Origin: House Blend
One year the Earl Grey decided to surprise his children on Christmas by dressing as Father Christmas. Though it was a paper-thin disguise, the warm memories of that Christmas Day were forever with the Earl. He blended his bergamot black tea with mulling spices to remember that special day even as his children grew into adults, and thus the Earl Claus was born.
