The Met has partnered with Harney & Sons on this unique, art-inspired tin containing loose-leaf Earl Grey tea and displaying a detail from Strawberry Thief (design registered 1883, printed 1917–23) by William Morris (British, 1834–1896).

The inspiration for this kaleidoscopic cotton textile in the Museum's holdings was derived from the designer's country home, Kelmscott Manor, where a community of thieving thrushes would pluck the strawberries from his garden. Today, Strawberry Thief is one of Morris's most celebrated patterns.

Ingredients: Black tea, oolong tea, bergamot oil. Contains natural flavors.

 Details: Would the world still turn without Earl Grey Tea? Many would doubt it. Originally just for the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom: Charles Grey – Later it was spread throughout the kingdom, and then around the world. It is so popular that we offer eight versions of it.
 Dry Leaves: A mixture of black and brown leaves (from the Formosa Oolong).
 Liquor: The liquor is a clear brown, tending toward russet.
 Aroma: The lemony aroma of bergamot from Italy comes through clearly. In this version, the notes are not quite as strong as in the Supreme or Imperial version.
 Flavors: In the later decades of the British Empire, citrus flavors became synonymous with Earl Grey Tea. This tea is true to that heritage. It can be enjoyed on its own or with milk and sugar.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied, lightened by the addition of oolong tea.
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212ΒΊ
