Nothing like the Earl Grey to start your day.This blend is blended with our farm grown Organic Roses. Rose Earl is also know as French Earl Grey. I have written a few of my books powered by Earl alone. The Earl Grey blend, or "Earl Grey's Mixture", is assumed to be named after Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s and author of the Reform Bill of 1832. He reputedly received a gift, probably a diplomatic perquisite, of tea flavored with bergamot oil. According to one legend, a grateful Chinese mandarin whose son was rescued from drowning by one of Lord Grey's men first presented the blend to the Earl in 1803. The tale appears to be apocryphal, as Lord Grey never set foot in China and the use of bergamot oil to scent tea was then unknown in China. Ingredients: Organic Black Tea. Rose Petals, Bergamot Oil. Caffeinated How to Brew: Use 1 Teaspoon of loose leaf tea per 8 ounces of 205 degree water for 3-5 minutes.
