Lady Grey Tea is a more delicate variation of Earl Grey tea, and is only sold by Twinings, an English marketer of tea.
If you are a fan of Earl Grey tea, this won’t be an exception. A dazzling citrus flavour and an enchanting fragrance are the perfect combination after a long day at work.
Curious? Wondering how did Lady Grey get into your tea cup? Want to know how can you get the best out of this delicious black tea and enjoy its health benefits?
Let’s not waste any time! Our new adventure is here and Lady Grey tea is our destination.
People used to say that Earl Grey tea caused rather strange impulses on women, so Lady Grey tea was invented to ease women’s minds and hearts. Tale or not, Twinings created this new blend in 2006 to commemorate their 300th anniversary.
Just like Earl Grey Tea, which was named after Charles Grey, an English prime minister, Lady Grey tea was named after Mary Elizabeth Grey, Charles’s wife.
This flavoured tea is a blend of black tea leaves, with an astonishing fragrant oil of bergamot. Now this is where Lady Grey differs from Earl Grey tea. To make it less strong and gentler, Seville orange and lemon peel are added.
The presence of bergamot oil is not that strong as in Earl Grey tea which means that the black tea leaves used to make this new blend have to be of very good quality.
Look inside your cup and behold that mahogany beautiful colour. Now inhale that fragrance. All of this is ready to offer you a world of pleasure and benefits. A world that will protect you and your loved ones!
Let’s travel to the world of Lady Grey tea and have a sip of each powerful benefit. Come along!

Although it has less caffeine than Earl Grey tea, it is still a black tea which may contain between 25-110mg per serving.
It is healthier than coffee, yes, but if you are pregnant or breastfeeding you should reduce your caffeine intake and consult your doctor about this matter.
Bergamot oil is wonderful! It has such a pleasant fragrance and it helps fight depression. However, when consumed excessively it can cause muscle cramps, muscle twitching, blurred vision or convulsions.
Again if you are pregnant this is another reason for you to consult your doctor before drinking this tea.
