Earl Grey Blue Lady Citrus Special Loose Leaf Black Tea One Of Our Top Ten Teas


  • It is said that Earl Grey (then British Prime Minister) popularised his namesake tea after a visit to China in 1830.
  • Unfortunately, there appears to be plenty of conflicting views on this fact.
  • What we can say is that the Chinese were first to include petals in tea, both for the aesthetic look as much as taste. 
  • To this fine quality black tea, has been added oil of Bergamot. Then it is blended with blue thistle, cornflower and mallow petals plus finally, oil of rose and grapefruit. It has a far more subtle taste if not left to stand for too long. 
  • Another well-known tea, Imperial Russian, originally from China, was the first to combine bergamot and citrus scents. 
  • You will receive 90 grams of this tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 45 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, this works out at eleven pence per cup.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
