I has been awhile since I’ve had an Earl Grey and I have been missing out. I was a bit worried after reading the ingredients where it mentioned “essence of jasmine.” Thankfully, the jasmine isn’t noticeable in either the scent or taste. I was a bit apprehensive about this tea since it was in a bag, but it was a whole leaf bag which I’ve don’t recall having tried before. The tea is very smooth with the black tea holding its own against the bergamot. The flavoring does not make it taste like perfume and is not artificial. I tried it plain which is definitely good and drinkable but I decided to make a London Fog latte by adding a bit of vanilla, sugar, and milk. Yum! I think this is a great Earl Grey. Although I don’t use bagged teas that often, it is nice to have the convenience every once in awhile.

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
