The Earl Grey
It is to the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830‘s that we owe thanks for this classic black tea. Earl Grey is one of the most famous tea blends – Sri Lankan Uva black tea flavoured with natural Bergamot, the oil from a vibrant citrus tree. The good Earl apparently fell in love with it after receiving a gift from a Chinese diplomat. Our Earl Grey adds an extra citrus twist from Lemon peel and a touch of colour from beautiful cornflowers.
Take four minutes of time to achieve perfection. Use one teaspoon per person and add freshly drawn boiling water. Enjoy with milk or black with a slice of lemon.
Style: mid-strength black tea flavoured with bergamot
Enjoy it: with smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, spiced lemon cake
