Earl Grey is a black tea blend that is flavoured with oil from bergamot, a citrus fruit mostly grown in Italy. 
The original tea was a gift for the Prime Minister by a Chinese Mandarin after a British diplomat saved his son from drowning. The diplomat later became the second Earl Grey, and then Prime Minister himself in the 1830s. However, stories vary and none can ever be truly substantiated.
Nevertheless, it’s a classic tea and ours is a fine combination of high grown Ceylon tea with a smooth, top grade Keemun, premium natural bergamot oil and decorative blue cornflowers. The result is an amazing and refined Earl Grey.


With its light elegant flavour it’s one of our most popular blends here at the Scottish Tea House.
