Twinings intros three new Earl Grey varieties


NEW YORK — Twinings North America has added to its line of Earl Grey teas with the introduction of three new varieties announced Thursday. The company introduced Earl Grey Extra Bold, Earl Grey Lavender and Earl Grey Jasmine varieties to the line.

"As the originators of Earl Grey tea, I believe it is our mission to provide innovative and delicious takes on the classic blend," 10th-generation twining Stephen Twining, said. "Lavender and jasmine compliment the bold flavor of bergamot, which is the key note in Earl Grey. Extra Bold is perfect for Earl Grey lovers who crave an intensified, more vibrant taste. We know these new blends will resonate with a new generation of tea drinkers.”

Richard Twining first blended Twinings’s Classic Earl Grey in 1831, when Prime Minister Charles Grey asked him to replicate a tea he’d been given by a Chinese mandarin. The blend was named after the prime minister, and today’s boxes are signed by the latest descendent of Charles Grey.
