  • Full Description

    Known for its distinct bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic. Our Smoky Earl Grey offers a refreshingly different blend that pays homage to its roots of Lapsang Souchong, a speciality of China’s Fujian Province, a smooth black tea smoked over resin-sweet pinewood. A cup where dark and rich flavours meet fragrant citrus for a surprising partnership that is sure to become a firm favourite.

NUMEROLOGY

The key component of this blend, Lapsang Souchong, had an unusual journey to British shores, travelling by the hands of the crown. We’ve numbered this tea after the year 1662, when Princess Catherine, who had long fallen in love with its unique taste, introduced it to Britain’s Royal Family.

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.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.

Smooth and Smoky

One to take you away from it all, our Smoky Earl Grey is a marriage of two worlds. Where deep, dark aromas flirt with bright and sweet citrus for a deliciously smooth finish.
