This is my Holy Grail of Earl Grey tea. It stands head and shoulders above the rest, and it must be the tea base that separates it from the rest, as the other Earl Greys from Mariage Freres taste much simpler somehow. I am sure that it is more heavily flavored with Bergamot than the other EG’s as well, but that can’t be the only difference. Whenever I serve this tea to someone, they always say “What IS this tea?” It is unique and intense and wonderful in every way.

this is one EG I need to taste in the future. I am an EG lover and sometimes I hit my own hand just to remember NOT to buy again an EG…Until today my favourite Earl Grey is a Mariage Frères too the Earl Grey French Blue and even if I had promised myself not to rebuy it until I finish another EG (Mademoiselle of Theodor) I failed …100 g in my cupboard…I need to know it’s here, just in case…

As such an EG specialist, I am curious to hear what you think of this one! I chose it by smell at Mariage, it stood out as The One For Me, and happily it tasted just as it smells. Have a little sniff for yourself the next time you pass a Mariage :-)

I am impressed by this Earl Grey. It’s an heavy bergamot for sure, not the sweet kind, the floral one. The tea base is strong and malty.
I steeped my pot for almost 5 minutes and it may be too long as I get an astringency, tolerable but really there.
I’ll retry with both less leaf and a shorter steep but it is a really special EG, a morning one able to wake you up quickly.
This Earl grey is not the kind of EG I imagine Miss Marples would drink with her friends.
I know you’re strong Miss Marples…but I always imagine you very classical and fragile regarding tea.

Haha! Yes, I’ve always wondered what was in Miss Marples cup!

I’m sure it was an Earl Grey but maybe more an Earl Grey French Blue type :)
