Since the 1820's, tea flavored with bergamot has been well known in England and spread around the world.
Evidence suggests that the name Earl Grey was given in honor of Charles Grey, the British Prime minister who served in that position from 1830-1834. This tea has become a staple in the cabinets of tea drinkers throughout the world. The bergamot oil used to flavor Earl Grey tea is made from the rind of a citrus fruit known as a bergamot orange. These oranges are traditionally grown in southern Italy and in southern France. The name itself is derived from the Italian word "bergomotta," which can be translated as "prince of pears."
Earl Grey tea has become popular as a baking ingredient and can be used to make delicious cupcakes, cookies, and mousse. A quick Internet search will reveal a number of excellent Earl Grey recipes that you can try.
