Our Classic Blend. In 1831 we created Earl Grey tea in our shop on the Strand on the request of the Prime Minister. He loved it so much he gave his name to it. Before long it had taken London by storm and it is still a firm favourite amongst people who like things with a twist. What Does it Taste Like? Our classic Earl Grey. A delicate tea with a delicious twist of citrusy bergamot. 50 Tea Bags Per Pack.
