As soon as I saw the cornflower petals in the ingredients, I thought of Twinings “Lady Grey”, and was very excited. When I opened the tin, the fresh bergamot, and other elements ensured a tasty liquor. This is definitely one of the memorable Earl Greys which I have tasted.
108 Tasting Notes
This tea is pretty well rounded for a CONCENTRATE. The one good thing of concentrated beverages is that it may be prepared as strong, or as weak to one’s taste. However, it lacks the freshness of the tea leaves.
My closest friend since childhood is Punjabi, and whenever I visit, I am treated to wonderful, homemade Chai tea. Although this tea is not the same as the homemade version I am used to, I found it to be quite delightful in the Autumn.
This is a great breakfast tea in my opinion, and is very brisk and malty. There is a definite presence of an Assam tea (Not one of the highest grades). I prefer Twinings “Finest Assam 2nd Flush” tea, which contains a much higher grade of teas, and a better flavor.
The aroma of the un-brewed tea leaves is sweet, and inviting, but the liquor is very light. It’s not the best Bai Mu Dan I’ve tried. However, I did notice the great floral notes that were in this tea more than others.
This tea tastes like the typical English Breakfast: Brisk, Bold, and slightly malty. Longer steeps of this tea (upwards of 3 minutes) turn it bitter.
I was quite surprised with this one. I received this tea as a gift (not for a birthday, or other special occasion, but because my family knows my deep appreciation for tea). I usually do not like Lipton, and try to stay away from it. As for this tea, I had to try it, and was astonished by its malty flavor. However, this tea contained MANY stems on a stem-to-leaf ratio. This is not close to the best tea I have had, but if I am offered Lipton again, this is the tea I will choose (as it is better than their other teas).
The aroma of this Earl Grey is very different than others I have tried. However, the tea is pleasing, but a little strong for an Earl Grey. I recommend steeping for about three and a half minutes only.
Every time I go to Barnes & Nobles, this is the Earl Grey they serve me. I drink this tea slowly, to enjoy the nice flavor.
I have tried many Earl Greys, and this is one that should not be steeped for a full five minutes as recommended. The aroma is good, and the liquor is too. I am definitely buying more.
This is the first Earl Grey I ever tasted. The aroma of the tea is always pleasant. I enjoy this tea, but also like Twinings “Signature Earl Grey”.
I received this tea as a gift on Christmas, and was absolutely delighted with its wonderful fragrance. I could smell the delicate lavender, and the nice aroma of the bergamot. Neither flavor overpowered the other, and the liquor was very nice.
