From Steepster

This full leaf Ceylon black tea was sourced from a single estate and hand blended with pure bergamot oil from Calabria, Italy. We love how the refined body of the black tea mingles perfectly with the intoxicating lemony aroma of bergamot; an affordable everyday luxury.

I tend to be a tea hoarder: the better the tea, the worse I feel using it up. This tea has just the right balance between being drinkable and being expendable. Drinking it also makes me feel productive, because the closer I get to the bottom of the tin, the closer I am to being able to repurchase my favorite Earl Grey: Mount Gray by Andrews & Dunham.

Over time, I’ve learned that this tea is best brewed a bit colder than most blacks – it tends to develop a bitter taste at higher temperatures.

Very good Earl Grey, not overpowering with bergamot. The tasting notes made me worry that I was actually getting a Lady Grey instead, but this tea isn’t it. It’s a very tasty Earl.

oh, this is GOOD! it doesn’t taste like the bergamot is somehow an artificial flavoring, which makes me happy. deep dark delightful tea underneath, holding up the floating lemony bergamot. just love this stuff. i’d love to try icing it as well, but alas, i used up my sample.

After five months of being a Steepster member, this Earl Grey tea remains one of my absolute favorites. Very strong with a hint of lemon. A luxurious aroma.

it’s always relieving to have a delish earl grey! the bergamot really comes through where you want it too. I have to stick with having this tea with milk and either sugar or honey depending. Regardless the delicious flavor comes through and I think is accentuated and accompanied by the milk.

Haven’t had Mr. G in years. Like many, had way too much inferior product that it shut me down. I then got into Yezi Tea and Yunnan Sourcing black teas and forgot all about Mr. G. I shared this generous sample with a work mate and we were both floored at how good it was. Well structured black tea with a precise amount of bergamot. I wish I could find this so when I offer my friends, with less sophisticated palates, a cup of tea they will accept Mr. G, as apposed to my “crazy” teas from China.


Agree. My friends don’t want any “crazy teas fr China”. They are happy with Kusmi


The amusing thing there is that by far the most of Kusmi’s tea comes from China. :)

Really nice cup of earl grey with solid bergamot notes and a warm savory finish. After telling one of my coworkers about it he mentioned his habit of brewing it with a rooibos tea … something I’ll have to try next!

This is my first proper cup of Earl Grey tea. I went straight from Lipton and Teavana to Yunnan blacks, Oolongs, etc. so I was very intrigued by the scent of real Earl Grey!! I also got a proper British style bone china teacup and saucer (bc all I had was Asian style tea ware) which I absolutely think is gorgeous and adds to the experience.
Origin: Sri Lanka
Dry Leaf: Black and twisted leaves with the scent of the Bergamot Orange oil
Method: 212F 1 tsp tea for 12 oz water steeped for 3 minutes
Wet Leaf: Cut with scents of the essential oil
Liquor: Smells of some light smoke and has a beautiful light orange color. Very clear.
Flavor: Light with touches of the Bergamot Orange oil that gives the tea a subtle citrus taste. This tea is meant to have milk and sugar if you like. I don’t ever add sugar but I added a splash of milk. How delicious when you do that bc this makes the citrus notes come to the forefront and blend into a creamy citrus tea. There is no astringency or bitterness in this tea so I am very pleased with my first experience with a true Earl Grey. Thank you Steepster!!!
