You don’t have to be an Earl or a Duke or a Duchess to enjoy Earl Grey tea. We won’t even ask you to drink it with your pinky up. Enjoy as you are, because you’re great just the way you are. Really, it all brews down to this: you are a lively, tasteful, and interesting individual. Your tea should be too.
We created this citrusy Earl Grey tea by blending black tea with the finest bergamot oil, sourced from the sunny orchards of Calabria, Italy. You don’t have to be royalty to drink this bergamot tea, but you will feel like royalty. Cheers to that!
A Stash Tea best seller and long-time customer favorite! Earl Grey is black tea scented with bergamot, an oil extracted from a lime-shaped Mediterranean citrus about the size of an orange. Earl Grey brews up a beautiful amber cup with a distinctive flavor and lightly fragrant aroma.
Earl Grey is a versatile tea, at its best in the afternoon or after dinner. Delicious and flavorful plain, it may also be served with sugar and milk. Plus, it makes a wonderful, refreshing iced tea.
Stash uses superior grades of black tea for our Earl Grey. We strive for a distinctive tea flavor that is not overwhelmed by the pungent citrus, and we use only 100% pure bergamot oil, not a mixture.
Story has it that in 1830 Englishman Charles Earl Grey (the second Earl Grey, 1764-1845) was on a diplomatic mission to China, when a mandarin presented him with the recipe for making this distinctive tea. Now it is the most famous scented tea in the Western world.
