More begamot than our regular Earl Grey


Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with the oil from the citrus bergamot fruit - 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 it was the Prime Minister himself who saved the Mandarin. In an event it was the Prime Minister of England (1830-1834) Earl Grey who made this tea fashionable.

This tea has higher levels of high-quality bergamot on a top quality tea leaf base, giving a rich, smooth taste that is superior to the regular Earl Grey.

This tea is sourced from tea plantations that are monitored by the Ethical Tea Partnership, meaning a fairer deal for the growers and workers, and a more environmentally friendly way to produce tea.

Simpli-Special Serving Suggestions

Some people enjoy this tea with a little milk, or their favourite alternative, although many enjoy Earl Grey without.

Some people like to add a little honey or sugar, which can even work as a milk substitute.

Try creating your own variations on this strong Earl Grey base. Lavender is always a great one for Earl Grey - just use it sparingly - a little of our lavender flowers will go a long way. This makes a relaxing version of the classic. If you like our Lavender Earl Grey, then try adding 3-6% Lavender Flowers to this.

Also delicious iced and cold-brewed.

Iced Tea
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - double the amount of tea per cup is recommended.
When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice and then serve.

Cold Brew
For a smoother taste experience.
Place the tea in a jug and add cold water.
Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge).
Strain and enjoy.

Great Earl Grey Tea

Loved the Supreme Earl Grey so much I also bought a large pack of Rose Earl Grey which tastes very similar to my favourite cuppa when out at one of the biggest cafe chains. Fantastic tea and brilliant service.
