Are you a tea lover?
There are countless tea varieties and flavors available worldwide, but one that has caught on extremely well over the past 150 years is Earl Grey.
The unique aroma of this tea is derived from oils of the rind of a bergamot orange. This a a highly fragrant orange available in China. How did a Chinese citrus lead to a very English name?
The Early Grey was the British prime minister in the 1830′s. Supposedly, his estate was one of the first to blend black tea leaves with bergamot, after receiving a gift from a diplomat that returned from China. The fragrant tea quickly rose in popularity and to this day enjoys worldwide success.
