have many varieties of so there are heaps of options for earl grey lovers. The tea was originally made for Earl Grey (in the 1830s) when returning from Canton he discovered he thoroughly enjoyed the flavour of tea with bitter orange pieces. On his return to London he replaced the orange with bergamot and the tradition was born.
