The exact origin of the Earl Grey blend remains a mystery, with various tales attributing its creation to different events. One such story suggests that the blend was developed by a Chinese mandarin tea master as a gift for Lord Grey, specifically designed to counteract the hard water at his Howick Hall estate. The addition of bergamot oil not only helped to soften the taste of the water but also added a unique and fragrant flavor that would become the hallmark of Earl Grey tea.
