Additional Information

Our take on the quintessential British blend of fine Chinese and Ceylon black tea is perfectly balanced with flavours of citrusy bergamot – we've even added a scattering of blue cornflower petals for an elegant final flourish. Renowned for its wonderful bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic.

  • Full Description

    The story goes that the iconic blend was specially created for Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, in reward for saving the son of a Chinese mandarin from drowning. When his supplies of the tea had run out, the earl commissioned British tea blenders to recreate the taste. A few decades later, Walter Whittard devised his own signature version which took the tea auctions by storm. Have a taste, and find out what all the fuss was about.

    As part of the beautiful Tea Discoveries range, we've created a bespoke caddy for our Earl Grey with a pattern inspired by the cornflowers we use in our blend. It’s a very pretty addition to your kitchen and an ideal gift for a tea lover.

    Our caddies are stackable for easy, organised storage and neat kitchen displays. Now there's no excuse not to add to your tea caddy collection...
