From Stash Tea Company

A Stash Tea best seller and long-time customer favorite! Earl Grey is black tea scented with bergamot, an oil extracted from a pear-shaped Mediterranean citrus about the size of an orange. Earl Grey brews up a beautiful amber cup with a distinctive flavor and lightly fragrant aroma.
Earl Grey is a versatile tea, at its best in the afternoon or after dinner. Delicious and flavorful plain, it may also be served with sugar and milk. Plus, it makes a wonderful, refreshing iced tea.
The tea leaves in Earl Grey are usually a blend of Chinese black or Indian Darjeeling teas. Stash uses superior grades of Ceylon black tea from Sri Lanka and black teas from China for our Earl Grey. We strive for a distinctive tea flavor that is not overwhelmed by the pungent citrus, and we use only 100% pure bergamot oil, not a mixture.
Story has it that in 1830 Englishman Charles Earl Grey (the second Earl Grey, 1764-1845) was on a diplomatic mission to China, when a mandarin presented him with the recipe for making this distinctive tea. Now it is the most famous scented tea in the Western world.

So, this time round all I got was citrus and gross. It felt like I’d eaten a half way rotting orange. Thankfully I got the two bags in a trade so I don’t have to drink any more.

This is certainly not my favorite Earl Grey, the taste is just…off ever so slightly, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Tim Horton’s Earl Grey is still the best bagged one I’ve had! Though I’ll stick to my DAVIDsTEA Cream of Earl Grey! Mmmmm.

Edit: my rating is more for the latte I made. As just a bagged tea, my rating would probably be in the 70s. A decent not-too-strong Earl Grey, especially if you can pick it up on sale. (A good sale to me is .20/bag as long as the expiration is 6 months out).
Following advice here, used 2 bags brewed with 4, maybe 5 oz boiling water (that is, half way of my 10 oz mug) for 3 min. Filled my Breville Milk Cafe to froth minimum line of whole milk with half tsp agave syrup and a dash of vanilla extract (Costco brand). I ended up with more froth than I needed and may add more syrup another time. This is VERY lightly sweetened but suits my taste. The Breville makes more milk than I would need per single use but I like its function more than the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus. (I know I love my gadgets). I am lactose intolerant, or rather milk is intolerant of me since I quite like it. I am hesitant to try chai lattes and matcha lattes because I want to be sure I can make them perfectly given the price to pay drinking so much milk. I am definitely enjoying this attempt. Hey, just realized I can do this with loose leaf too!

I’ve been drinking this for a while, and I find that the bergamot is very noticable. It took a bit to get used to, but I find I like it now. I find it’s best with a longer steep time and a couple tablespoons of milk. It’s good :)

I haven’t been logging lately, due to doctor’s appointments, and vacation time. But now, it’s time to start again. I had this earl grey at a different beach than where I usually am. It was very nice, and definitely helped with the beauty of Cambria’s ocean. The bergamot essence was very nice, and I enjoyed the unique flavor of this earl grey. Though I would have preferred it to be full leaf tea. The next time I visit Cambria, I will drink this tea.

Opened up the foil packet, and the smell of the black tea and the bergamot kinda whacked me in the nose. Wow, is it strong!

Boiled water and milk and mixed with sugar. I allowed it to steep for the full five minutes in a large batch of liquid. The smell is wonderful and it colors the milky water like light chocolate milk.

The flavor is definitely strong – I am glad I listened to the other reviewers for this tea and I added milk and sugar. I can definitely taste the bergamot in this, and it adds a very interesting flavor to the black tea. Adding the milk really brought the citrus out, while at the same time gentling it ever so slightly.

While not my favorite taste per se, it is pleasant to drink hot.

It’s Earl Grey so I give them an E for effort on this black tea. The problem for me is the brew is too weak to enjoy (1.6g). The taste is pleasant enough. There just isn’t enough of it.
