Darling Grey Loose Tea

A refreshing twist on our classic Earl Grey, Darling Grey delivers a sunny burst of citrus with bright notes of orange & lemon peel. Balanced by its black tea base, fragrant bergamot and a delicate scattering of orange blossom petals, this is a blend to revive the spirits come the afternoon.
Known for its distinct bergamot aroma, Earl Grey tea has become firmly ensconced as an afternoon tea classic. Our Darling Grey gives a light twist on the traditional blend, with orange and lemon dancing on the tongue. Its brightness matched perfectly by a backdrop of fine Chinese black tea, and a mild smokiness.

More about this Tea
Aromatic citrus flavours balanced by floral notes
Lemon drizzle cake
With its distinct notes of citrus, this blend evokes playground memories of the poem, “Oranges and Lemons says the Bells of St Clements”. Thought to refer to the Church of St Clement Danes, we’ve given this tea the number 920 after the date 31 March 1920, when the church’s bells first rang out the famous nursery rhyme.
Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.
