Earl Grey tea is a famous tea blend, which is loved by millions of people all over the world. Earl Grey is not a registered trademark, and numerous tea companies produce their own versions of Earl Grey tea, using a wide variety of tea leaves and additives.

The Earl Grey blend, or Earl Grey's Mixture, is assumed to be named after Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, who was British Prime Minister in the 1830s. According to one legend, a grateful Chinese Mandarin whose son was rescued from drowning by one of Lord Grey’s men first presented the blend to the Earl in 1803. The tale is probably not true, as Lord Grey never set foot in China. However, it was accepted as an official version by the Twinings company, which has been producing Earl Grey for over 200 years.
