From T2

Earl Grey gets a French twist which is oh-so-fruity. A medium-bodied black tea base with pretty petals and slivers of fruit that play with classic bergamot in an inspiring, bold and refined infusion. With hints of peaches, apricots and zesty citrus, a field of sunflowers, rose, cornflower and hibiscus perform a delicious dance. Classy with a touch of french briskness, this is full of good taste.

This has pretty much broken the record for being used up in my cupboard. Looking at.other reviews, there is a really mixed bag and some people are quite negative in their thoughts. But I think this is among the Earl Grey purists only. I haven’t come across anyone who dislikes this tea, and I’ve given it to at least half a dozen people.

Floral and peachy overtones guide you into this tea and leave you with a distinctly peachy after taste. This is a more fragrant and more fruity version of the standard Earl Grey and could easily be described as a step up if you want more of a similar type of flavour. Alternatively you may like this if you’re not a fan of Earl of Grey but are a fan of peach as it strongly resonates in this tea far more than any of the familiar Earl Grey tones.

I found this tea very off-putting as the smell is extremely overpowering and although I like peaches it turns out I don’t like peach flavoured tea – the smell is overpowering and the taste is even more so leaving a very strong after-taste.

If you’re more English Breakfast and less Earl Grey then I’d steer clear of this tea. Vice versa than this is the one for you.

I just love this tea, it is fragrant and refreshing hot or iced. Not too heavy on the bergamot or on any one flavour. Iced it goes well with some peach slices floating in it!

A traditional tea for those addicts amongst us that need that “taste of British tea”, but with a slightly sweet, floral taste to it as well. Seems to need less sugar than normal to bring the flavour out, and goes well with a small amount of milk.

Definitely a favourite.

Black tea flavoured with peach, bergamont, sunflowers, & rose-petals. Quite floral, with only a hint of bergamont – the Earl Grey for people who don’t like Earl Grey, perhaps? I like to have it in the afternoon with something decadent like a piece of lemon meringue pie.

I totally agree that it is the earl grey for those that aren’t earl grey fans. The bergamot is so minimal that it doesn’t overpower the delicate floral tones in the tea. It keeps your palette dancing well after sipping

I found this while I was in Australia and I have not been able to find anything close at home in New Zealand. I love the equal balance between black tea and the fruity/flowery infusion.

Tried with milk and sugar tonight and still getting that soapy taste. Do I just have a bad batch!?

Delicious twist on the classic Earl Grey. A nice peachy aroma and aftertaste, strong enough to be noticeable but not overpowering, and not too sweet.

This tea is infact one of my favourites from T2. Unlike some sickly sweet tea’s which you may get over quite quickly, this tea keeps you coming back for more
