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. 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.

As Prime Minister between 1830 and 1834, the very same Earl Grey presided over the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833. We've numbered this tea 33, to mark the date.
