Why an Indian Black tea is called Earl Grey?
What a wonderful name ‘Earl Grey’ the British gave to the Black tea! Of course after Earl Grey, The British Prime Minister. Our Darjeeling Earl Grey Tea is relaxing yet energetic. Earl Grey tea is infused with Lavender Seeds and Bergamot Orange. The Aroma is Malty Bergamot Orange. Tea and citruses go well together. Darjeeling Earl Grey Tea is a robust full-bodied blend with hints of citrus.
The man after whom the famous Earl Grey tea is named was born in England in 1764. His birth name was Charles, and he inherited the title of Earl Grey from his father. Earl Grey went on to become the British Prime Minister in 1830, inheriting that position from the famed Duke of Wellington (the man who defeated Napoleon). During Grey’s time in office, slavery was finally abolished in the British colonial empire.
Earl Grey tea, specific for containing bergamot oil, was named after Prime Minister Early Grey because he allegedly once received such tea as a gift. Bergamot (Latin: Citrus Bergamia) is a type of citrus fruit from which essential oil can be extracted. There is also a variant of Earl Grey tea called Lady Grey.
