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.
Not to sound harsh but all Earl Greys taste the same… this one is no exception. HOWEVER, with the right amount of cream and sugar this tea really makes for a delightful afternoon tea (especially if it’s raining!). Don’t worry to much about over steeping, and again I do recommend experimenting with different amounts of cream and sugar.
Despite what everyone else says about this tea being “just okay”, I have to strongly disagree. For me this tea had a really lovely rich, round flavour. I got the loose leaf variety, dropped about a teaspoon and a 1/3 into the bottom of my Libré Tea infuser mug, and I just left it in there and drank straight out of it. I like my teas stronger so this wasn’t an issue. I have tried it with and without both milk and sugar and its just all around a really fantastic tea. Plus I love the fact that its organic.
I would give this tea a 96/100 and it had maximum steeping time in just below boiling water.
I have had many Mighty Leaf teas. I like them-quality tea bag, you can usually count on. I was at a local coffee shop, and they used this tea bag to make my London Fog. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Haven’t had a London Fog before, this will not be my last with this tea bag or with other Earl Greys. This concoction has made me start to like Earl Greys. (Not a big fan before)
Everyone on here that is saying all earl greys taste the same need to take a second look. In my humble opinion you have some pretty crappy earl greys on the market and some pretty good ones. Just because the tea is flavored in the same style as a competitor’s tea you can still get huge differences. With that being said this is one of the better earl greys ( although not the best ) on the market. This earl grey is more complex than many of the other earl greys I have tasted.
Specifically you can taste the tea and it isn’t overpowered by the bergamont flavoring, I like this aspect of this specific blend of Earl Grey. I don’t think the tea leaves are as cheap as many of the competitors version of Earl Grey.
