A Brief History of Our Signature Earl’s Grey Tea

The Silvertree Earl’s Grey Tea begins its journey to your cup from the tea estates occupying the central province’s western slopes. The tea estates are perched at a cloud gracing height of 3000 feet and the leaves are handpicked before arriving in our processing factories where it is blended with Bergamot oil which gives the tea its exquisite flavour.

Deep red and clear to the naked eye, the Silver Tree Earl’s Gray has an irresistible aroma as well as citrusy undertones which highlight its unmistakable texture. Named after a 19th century British Prime Minister named Earl Grey, it was a nobleman from China who first presented the speciality tea to the English dignitary.

As one of the globe’s most popular black tea varieties, Earl’s Grey tea can be enjoyed both hot and cold with a splash of lemon, cream or sugar.
