Health Benefits

All black teas contain polyphenols which are powerful antioxidants and have great restorative powers.
Unlike the high levels of caffeine found in coffee, the low amounts in black tea promotes blood flow to the brain without overstimulating the heart.
The caffeine in black tea sharpens mental focus and concentration, and the trace element fluoride inhibits tooth decay. Black tea also contains abundant tannins which have a soothing anti-inflammatory effect on the digestive tract.
One cup of black or green tea has more antioxidant power than a serving of broccoli, carrots or spinach. (Prevention, 1998)
Black tea improves cardiac blood flow and coronary function and also improves endothelial function in the heard which improves vascular function. (Dr Renold Sebold, The Truth About Tea & Health part 1)

Bergamot has been documented as a healing fruit since the twelfth century. Its main properties are as a disinfectant and antidepressant, aiding relaxation.
It also combats halitosis and oral infections.

About Palace Earl Grey

Earl Grey teas have been familiar to tea connoisseurs in the UK since around the 1830s, but the history of this famous tea is a little fragmented and uncertain.

Earl Grey teas, or at least the flavouring of back tea with citrus oils, originated in China prior to the 19th Century. It is believed that the flavourings were added in order to mask the taste of lower-quality tea leaves so that they could be sold at a higher price. The first Western records of this practice come from around 1790 and involved the use of orange and neroli oils as flavourings.

As the flavouring of teas with oil became more popular in Chinese production, the same principles were eventually applied to flavouring higher-quality tea leaves and these were then exported to Western Europe as a brand new product.

At around the same time in the UK, some London tea vendors were found to be scenting black teas with bergamot oils from Italy, which at the time was very frowned upon and resulted in a number of lawsuits!

Eventually (by at least the 1850s), the flavouring of teas was widely accepted and Chinese black teas were regularly flavoured with bergamot in by companies in the UK. These bergamot-tea blends were referred to as either "Grey's Tea" or "Earl Grey" depending on where and by whim it was produced.

The names "Earl Grey" is somewhat controversial with a number of companies and individuals claiming to be the originators of the blend. The common legend states that the recipe for Earl Grey was presented to Charles Grey, Prime Minister of Great Britain and the 2nd Earl Grey by a grateful Mandarin after his son was saved from drowning by Grey (or one of his men) and it was consequently named after him. However, most scholars now believe this story to be false.

Others say that Earl Grey commissioned the blend from China in order to offset the taste of sediment in the natural waters of Northumberland. Apparently Lady Grey then popularised the blend in London and approved it for general sale.

Many companies have their own, closely-guarded recipe for Earl Grey, and Tea Palace's Palace Earl Grey is no different! We use high-quality Chinese black tea leaves and natural, pressed bergamot oil blended to our own unique recipe - so you can be sure of a cup of Earl Grey unlike any other!!
