A Little Earl Grey History
Though the historical lore behind the development of Earl Grey Tea extends beyond logic, for anyone who is enamored with the distinct flavor of this iconic tea, stories have little influence over the delight experienced while sipping. That being said, if what folklore reveals is true, one's tea drinking moments may be even more memorable. It has to do with a Chinese scholar, his drowning son, a rescue, and a thank you gift to the second Earl Grey. Except the dates and destinations don't make total sense.
There was an actual (Charles) Earl Grey; in fact there were two. The second Earl Grey was the eldest son of the first one, and served as Prime Minister from 1830 to 1834. His claim to fame not only revolves around the development of Earl Grey Tea (reference the drowning Chinese son, and the gift to the Earl), but during his tenure as PM (1833), slavery was abolished in the British Empire.
