For many, Earl Grey is the afternoon tea of choice, enticingly light and infused with bergamot to give it the exotic flavour and aroma that we all love.
Earl Grey is a lightly perfumed, classic blend of quality Indian and China teas and is a quintessentially English tea. It takes its name from the 1830s English Prime Minister, Charles Grey, although the true origin of the tea is uncertain. A luxurious afternoon tea, it was originally drunk almost exclusively by aristocrats, lightly brewed and usually without milk.
Nowadays there are few people who haven't savoured the aromatic taste of a good cup of Earl Grey. Whittard's blend is outstanding with just the right balance of bergamot. It is a favourite afternoon tea, drunk with or without milk.

Whilst i have been ordering Earl Grey teabags online for several years without complaint, the last batch arrived a week ago and my wife who is the only user, says they taste like Lady Grey and not Earl Grey, although the packaging does say Earl Grey. She has opened another box and it tastes the same as the first box. She is reluctant to open yet another box in case it is the same. Has anyone else noticed this ?
Since I find this Earl Grey tea given my friend who got it in UK, I can not be through everyday without drinking! I live in Japan. But I wanted to get this tea packed in UK and ordered online. Thanks for the super flavor tea!
This is the best Earl Grey Tea EVER! I'm addicted! Unfortunately our local store (Kroger's) has stop carrying it so I'll be ordering online.
The best Earl Grey that I`ve ever tasted. Congratulations
I discovered Whittards Earl Grey while visiting my sister in Scotland. I immediately fell in love with it & try to order a few boxes every year to have shipped to me in the United States. One day I hope a Whittards store finds it's way to America's West Coast. Thank You Whittards!
