About Earl Grey, the Tea and our Tea Creation

Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus fruit bergamot - a sort of orange. The stories of Earl Grey are numerous. One such tale tells how a British diplomat on a mission to China saved the life of a Mandarin and as a gift of gratitude was given the recipe for this flavoured tea. This diplomat upon his return to Britain presented the tea to the Prime Minister of the day, Earl Grey. Another story says that it was the Prime Minister himself who saved the life of the Mandarin. In any event it was the Prime Minister of England (1830 to 1834) Earl Grey who made this tea fashionable.

Dorian Grey is a sophisticated variant of the original and was blended by a great fan of Oscar Wilde who was trying to show that tea, like Dorians beauty, is ephemeral. Once used the tea whithers and dies, but the beauty of tea lives on.
