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.

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!
Great tea! Full of flavour, it really hits the spot!
I agree with Sarah Bradley this tea could be my Twinnings replacement. Finally got my earl grey tea back again thank you Whittards
Hi, I'm from Chile, South America. Here we don't have a big variety of tea, but yesterday I found this Whittard store and I bought this Earl Grey and is really a very good tea. Noted for its intense flavor of bergamot a pronounced acidity and a nice taste of black tea. For me, it is the best Earl Grey I could try. Thank you very much!
A very nice tea, appears to be a good quality tea leaf and could become our Twinings replacement. Lots of flavour, maybe too much (the bergamot is quite strong) but we are enjoying very much anyway. Thank you Whittards.
