Earl Grey, the Tea

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.

Rose Earl Grey is a delicate, smooth tasting variant of the original.

Brilliant! Verified Purchase

As a fan of rose, and of Earl Grey, I took a punt on this, and I'm so glad I did. The flavours work so well together, and I couldn't be more impressed with it.

Best rose tea on the market Verified Purchase

This Rose Earl Grey tea is not only the best tasting but the best value as well because I only have to use a couple of teaspoonfuls to make a potful that holds two mugs of this wonderful brew. Its delicate and refreshing.

Great colour

Very tasty!

We like this mix a lot, and routinely enjoy it once a day. It isn't overpowering with bergamot, but nicely balanced with the delicious fragrance of roses. A recent visitor wanted to know what type of Earl Grey it was and took details!

A little disappointing.

We love Rose Congou and Rose Pouchong and since we also love Earl Grey we thought this would be a sure favourite. To be frank neither of us could taste any rose and so it was just quite bland tea, not unpleasant, just lacking any real rose flavour. It wasn't even as good as ordinary Earl Grey, maybe we got a bad batch, but it was disappointing really.
