NUMEROLOGY

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.

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.
