The legendary elegance of the English Lords can be recognized in this pairing of black tea and Bergamot, whose origin dates back to the 18th century. To overcome the infamous taste of water, Count Grey's Chinese servant had the idea of adding slices of Bergamot to the black tea. The count and his family were captivated by this unique recipe. Later becoming British Prime Minister in 1830, he helped make this recipe famous.
