  1. Earl Grey tea was created for the then Earl Grey of Howick Hall nr Alnwick, Northumberland, UK which is a couple of miles from our business base.
    What folk often don’t tell you is that it was invented ‘cos the water there is just awful for tea making – unlike most of Alnwick’s district, which has lovely soft water.
    “Earl Grey tea – masks foul-tasting water” probably wouldn’t have been the best marketing pitch… Still, bet they regret not trademarking it.
