Additional Information

  • Description
    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.
  • Ingredients

    Black Tea, Orange Peel, Bergamot Flavouring, 1% Cornflower Petals.

    Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

    Gluten free.

    A really lovely tea. Floral flavour and extra fun as a loose tea because you get to see the cornflower petals in the mix!
    Earl Grey with a twist!

    I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed this tea, not normally an Earl Grey drinker. The subtle pleasant enhanced citrus (orange-y) fragrance was lovely Earl Grey with a twist!

    First time trying and it’s now going to be one of my favs. A great night time drink when you want to get cosy with a book. Subtle citrus taste really enhances the earl grey . 5 stars.

    I was given this today as a sample in store and told about the Top Tasters Programme. I am not generally an Earl Gray drinker however, I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed this. The orange fragrance was lovely and the taste was subtle. A great brew for a cold night. I would definitely buy this
    surprisingly good

    This is an Earl Grey

    Less perfumed smell than a few other Earl Grey teas on the market. Pleasant taste; quite Earl Grey-ish, yet one of the better I've had in a while.

Origin: Blended

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.

Black Tea

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.
