I like this tea, but it is certainly not my favorite Earl Grey. The black tea in it is quite solid, but it feels bland next to other brands.

I love tea, and hot black tea is my daily necessity. I have tried so many different types of black teas for my mornings, English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, bagged, loose, those-triangle-baggies, you name it, and Bigelow’s Earl Grey is one of my favorites.

I know some purists upturn their noses at bags, but I am a complete zombie in the morning and rely on my tea to keep me alive, and this no-fuss bag is how I accomplish just that.

since you like earl grey i would NOT recommend the earl grey white by teavana…i cant drink black tea because of all the caffeine so i thought id try the white, and the taste is just TERRIBLE. so…fyi ;)

Yes, you are so right! Their Earl Grey White is just awful. Shame, because it smells so nice and my husband so thoughtfully bought me quite a bit of it.

Thanks! It’s my first and only blog kinda thing, so it’s a hot mess right now. Not sure what I want to do with it.

I received this as a sample in another purchase, as this is not the type of tea I normally drink. It was quite underwhelming and I nearly spit it out. It did not mix with my palette at all.

Bio

I have a huge affection for malty, Chinese reds with rich, sweet flavors that soothe the throat and calm my nerves.

Yezi Tea is my favorite online vendor. Joy’s Teaspoon, Teavivre, and JusTea are also all-around-excellent.

I occasionally enjoy hot dragon well, but do not often drink green teas. I do enjoy mint, rose, lychee and chamomile, however. Rooibos is quite off-putting to my taste buds, and I am very wary of spray flavors, but not above trying them.

Other than tea I enjoy dabbling in watercolor, my cats and dogs, the occasional rescue animal, fantasy mmos and turn-based rpgs, and arm-chair linguistics.
