Real Earl Grey tea 100g
Bergamot oil from the citrus fruit grown in the Calabria district in Italy had become popular in the 18th and 19th centuries as a flavouring for gin and snuff. It was brought to Joseph Banks attention who is known to have experimented with flavourings. He is credited with adding it to tea, and it was most likely given the name Earl Grey, since he was the popular Prime Minister of the time. We started scenting our Real Earl Grey in-house in the summer of 2015. This ensures that it is always freshly scented. We use a natural bergamot oil resulting in a more citrusy taste.
