The Mystery of Earl Grey
Where did it all begin for Earl Grey Tea? No one knows. There is, however, one interesting, if unfounded, theory. The story goes that Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey travelled to China on a diplomatic mission. While there, he saved a young boy from drowning in a river.
The boy’s father, overcome with gratitude, gifted the Earl with Black Tea leaves scented with bergamot oil. In time, the beverage took his name, too.
However, it’s worth noting that the 19th century Prime Minister never made such a trip to China. As a result, the story is little more than a myth. The fact of the matter is that we’ll likely never know the truth.
Thankfully, though, that has no impact on the enticing taste of Earl Grey Tea with Cornflowers! Why not find out for yourself today? You won’t be disappointed.

Benefits of Earl Grey Tea with Cornflowers
Did you know that Earl Grey with Cornflowers can enhance cognitive function? A study conducted at the University of Singapore and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has the answers.
The research project saw some 2,500 participants aged 55 or over undergo cognitive measuring. Two years later, scientists remeasured those involved. The results established that participants who drank two or three cups of Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of suffering from cognitive decline.
Those who drank six to ten cups a day, meanwhile, had up to a 63% lower chance.
