The history of Earl Grey, outside of speculation, is a mystery. Before it was known by its prestigious name, this beverage was likely scented with bergamot oil for preservation reasons rather than for pure taste. But why, you might be asking, was this tea named after a man who later became a British Prime Minister during the 19th Century? One story suggests that Earl Grey Tea got its name after a diplomatic trip to China allegedly made by the man himself, Lord Earl Grey.

According to this tale, Earl Grey (or one of his men, depending on the version of the tale) saved a boy from drowning in a river somewhere in China. When the boy was returned to his home, the father was so overcome with gratitude that he gifted Earl Grey with tea scented with bergamot oil. The tea was eventually named in his honour. However, it should be noted that no such diplomatic trip has ever been documented and, in fact, Earl Grey never visited China. As a result, the story is considered unfounded.

Whatever its origins, Earl Grey Tea bags has become one of the most popular Flavoured Black Teas in the world. For well over a century it has been a beverage largely associated with English upper-class gentry. However, you do not need to be a Lord, a Count, or even an Earl to enjoy this flavoursome brew. Earl Grey is no longer just a tea for lavish halls and country homes; it is no longer brought in on silver trays to be poured into decorative chinaware. Earl Grey Tea is, quite simply, for everyone.

This is according to a collaborative study conducted in conjunction with the College of Dentistry at the University of Iowa and the Institute of Odontology at Göteborg University in Sweden. Ultimately, it was discovered that black tea could decrease plaque and bacteria levels in the mouth. This is because the Polyphenolic compounds present in Black Tea can kill or suppress cavity-causing bacteria from either growing or producing acid.
