Profile
In 1833, Earl Grey, the Earl of Howick Hall, at that time British Prime Minister, suspended the price monopoly which the East India Company had over the tea trade with China. The originally pure Chinese tea was lightly flavoured with the fine oil from the bergamot fruit. This additional fragrance, which was provided by the Chinese, was intended to protect the tea from the taste of mould and tar which could arise from the long voyage at sea to royal England. Thus this tea received its name, and still today Earl Grey is the embodiment of the finest English tea. Apart from the noble characteristic taste, the bright blue mallow blossoms give this popular English classic a touch of royal flair. The harmonious interaction of the slightly spicy tea base with natural bergamot flavouring lets every Earl’s heart beat faster!
