Home of the Earl Grey Tea

Howick Hall, Northumberland

Der Garten ist ein Geheimtip, das Bathing House als Ferienhaus auch ;-). Die meisten fahren eh vorbei und gehen in Alnwick Castle auf die Suche nach Harry Potter.

Howick is also the home of Earl Grey tea! The tea was specially blended by a Chinese mandarin for Charles, 2nd Earl Grey. It was created to suit the water from the well at Howick. Using bergamot in particular to offset the taste of the lime in it. Lady Grey used it in London when entertaining as a political hostess. As a result it proved so popular that she was asked if it could be sold to others. Consequently this is how Twinings came to market it and it is now sold worldwide. Sadly the Greys, being unbusinesslike, failed to register the trade mark. As a result they have never received a penny in royalties.
