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.

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.
