As the latest bearer of one of the most historic and respected titles in Britain, Richard Fleming George Charles Grey, the Sixth Earl Grey, together with his wife the Countess Grey, have put the family’s heritage and their passion for British design into a new range of home wares developed in collaboration with Candlelight Products Ltd.
Celebrating the finest in classic British style, the range includes everything from tea cups and saucers to tea pots, cake stands, wall art and many more items.
With a family line that includes some of London’s most stylish socialite entertainers ever; it is no surprise that the current Earl Grey and Countess Grey know how to lay the perfect table with the very best in elegant home wares and tableware.
The title Earl Grey is famously associated with the traditional art of afternoon tea because of the unique connection to one of the country’s favourite blends of tea, the unique and exotic blend, Earl Grey, flavoured with fragrant Bergamot flowers.
The name of the world-renowned tea derives from a gift that the 2nd Earl Grey, Charles Grey received when he was Prime Minister in 1834, after the son of a wealthy Chinese Mandarin was saved from drowning by a member of a British trade delegation. As a token of his thanks, the Mandarin sent the Earl some tea flavoured with Bergamot. Before long, the Earl Grey’s uniquely fragrant and exotic tea was the toast of London society and the current Earl Grey is still dedicated to the art of taking tea made famous by his ancestors.
The epitome of classic British elegance and sophistication, the Earl Grey range includes everything you could need for a perfect afternoon tea and more, in the elegant and luxurious style that the Earl enjoys his at home!
“For a really good Afternoon Tea, I’m adamant that the china must be at least as delightful as the cakes! The home wares in the Earl Grey range are exactly the sort of items we use at home when entertaining or simply indulging ourselves!” comments Richard Grey, the Sixth Earl Grey.
