1 reviews for Imperial Earl Grey

Thoroughly enjoying it!

I’m a huge fan of Earl Grey to begin with, and I was certain that from Chateau Rouge it was going to be good. And was it ever. First off, it smells absolutely amazing. It is definitely one of the most perfumed teas I have ever come across, and I love it!

Imperial Earl Grey

Black Tea

Blended Black Teas with Italian Bergamot Oil

The most English of all our teas. Many myths and recipes surround Earl Grey, whose distinctive flavour and aroma come from combining black teas with oil extracted from bergamot rind. For this blend we have blended premium grade southern Italian bergamot oil with Keemun, Assam, Darjeeling and Ceylon teas. Producing a light yet fragrant, and stylishly complex refreshing brew.

A special blend of orthodox black teas from Assam, Darjeeling, Ceylon and Keemun married with natural bergamot oil from Calabria, Italy. This blend of Earl Grey is light and we suggest it's drunk black, paying attention not to over-infuse the first cup.

 

Earl Grey is named after the British Prime Minister Charles, 2nd Earl Grey (1830-1834). Legend has it while on a diplomatic mission to China; a mandarin confided the recipe in gratitude for saving his son’s life. Another version has an Indian rajah’s son rescued from a tiger by one of Grey’s servants. More likely, bergamot oil was brought to England, and thence to Grey’s tea, by British naval officers stationed in Corfu. Fictional Earl Grey lovers include Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek, Bruce Wayne (aka Batman), Frasier Crane and James Bond.
