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.
