Additional Information

  • Description
    Our take on the quintessential British blend of fine Chinese and Ceylon black tea is perfectly balanced with flavours of citrusy bergamot weve 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 weve given our individually wrapped Earl Grey teabags a whole new look, with a pattern inspired by vintage designs (and our blends sprinkling of cornflowers). Its a very pretty addition to your kitchen and an ideal gift for a tea lover. Contains: 25 Individually wrapped teabags
