Earl grey tea has been a staple for a long time, and is well known as a British favourite. However, like most teas, it actually originates in China.

Earl grey tea 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 with bergamot oil. When the diplomat returned home he presented the tea and the recipe to Charles, and the rest is history!

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.

This makes earl grey tea very versatile, which is how we end up with awesome variations such as:

Lavender Earl Grey

Cream of Earl Grey

Green Earl Grey

Earl grey has also gone on to become the iconic flavour of “London Fog”, which was apparently created by a woman in Vancouver.

If you were at the Taste of Edmonton food festival in 2019, I hope you had the chance to try our London Fog Crème Brûlée.

London Fog is a flavour, that is the mixture of earl grey, cream, vanilla, and sugar. You can make it as a drink, ice cream, cheese cake, or crème brûlée.

    Lovely standard Earl Grey and as expected with great aroma and quality ingredients. If I’m going to compare this vs. Lavender Earl Grey I would choose the Lavender option as it has that extra special added flavour note to it.

    If I could give this 10 stars I would. Absolutely lovely fragrance that translates into the most amazingly delicious tea. Also perfect for tea lattes. I like to sweeten mine with maple syrup.
