Loose Leaf Earl Grey Tea
(Contains Caffeine)

Loose leaf earl grey tea - why kings, queens and Star Trek actors love this beverage.  Our unique  Embassy House Teas© blend produces a loose leaf earl grey tea loved by our customers.  Iced Earl is becoming by far our best seller.  Taste it for yourself.

This blended Chinese tea was introduced to England around 1820. Historians speculate that a Chinese Mandarin specifically blended Chinese tea with Bergamot oil to camouflage the lime taste of well water for the 2nd Earl of Grey at his Howick estate.  Adding more cache to this tea mystery, Grey would later be elected as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the early 1830’s.

Legend contradicts the tea origin into England by speculating that the tea blend was a gift to the Earl from a Mandarin for saving his child from drowning.

Interestingly, the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), placed a call to its contributors to add to the mystique of this excellent tea.

Back to history, and back to the future, we must also recognize the brand building effects of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame, as perhaps the most well-known spokesperson for the tea.
