|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 slightly flavoured with fine bergamot oil. 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.
Named after Charles Earl Grey, the British Prime Minister in the 1800’s, Earl Grey tea has since been made popular worldwide by the distinct flavor and aroma of its black tea leaves blended with bergamot oil.
