50 Shades of Earl Grey
According to the Grey family, the tea was specially blended by a Chinese mandarin for Lord Grey, to suit the water at Howick Hall, the family seat in Northumberland, using bergamot in particular to offset the preponderance of lime in the local water. Lady Grey used it to entertain in London as a political hostess. Earl Grey was one time Prime Minister of England in the 1800’s, and had a colourful personal history, especially with the ladies.
Could he have been the inspiration for Fifty Shades?
