Ohh this is a nice earl grey, I really love the smell of lavender though in all honestly I don’t get much of the taste (IDK WHAT DOES LAVENDER TASTE LIKE ANYWAY?), could be because I added milk though. BUT ANYWAY it is quite delicious!

I got a Revolution sampler set and I’ve been saving this particular tea for just the right moment. Today I find myself tired and needing a kick of caffeine and also strangely anxious. Earl Grey + Lavender to the rescue! I love the effect of the scent of lavender on my nervous system, I’m hoping that works in tea as well.
This tea smells amazing right out of the box. Yum! I’m already wishing I had more than one bag. When steeped the tea smells more of earl grey than lavender. I only see one little purple flower through the mesh – hopefully there are more inside the bag!
MMMM… this tastes amazing. It’s a little hot, but I’m sipping it anyway. The earl grey is mild and I can taste the subtle floral of the lavender. I’m glad this is a subtle tea, I don’t feel like getting smacked across the face with flavor this morning.
I have 10 more delicious minutes to enjoy this tea and steepster before my students come in. It’s crazy hair day at school today and this first grade teacher has cotton-candy colored hair to celebrate! Oh goodness, they just peeked in the window and saw my crazy hair. So much for a peaceful tea time, hahaha, now they are all crowding around to look.
This tea has a definite calming effect. I don’t know if it’s the slight smell of lavender affecting me or if it’s the brew, but I’ll take it. This is the first Revolution tea where I felt that I would be making a purchase in the future. I’m a big fan of this wonderful tea! It was the perfect first cuppa for me today.
Had it after dinner at a restaurant, I was in doubt about it but it was nice, tried it with one sugar. Had this strong taste from the 2 black varieties that is made of & a barely but recognizable woody taste from the oolong, never crossed my mind it paired so well. The taste from the lavender & bergamot are quite nice. I want to try it again, it reminded me of the Blue Earl Grey by Tealosophy.
I love this tea! it’s wonderful In fact my hubby loved it so much but he can’t stand all my other teas that i shared with him. though i like mine straight with no sugar my hubby enjoys it with a little bit of sugar in the raw in his tea. as long as i can find this tea it will be in my house
if you really like this tea if u can find an earl gray that is decaf. which i used Earl Grey Decaf Twinings open the bag and put a few lavender buds not the same but wow i still working on how to make it decaf so it’ can be my evening comfort tea nom nom
Amazing tea! I could drink this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great with milk, very comforting, almost nutty lavender-bergamot smell when prepared well, and Revolution prepares teabags using muslin, so the teabags don’t interfere with the taste. There is occasionally some variation between boxes where either the lavender or bergamot smell can be too strong, but overall a favorite.
This is one of my favorite teas. The tea base is high quality, a dry and astringent flavor, perhaps from the darjeeling and shui xian combination, and a light roasted flavor from the shui xian as well. The lavender doesn’t dominate but is noticeable, and the earl is just “grey” enough.
This was my first ever Earl Grey Lavender experience. I loved it, but quickly moved up to a lose tea. Great for those who want to try out Earl Grey with Lavender. If I could get it locally, I’d buy a box to keep on hand for if I travel… As Earl Grey – especially with Lavender now – is my all time favorite tea of teas.
