Lady Grey tea is a trademarked variation on Earl Grey tea. Like Earl Grey, it is a black tea flavoured with bergamot essential oil.

Lady Grey tea is a modern invention, created by Twinings in the early 1990s to appeal to the Nordic market, which found Earl Grey tea too strong in flavour.[1] The name is trademarked to Twinings.[2] Lady Grey differs from Earl Grey in that it contains additional lemon peel and orange peel. It first went on sale in Norway in 1994 and in Britain in 1996.[1]

The Twinings blend contains black tea, orange peel, lemon peel, and citrus flavouring (bergamot).
