British Prime Minister Earl Grey gave his name to this hugely popular tea back in the 1830s, and ever since it has been thought of as a classic English afternoon tea. It is not a type of tea, but a flavour, made up of a simple black tea flavoured with aromatic and stimulating oil of bergamot.
For a proper cup of loose-leaf tea, the simple but elegant stainless steel tea strainer included will prove most useful. Engraved with Fortnum's logo, it is a very useful accessory and would make a thoughtful gift.
