Earl Grey Imperial is a blend of fine black teas, rich in natural Bergamot from Italy. What makes it different than the Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme and the other Earl Grey blends is the stronger body and stronger taste of lemony bergamot (as the British like it). Earl Grey Imperial was created as a part of the distinguished Harney & Sons Collection of historical English blends especially for the Historic Royal Palaces of England.
This tea was in the original five teas that made up the Harney & Sons Historic Royal Palace tea line. The tea is filled in a beautiful tin that is the colour of the sapphires found in the Tower of London's Crown Jewels.

About the Historic Royal Palaces Collection
Harney & Sons Fine Teas were invited by the Historic Royal Palaces of England (A non-profit organization that helps explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped the society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.) to create a notable and exquisite collection of English tea blends. Each unique tea blend pays homage to tea's imperial history and roots.
