Baroness Grey Tea
Over the centuries, many women have held the title of Baroness Grey, but this tea was blended in honor of one woman in particular. British legend has it that this Baroness of Grey, who lived sometime in the 16th or 17th century, was married to a man who was a ship's captain in the Royal Navy. As the story goes, the ship never returned from a trading voyage to China. Refusing to believe that her husband would never return, the Baroness would walk to the port lands every morning to greet each ship in hope for news of her husband. Sadly, she continued this practice until the day she died.
In honor of the loyal Baroness, Baroness Grey Tea was blended with the traditional bergamot oil and the addition of rose and cornflower petals to represent the love she had for her husband, and orange peels and lime leaves to represent the bitter tears she shed over her beloved. The citrus peels included in this blend add a lovely tartness to the existing citrus flavor of the bergamot, making it a fantastic alternative to traditional Earl Grey. Use one teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes.

I find this tea quite nice for a relaxing day in the sun. It has a light flavor that makes me sigh and grin. It has been added to my favorites and it will be a staple in my house from now on.
Lovely, light, aeromatic. Soothing. Would definitely buy again.

When I first got this tea, I thought it was too strong on the citrus and not strong enough on the bergamot. Once I got used to that balance, though, the more times I had it, the more I enjoyed it. I prefer this to the Russian Earl Grey and will order this again once I finish that one up.

Good tea but not quite to my tastes.
