Harney & Sons HRP Earl Grey Imperial (30 Sachets)
Earl Grey Imperial is a blend of fine black teas, rich in natural Bergamot from Italy. What makes it different than the Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme and the other Earl Grey blends is the stronger body and stronger taste of lemony bergamot (as the British like it). Earl Grey Imperial was created as a part of the distinguished Harney & Sons Collection of historical English blends especially for the Historic Royal Palaces of England.
This tea was in the original five teas that made up the Harney & Sons Historic Royal Palace tea line. The tea is filled in a beautiful tin that is the colour of the sapphires found in the Tower of London's Crown Jewels.

About the Historic Royal Palaces Collection
Harney & Sons Fine Teas were invited by the Historic Royal Palaces of England (A non-profit organization that helps explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped the society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.) to create a notable and exquisite collection of English tea blends. Each unique tea blend pays homage to tea's imperial history and roots.
In 1660, the 17th-century diarist Samuel Pepys had his first ever 'Cup of Tea, a China drink', then only introduced to Britain. Catherine of Braganza, Charles II's tea-drinking queen, made it fashionable, Queen Anne would often enjoy a cup of tea at Hampton Court Palace and the double wedding of Queen Charotte's son at Kew in 1818 was celebrated with tea party. Until the abolition of import duties in 1784, tea was the expensive preserve of royalty and the rich. Despite its ubiquity in later times, tea is truly historic, royal tipple.

I love Earl Grey tea and am always looking for new ones. I have previously bought Earl and Harney Earl Grey Supreme which I like, but Earl Grey Imperial is a standout. It’s hard to stop at one cup

The Earl Grey tea has great flavour, and when enjoyed it relaxes you and is very calming as well.

I'm a huge fan of Earl Grey, as are many of my family members. This is by far the best Earl Grey we've ever had - I ordered 6 tins of the stuff to make sure we don't run out.
