A classic blend paying homage to British prime minister Earl Charles Grey, who is said to have received gifts of tea and bergamots from Chinese diplomats. During the long journey, the tea absorbed the fragrance of the bergamots it was bundled with. A black tea flavoured with bergamot essential oil. Highly aromatic, refreshing and citrusy.
Bergamot, a fruit with strong aromas that lie somewhere between lemon and grapefruit, is believed to be a hybrid of the Citrus limetta and Citrus aurantium species.
