KIMICHA Trivia: do you know what tea is named after a British prime minister?

Yes Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey was a British Prime Minister in the 1830s. He had received a tea flavoured with bergamot oil as a gift. It is said that one of Lord Grey's men had saved a Chinese mandarin son from drowning so he presented this gift to the British Prime Minister in 1803.
