Charles Grey, the 2nd Earl of Grey was Prime Minister of UK from 1830 - 1834.  In his capacity as Prime Minister, he also wrote and signed many important government bills. Perhaps one of the most important of these was an act to abolish slavery in the colonies. This act put an end to the centuries' old slave trade between Africa, Europe and the New World.

To honor the man and his contribution to a better world for all,  a new variation of Earl Grey was created.  To start, rather than use a base blend of Chinese tea, the traditional Earl Grey base, this blend starts with a very flavory blend of high grown, seasonal Ceylon teas from Sri Lanka. Next, as a reference to his abolition of the slavery of the African people, the blend is bolstered with a fabulous BOP grade (Broken Orange Pekoe) from Tinderet estate in Kenya. Then all-natural oil of bergamot to create the tell-tale bite of citrus. The resulting cup is wonderfully rich and robust, laden with round notes of malt and superlative bergamot character. You've never had Earl Grey like this!
