Renowned for its wonderful bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic. Our take on the quintessential British blend of fine Chinese and Ceylon black tea is perfectly balanced with flavours of citrussy bergamot – we've even added a scattering of blue cornflower petals for an elegant final flourish.
Black Tea, Orange Peel, Bergamot Flavouring, 1% Cornflower Petals.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Brew the Perfect cup
Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.
A History of Creativity
The typical taste of a classic Earl Grey might seem to be set in stone, but in fact it's always been open to experimentation. The story goes that Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, was first given the tea when he saved the life of the son of a Chinese Mandarin. When he ran out of supplies he asked for his favourite Chinese tea to be recreated by London tea blenders. The experimentation hasn't stopped since.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
