Our Earl Grey is based on Chinese Black Tea. The tea gets its unusual flavor from oil of Bergamot, which is extracted from the rind of the small acidic Bergamot orange (Citrus bergamia).

Earl Grey tea was named after Charles Grey, the second earl in his line. He was Prime Minister to King William IV in the early 19th century. It is said that the Earl was given the recipe by a Chinese mandarin with whom he was friends, and whose life he had saved.
