This classic black tea is the namesake of Charles Grey, Britain's Prime Minister during the 1830's. After saving the life of a Chinese nobleman, the Earl Grey received a gift of citrus blossom-scented tea traditionally known as Tai Tai Cha. Tea salons throughout Europe replicated this blend by "perfuming" black teas with the aromatic oil of Italian bergamot oranges. Thus, a timeless tea was born.
