Description

One of our most popular blends, The Staunton Earl Grey is a rich-bodied, vibrant and refreshing black tea with the elegant and aromatic natural flavours of Neroli and Bergamot. Also available: loose leaf tea caddy and pyramid teabags. The true origins of Earl Grey tea remained a mystery until recent research revealed that the use of orange flavouring with tea was first observed in China in 1793 by The East India Company botanist Sir George Staunton. He witnessed the Chinese scenting their teas with bitter orange blossoms called Neroli. Bergamot, commonly used in most Earl Grey tea today, is a subspecies Neroli, the original flower used in China. Sir Joseph Banks, to whom Staunton reported his findings, experimented with various flavourings, and thus the recipe was devised long before Earl Grey popularised it. We use the original blossom, Neroli, together with Bergamot to create our Earl Grey, the only blend which can be said to authentically contain the original Chinese recipe.
