Earl Grey, the classic black china tea is scented with a dash of oil from the citrus fruit bergamot, for that discreetly distinctive and refreshing sensation. This vital ingredient was presented to the second Earl Grey, who was the British Prime Minister of the time, by an envoy on his visit to China in 1830. This light tea, pale gold in colour, has been served in the gilded china of the drawing rooms of England ever since and is for most now the first Earl Grey that springs to mind.

You could be forgiven for not knowing about the appearance of the bergamot fruit. I don't know why but we never see them on our market stalls or supermarket shelves. The first time I saw one was in a friend's garden in Cyprus. It was just ripening into a handsome looking sphere somewhere in size between a grapefruit and an orange.

As with so many of our Tea Grades we only stock the very top! So, if brewing our version of this classic blend for the first time you should steel yourself for our Finest Earl Grey 'Extra Scented'.
