Earl Grey Tea

Nick Rose

Earl Grey Tea

Citrusy and with a hint of sweetness and spice, Earl Grey is a tea flavored with bergamot essential oil. While the history of Earl Grey tea is unclear, it most likely acquired its name from Earl Charles Grey, a 19th-century British Prime Minister who helped to popularize the tea. Today, Earl Grey is a well-loved classic.

Tea and Bergamot

Bergamot is a small, pear-shaped citrus fruit cultivated primarily in the Mediterranean. The aromatic essential oil pressed from the rind of bergamot has a slightly spicy, citrusy taste that, when added to tea, lends Earl Grey its distinctive flavor.

While bergamot is typically added to black tea to make a classic Earl Grey, the essential oil can be added to any type of tea to create a similar flavor. Whether enjoyed on its own or with a splash of milk and sugar, Earl Grey makes a lovely cup of tea no matter the variety.

Our Earl Greys

At ArtfulTea, we offer five versions of Earl Grey: three black teas, one green tea, and even an herbal infusion made with rooibos!

Our Organic Earl Grey is a true classic, blending Yunnan black tea with bergamot essential oil from Italy to create a rich tea with a smooth, citrusy flavor. Earl Grey Français is made with bergamot from France, and is an exceptionally aromatic and flavorful blend with a touch of spice. Earl Grey Lavender blends Earl Grey tea with lavender blossoms from Provence to create a wonderfully relaxing tea with a soothing floral note.

Interested in Earl Grey with a twist? Our Green Tea Citrus is a delicious variation on a timeless favorite, blending sencha green tea with bergamot, lemon peel, and orange blossoms. This version is a bit lighter than a traditional Earl Grey, with the vegetal sweetness of sencha acting as a perfect complement to bergamot’s citrusy spice.

Earl Grey Rooibos is a wonderful option for those looking to cut down on caffeine or for a soothing bedtime cup. Rooibos, a naturally caffeine-free herbal tea, is blended with bergamot to create a flavorful and aromatic cup that warms and soothes.

Whether you’re looking for a classic Earl Grey, or to explore the rich variety of bergamot flavored teas, we’re sure to have something that strikes your fancy!
