Earl Grey Flavours from Twinings

Discover our Range

Sometimes it feels like Earl Grey has practically become synonymous with Twinings. It was invented at our shop on the Strand in 1831 at the behest of the Prime Minster, Charles Grey, the second Earl Grey. And we named it after him.

But Earl Grey tea, believe it or not, is not its own category of tea. It falls into the category of flavoured teas. Flavoured teas include any type of tea - white, green, oolong, black - that has been scented or flavoured with fruit, flowers, spices, oils, extracts, and natural or artificial flavours.

This being the case, Earl Grey tea is not as simple as it first appears.

Our master blenders have exploited the freedom that being a “flavoured tea” brings; flavour meaning the distinctive taste of a food or a drink. Traditional Earl Grey has, of course, a very distinctive flavour – perfumed as it is with the smell and taste of bergamot. But we have a veritable plethora of variations on the theme of this beloved tea.

Read on as we give you the full kaleidoscope of Earl Grey flavours and infusions to tickle your taste buds.

Earl Grey Types

Traditional Earl Grey tea is a national favourite – black tea flavoured with bergamot and notes of lemon – and the Twinings range includes classic Earl Grey flavours that come in a variety of “types” such as decaffeinated, organic, blended or infused with other flavours and teas (such as green tea… yummy!)

Tea Bags Or Loose Leaf

Today our Earl Grey comes in all varieties: Loose Tea caddies with stylish designs, perfect for tea aficionados and turning tea times into a bit of an occasion, our silky pyramid tea bags for an easy to facilitate loose leaf experience, string & tag tea bags, as well as regular tea bags in our brand new boxes containing foil sealed wrapping for extra freshness.

Earl Grey with our without milk

Earl Grey, and any of its blended flavours, can be enjoyed at any time of day, with or without milk, a slice of lemon, or a drop of honey.

Lady Grey

If you're after something really refreshing why not try our lightly zingy Lady Grey? Inspired by rolling orange and lemon groves, we developed Lady Grey for Earl Grey lovers who wanted something a little bit fruitier.

We couldn't possibly play favourites, but Lady Grey will always have a special place in our hearts. Lady Grey tea is a modern invention, created by and trademarked by Twinings in the early 1990s to appeal to the Nordic market, which found Earl Grey tea too strong in flavour. Lady Grey differs from Earl Grey in that it contains additional lemon peel and orange peel. It first went on sale in Norway in 1994 and in Britain in 1996.
