Why is it called Earl Grey Tea

Earl grey is named after the British Prime Minister of Britain who received a gift from an official in China. The rest of the story becomes rumors and somehow legendary for others. Earl Grey Tea is a kind of black tea that contains half per cent of caffeine that a usual cup of coffee has. This tea derived from West Country becomes prominent around the world because of the sour orange that made its taste a zesty one. The sour orange that I am talking about is what we call or others commonly know as Bergamot Orange, a green lemon-like citrus fruit that grows in Southern Italy and Southern France during winter season. It is not actually harvested for juice consumption but for medical purposes. Bergamot Orange is found to be a cure for some illness. The oil extracted from it also adds citrusy flavor to the Earl Grey Tea making it more admirable to drink.

What makes Earl Grey special?

Since the Bergamot oil is said to be used as a medicine, it brings our body a lot of benefits. Some people uses Bergamot oil in treating psoriasis by applying it directly on skin and others used it as “aromatherapy” to trim down nervousness during radiation treatment. In manufacturing products, Bergamot Orange is commonly used as citrus lotions, creams, soaps, perfumes and the likes.
