Earl Grey big leaf tea has mild, tender taste, whereas small leaf tea gives strong, rich brew. This exquisite tea became popular in England at the residence of Prime Minister Earl Charles Grey II, when English diplomats brought him a recipe of flavouring tea with Bergamot oil (citrus fruit) as a present from the Chinese Mandarin. It became fashionable to serve Earl Grey’s tea in the afternoon in the best households of England.
