There seems to be a lot of hate for this tea, but I’m not sure why?

I happen to find it a fairly decent Earl Grey compared to Twinnings (cardboard-tasting) or Second Cup (too much orange) or Stash (licorice?! how’d that get in there??), yet not quite up to par with Numi’s aged Earl Grey. Still, if I’m craving a London Fog I keep a stash of these teabags in my purse and head down to the local cafe to order an extra hot vanilla steamer. Then, I just add my own teabag. Easy-peasy-bergamot-squeasy.

I find that on it’s own it can be rather overpowering with bergamot. However, steep this baby in extra hot milk and it really holds its own. There’s nothing more disappointing than ordering a London Fog only to be underwhelmed by the Earl Grey. Me, I’ve solved that problem.

I love that you know the secret to the cheap london fog (and that you’re sharing it!). These bags of earl grey are much better than the new loose leaf ones, aren’t they!

Ali, working as a barista had it’s perks, including learning all the tricks. I’m glad to share! The new loose leaf ones don’t steep nearly strong enough, it makes me sad…

I used to be a barista too :-) at least you can still find the old bags at grocery stores!

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
