    The Earl Grey Green Tea blend from English Tea Store features all-natural bergamot oil with an excellent Ceylon green tea to produce a lively and sprightly Earl Grey.

    While Earl Grey black tea is the namesake of Charles, the 2nd Earl of Grey, it is a little known fact that Earl Grey green tea is named after Sir Albert Henry George, the 4th Earl of Grey who lived between 1851 and 1917. Sir Albert Henry George served as Canada's Governor General, (the Queen of England's Canadian representative) from 1904 to 1911. It was during his tenure in this position that the tea that bears his name was first brewed.

    The incident occurred when Sir Albert made a visit to Newfoundland, which was then still part of England. The people of Newfoundland, as everyone knows, are great drinkers of tea, consuming more cups per capita than any other province or state in North America. Upon the arrival of the noble Sir Albert, a magnificent tea party was planned on the front lawn of the Newfoundland parliament. The food was ordered a month in advance. The tables were set up days in advance. Everything was going off without a hitch until 2 days before the party when the government's storage shed was struck by lightning. The fire started by the strike burnt their entire stock of Earl Grey tea. Here's where it got interesting. A scrappy young lad named Angus Mcafee recalled that he had seen a few fresh barrels of bergamot down on his grandfather's dock in the harbor just in from the West Indies. He also knew that his other grandfather, who dabbled in the tea trade, had just received a shipment of green gunpowder tea from Ceylon. He put two and two together and spent the next 48 hours blending the tea and the bergamot together in an old barrel.

    The result was served at the garden party to great fanfare. Sir Albert was delighted with the innovation and recommended that young Angus ship over to England to be knighted by the Queen herself. (No one is sure if Angus ever became Sir Angus - the records have been lost.) And what did Sir Albert like so much about the tea? The answer is in the way the sweet bergamot blends with the slightly smoky profile of this green gunpowder tea.

    Caffeine content: Low - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of green tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 22 to 29 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: Very High - The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.
