100% Guaranteed

Thank you! This year we planted 4,743 trees with WeForest and our packaging is 97% plastic free (working to 100%).

  • This classic Earl Grey is a quintessentially English afternoon tea that is fragrant, smooth and light. A unique blend crafted from selected single estate handpicked large leaf Keemun, Darjeeling and Ceylon teas; and delicately flavoured with pure Calabrian bergamot oil. An indulgent tea traditionally served black, but also delicious served with a dash of milk.

    Did you know? Earl Grey is named after the British Prime Minister Charles, 2nd Earl Grey (1830-1834). Legend has it while on a diplomatic mission to China; a mandarin confided the recipe in gratitude for saving his son’s life. Another version has an Indian rajah’s son rescued from a tiger by one of Grey’s servants. More likely, bergamot oil was brought to England, and thence to Grey’s tea, by British naval officers stationed in Corfu. Fictional Earl Grey lovers include Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek, Bruce Wayne (aka Batman), Frasier Crane and James Bond.

  • 100% Organic: Large loose leaf black teas (Assam, Darjeeling, Ceylon and Keemun), Italian pure bergamot oil.

    Full bodied, fragrant with hints of sweet citrus tannins. This blend of Earl Grey is light, and we suggest it's made black, paying attention not to over-infuse the first cup.

  • We created this as a slightly lighter than our Prince of Earl Grey blend with less China Keemun and higher proportions of Assam and Ceylon, without added vanilla or flowers - a good old-fashioned Earl Grey.

    We're absolutely delighted that this blend has been awarded a Great Taste award and continues to be our best selling organic Earl Grey tea in the UK and Europe.

The tea is fabulous , well packaged and arrived as expected.

Simply the best!

I’ve tried lots of different brands of Earl Grey tea and for me this one is by far the most superior. It is refreshing and subtlety fragranced and is the perfect tea for any time of the day.


Lovely fresh taste, beautifully packaged. Excellent customer service. Thankyou!

Great Tea

Fantastic blend. The bergamot oil does not overwhelm the tea taste like you find with other brands. And organic too! A real treat any time of day.
