This immensely popular black tea is named after British Prime Minister Earl Grey, and since the 1830's it has been considered a classic. Earl Grey is not a type of tea, rather, it is a blend, black tea blended with a robust portion of a beautifully aromatic oil of Italian bergamot.
Tea Profile Golden amber liquor, medium-bodied and deep, with a robust bergamot linger. Taste and Strength Smooth and refined, with a classic character. When to Drink Ideal at any time of day, but provides for an especially pleasant morning awakening.
