Our Earl Grey is a sophisticated brew perfect for the discerning tea lover. Soothing yet uplifting, it is one of our customers' highest-rated teas.
For this blend, our Tea Masters balance teas from East Africa and India. They use a high proportion of quality Kenyan leaves to give the brew its lively, brisk flavour. Our exclusive bergamot flavouring is then added to enhance the tea with its exotic citrus fragrance.
So whether you drink yours lightly brewed in the morning, with a slice of lemon after lunch, or strong and milky in the afternoon, you get a freshly aromatic infusion in every cup.
Earl Grey tea was named in honour of 19th Century British Prime Minister Charles Grey. We think our version makes a fine tribute, especially with Thomas Picken's "The New Houses of Parliament" painting on the box (not on the 50 Round Teabags box). Our Earl Grey is much-loved by our customers and has even won a Great Taste award. The judges praised the tea for its balance and singled it out as ‘a sound example of a strong Earl Grey.’

Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
