Queens Earl Grey, Darjeeling

The regalest Earl Grey style tea available. Carefully chosen tea leaves from the Darjeeling region delicately infused with natrual oil. If you look at the leaves in this blend you can see the lightly coloured tips.

The history of Earl Grey tea has been one of speculation for over a century. One of the claims is that it was created by accident. A ship transporting tea and bergamot oil had a an issue where the bergamot oil spilt onto the tea. Throwing out the tea would have been costly for the ships owner, Lord Grey. Therefore he taste tested the tea with a group of friends and they were impressed by the slightly bitter, citrus flavour. This was truly a fortunately accident if it was how Earl Grey tea was introduced to the market.
