Stories about the origins of Earl Grey Tea are numerous! One thing for sure - it was the Prime Minister of England (1830-1834) Earl Grey who made this tea fashionable. The traditional recipe for this tea is a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with oil from the citrus bergamot fruit, a type of orange. The bergamot oil is what makes Earl Grey Tea leaves strongly and uniquely scented.
