Earl Grey Black Tea - 1/2 lb. Bag

Loose leaf black tea.
Product Description


    Earl Grey is named after its English benefactor, Charles Earl Grey, who for a short time served as Prime Minister under King William IV in the 1830's. The unusual flavoring that makes Earl Grey so magnificent is the oil of bergamot, which is in the citrus family. Bergamot comes from the Turkish word for "prince's pear" and describes a pear shaped citrus that is grown around the Mediterranean. The oil is pressed from the rind and is used for perfume as well as our Earl Grey tea. We take the concentration of this exotic flavor and blend it with mild teas of China and Sri Lanka. The aroma and flavor of the bergamot shine through and create a lovely tea. Legend has it that a Chinese mandarin man may have given this tea with bergamot oil to Earl Grey as a gift to thank him for one of Lord Grey's men saving his drowning son. He enjoyed it so much the secret recipe was passed onto him. Some other fun facts are that this is the reported favorite tea of Fictional characters James Bond 007, Bruce Wayne from Batman and Frasier from the TV series. This is one of those teas that really stand out from the pack; it is very distinctive and enjoyable.

    This gourmet black tea is in loose leaf form.
