Cream of Earl Grey is delightful twist on a classic. It features the same bergamot flavour you love in Earl Grey, with sweet notes of vanilla and cream.
Earl Grey tea has been around for a long time, and was popularized the Charles Grey, an Earl of England. The story goes like this:
A British diplomat saved the life of a Chinese bureaucrat, and as a gift of gratitude, he was given the recipe of blending black tea with bergamot oil. When the diplomat returned home he presented the tea and the recipe to Charles, and the rest is history!
Although Charles probably never got to taste the decadent sister to his flagship Earl Grey tea, we think he would have loved it. It’s a delightful black tea that goes with nearly anything. It’s a hit at breakfast, afternoon tea, and as an after dinner treat. That is, as long as you can handle some evening caffeine.
