Earl Grey is named after its English benefactor, Charles Earl Grey, who for a
short time served as Prime Minister (1830 – 1834) under King William IV.
The unusual flavoring that makes Earl Grey so special is the oil of Bergamot
which comes from the pear shaped citrus grown throughout the
Mediterranean. The oil is pressed from the rind and is used for perfume as
well as great tasting Earl Grey tea. The essence of this exotic flavor is
blended with only premium high mountain grown Ceylon tea from Nuwara
Eliya, Dimbula and Uva districts. This flavored black tea is sure to delight
your senses, and is the perfect accompaniment with cakes and pastries.
