I really love Earl Grey and the Best I have tasted yet is from Taylors of Harrogate.
Earl Grey is named after 2nd Earl Grey who was Prime Minister of Britain in the 1830's and the story goes that he received a gift of Black Tea scented with Bergamont Oil which he really liked and that is supposedly the start of this fabulous blend but the story has never been proved so it may be just a clever marketing ploy.
Earl Grey Tea is made from a blend of Black Teas most often Chinese and India Teas but sometimes Ceylon Teas are used. It is then Scented with Oil taken from the rind of the Bergamont which is a fragrant citrus fruit.
Taylors of Harrogate Earl Grey is a rich Black Tea and has a rather strong Bergamont taste which I really like and it is powerful and and extremly tasty with a very good and refreshing aroma.
And by the way if your really love your Tea, always use Loose Leaf Tea since only inferior Tea is used in Teabags.
In the Star Trek Next Generation Captain Picard really loved his Earl Grey as you can see from this video clip.
