About Earl Grey T-Bags
This is the original blend from Twinings. Earl Grey is a light tea, pale gold in colour with the delicate flavour of bergamot. Ideal to drink at any time of the day.
Earl Grey is named after Charles, the 2nd Earl Grey, who was given a special blend of tea by a Chinese Mandarin. As this began to run out, the Earl asked Richard Twining to match it for him. From then on the blend became known as Earl Grey's tea.
