Lady Grey is a proprietary branded tea variety and registered trademark of Twinings. Lady Grey is the pair-tea of Earl Grey and includes everything that is contained within Earl Grey tea along with Seville orange, lemon, bergamot and petals of cornflowers.
At the time when Lady Grey tea was first made it was believed the addition of fruits would counteract improper impulses that tea was widely believed to have upon the female temperament.
