Ever wondered what exactly earl grey is? What is that iconic flavour?
The classic earl grey flavour comes from bergamot oil, which is oil extracted from the peel of a citrus fruit called bergamot.
Earl grey tea is well known as a British favourite, and it was made popular by Charles Grey. He was the 2nd Earl of Grey and Prime Minister of Britain from 1830-1834.
The most popular story of how Charles Grey brought earl grey tea into our modern lives 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 bergamot oil. When the diplomat returned home he presented the tea and the recipe to Charles, and the rest is history!
Now you can enjoy this small tid bit of history as you enjoy the varieties in your earl grey tea collection.
