The Story Behind The Tea

Earl Grey is said to be named after Earl Charles Grey. He was the second Earl Grey & the Prime Minister of England between 1830-1834. There are two popular stories around this tea's name.

One story goes that Charles Grey saved the son's life of a Chinese tea blender who then created Earl Grey tea as a token of gratitude.

Another story is that Charles Grey commissioned a Chinese gentleman tea merchant to create a tea blend to suit the water at Howick Hall in Northumberland. 


Tea was the choice beverage in those time by those who could afford it and Earl Grey became the choice of the aristocrats.
