Blend Story

Sitting with the emperor, I shared a pot of tea. The tea's beguiling fragrance induced a state of tranquility. Pleased, the emperor said, "A special blend to honour our friendship. It bestows peace on those who drink it." - Charles the Earl of Grey, 1834

Whether there ever was a real Earl of Grey who drank tea, especially this blend, is subject to debate. However, what we do know is that the Earl Grey blend is named after the second Earl Grey, the British Prime Minister in the 1830s who sold Chinese tea under the brand name of “Earl Grey Tea.”

"I love Tealeaves tea. I use the Earl Grey tea for my Earl Grey Opera cake and macaroons." - ICON Fumiko Moreton
