Too fruity for me. I am a huge earl grey fan but this one just didn’t do it for me. Tried it once and I won’t be buying this one anytime soon.

When he wasn’t in China discovering secret tea recipes, Britain’s second Earl Grey lived at Howick Hall in England, just like his ancestors had done since 1319. And also like his ancestors, he was a keen gardener and outdoorsman. This tea would no doubt have suited him, with the characteristic black tea and bergamot highlighted by strawberries, raspberries and essence of black currant.

This one has been on my “Tea’s to try” list for a loooonnnggg time now (over 2 years!) and it was just yesterday that I finally got around to trying it. I had this in a to-go cup while I was out shopping. The earl grey base definitely does come through however most of the taste came from the strawberries which gave the tea a fruity and sour note. The strawberry is definitely toned down in this tea compared to other strawberry teas such as Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait and Sweet Strawberry. I definitely enjoyed this tea and would drink it again however it’s not one I would rush out to buy. I would recommend trying it for yourself too.
This tea used to be one of my top three favourites, and as much as I still love it I hardly find myself drinking it anymore.
I love Earl Grey flavour, but I find it can be kind of dull occasionally. That’s why I love this tea, because it adds a fruity note to it that is unexpected and very refreshing. Like Kusmi’s Prince Vladimir, I find myself drinking this in the morning most often.
And is it just me or do certain teas bring nostalgia? This is one of them for me. Whenever I smell or taste it, I feel like I’m transported back two years ago when I used to drink this tea all the time. It’s a weird feeling.
Again, like Cream of Earl Grey, this seems to be a basic for every tea cupboard. However you don’t need to have Earl’s Garden and Cream of Earl Grey, I would just pick one or the other since they are so similar. This tea smells more of a strawberry Earl Grey then it actually taste. The smell is delicious, but I wish it tasted more like it smells. All in all, it is decent and I would also keep this one in my cupboard as a staple. Nothing to scream about though.
I love this, and have to have it with cream and sugar. The Bergamot is heady, but not too much so, and it’s nicely balanced out with sweet berries. It’s a fruity treat of a tea.
This might actually work very well as a bubble tea. Maybe I should get some tapioca balls…
The only thing I dislike about it is how it lists “artificial flavor” in its ingredients. Arrrgh, David’s Tea!
Anyway, I imagine a fairytale princess might like this very much with her strawberry scones while sitting in her rose garden and hanging out with her rabbit pals.
Let’s just put it this way, it wasn’t the best way to bring this summer’s tea special to a close. This is just my opinion, but I’m really not crazy about Earl grey tea in general; but I could imagine, that for those of you who are, this tea is right up your alley.
It has that classic earl grey flavor with the slightest bit of a fruity and floral flavor along with it. It’s really minimally fruity because the earl grey flavor is overpowering. It’s also a bit astringent.
I’m sure there are some people out there who will love this blend, but I’m not one of them!
