Oral Hygiene
Black tea contains antioxidants called catechins. These antioxidants are extremely powerful and help to fight infections. By simply including some Earl Grey tea into your diet, you can help prevent oral infections and bacteria.
Anxiety
The bergamot found in Earl Grey tea is said to have a calming effect. A warm cup of tea is great for soothing any stressed nerves, but Earl Grey is specifically good for this! Alongside the bergamot, a small amount of caffeine is present in the tea. However, it is not enough to create a caffeine crash later in the day. Instead, the caffeine helps provide clarity and concentration rather than exacerbating jittery nerves.

Weight Loss

One of the most popular apparent effects of Earl Grey is weight loss. This is primarily due to the citrus extract found in the tea. Citrus fruit is believed by many to encourage weight loss and increase metabolism. This is because citrus helps to break down your food faster! Instead of drinking hot water and lemon, why not try a nice cup of Earl Grey tea.

Cold Relief
Bergamot is well known for improving blood circulation and reducing fevers. As an antibiotic, it fights viruses and bacteria. It is also an anti-congestive and is used in vaporisers to relieve congestion and respiratory problems, particularly during coughs and colds.

Heart Disease
Drinking black tea lowers blood triglyceride levels and helps to lower cholesterol when drunk over an extended period of time. Triglycerides are directly linked to heart problems, so reducing these is only ever beneficial.
If you’re looking to improve your health, and stay hydrated at the same time, why not introduce Earl Grey tea into your diet. Buy a box and keep it in the office, and use your Billi tap to make a mug in seconds!

Was Earl GREY a real person?
The Earl Grey blend, or “Earl Grey’s Mixture”, is assumed to be named after Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s and author of the Reform Bill of 1832. He reputedly received a gift, probably a diplomatic perquisite, of tea flavoured with bergamot oil.
