Even though its renowned flavour is particularly distinctive, Earl Grey is still predominantly a black tea, meaning its consumption ensures you obtain all the health benefits available within black tea whilst having the extra bonus of bergamot extract.
Meanwhile, the history of this beverage is not quite as clear as its scientific significance. Earl Grey Tea Is named after the British Prime Minister, Charles Grey, who was in office during the 1830’s. It is said that during a diplomatic trip to China, one of Lord Grey’s members of staff managed to save a local boy from drowning in the nearby river. The grateful father gave the Lord the gift of black tea, heavily scented with Bergamot oil.
However, this theory is especially questionable accounting for the fact that the Earl never set foot in China! Despite this, it is largely considered that originally, pure Chinese teas were flavoured with fine oils from the Bergamot fruit in an attempt to preserve the tea during difficult journeys on trade routes. This theory certainly accounts for its flavour, but why it was named after the 2nd Earl of Grey remains a mystery!
