Earl Grey Classic


Symmetry in motion. Citrusy and bright on top, smooth and robust on the bottom. A garnet-red jewel of the tea world.

SKU: BBT-EGCT Category: Tags: ,


Our Earl Grey Classic gives these two old friends equal opportunity to shine: the citrus never overwhelms the tea, and vice versa. For a smooth and complex standalone cuppa, steep for 3 minutes. On the other hand, if you like milk and sweetener, try a 4-minute steep.

Earl Grey, the world’s most popular tea blend, requires only two ingredients: black tea and bergamot. This Mediterranean citrus thrives in only a few regions of the world, but ever since it hooked up with Earl Grey, it has landed teacups in every corner of the globe.

This famous blend is named after Charles Grey, a British prime minister in the 1830s. According to some histories, he received the flavored tea as a gift. Others say he rescued a Chinese Mandarin from drowning—even though Charles never traveled to China. Tea lore also claims the bergamot was added to make the tea taste more like a top-notch cultivar.

Lake Missoula Tea Company served Earl Grey Classic at its grand opening in 2012! Go ahead, reminisce about the old days, and check out our former retail space. Those were the days…

    This is my favorite tea. I have been drinking it for about two years. This is the best Earl Grey I have ever had. I am an avid tea drinker in my 60s. I am not a coffee drinker at all. I first tasted Lake Missoula Earl Grey tea at a little store in Lewistown, MT. The store has a mural of fish on the wall, I think trout. They had great cinnamon rolls too. I bought some of the Earl Grey from that little store and have been buying Lake Missoula tea ever since. I also like the Earl Grey Red.

I've been going to Lake Missoula Tea Company for years, and recently have had the privilege of putting some of their tea in my store. The quality of the tea is fantastic, and the blends are delightful. I have also attended one of their tasting / learning events and it was great. I highly recommend their downtown store for meeting with friends, family or even just for a nice place to go and have a cup of perfectly brewed tea.

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories

Best store in Montana possibly in all of the United States. I don't know. This is the first Gong Fu tea shop I've ever been to. I came in for a matcha whisk because I donated mine to a museum. Before I left a random customer who was introduced to me as a regular bought me tea. I hugged him which isn't something I normally do. But I was incredibly thankful. Then the man behind the counter gave me a free sample. I went in looking for a simple tool and left with tea and a happy spirit. I am looking forward to making it back as soon as possible! I loved it. I think it will always hold a special place in my blood pumping organ.

We are major tea snobs and I was absolutely delighted by this store. There are the usual suspects as well as shelves of unique, hand-picked teas. Highly recommend the Golden Snail :) It was really special being able to try whatever tea I wanted before buying. I'm looking forward to subscribing to their tea club. I would love to come back: everything was delicious.

Amazing tea! Beyond my expectations and well worth the stop! Delightful service and amazing blends! If you are in the area I would highly recognize them. I will be ordering blends online-they are so good!
