I haven’t actually had many Earl Grey blends – only two, I think – so I may not be the greatest critic. Maybe I just don’t like the blend.

This tea is oily; I don’t know how else to describe it. The bergamot flavor is definitely present; it’s a little aggressive, even, when I sniff the dry bag. All I can smell is bergamot, with the intensity of one of those body sprays marketed at preteens. I think that the oiliness and the overpowering scent might both stem from an overabundance of oil added to the leaves? (Once again, I confess that I have little experience with Earl Grey.)

I don’t like this one. I tried a bag from the dining hall at my school, but I won’t be taking another. Each sip leaves me feeling as though grease is coating my mouth and throat, and that’s just unpleasant.

Had it in a sampler pack, disliked it so much that I’m throwing the other bag in my giveaway pile.

I’ve only ever had this blend at a coffeehouse (Starbucks or Borders) and it almost always ends up tasting way too bitter for my liking. It’s a little too heavy on the bergamot and it seems like the average tea bag contains more tea than you would typically use for an average cup of tea; it’s probably the right amount of tea for an entire pot. A very strong, strong blend.

It’s like drinking citrus dish soap.

Eh, it’s quite a non-spectacular tea. Added a spoonful of cane sugar.

I thought I didn’t like Earl Grey, until I tried this particular brand about a year ago. Turns out, I DO like it! Since then, I’ve discovered that this is not my favorite version of Earl Grey, but it’s pretty good. It’s VERY aromatic, the bergamot smell is strooooong in this one. Which I like, I just kinda wish it had more flavor to match that.

I don’t know what it is about Tazo, but I love their black teas. I’ve tried very hard to prefer fancier loose leaf varieties, but this remains my favourite earl grey. I absolutely love the perfumed note that this has, almost a lavender flavour. It’s delicious and unexpected and perfect. My search continues for an equally tasty loose leaf earl grey, but for now I’m sticking with Tazo.

I love the flavor of a good cup of Earl Grey tea. I recently brewed a cup of this particular brand using one of the filter bags. It was not bad, but it did not meet expectations of a clean finish. I will try changing the brew time slightly and water temp to see if I am thoroughly happy. I will also brew a pot of tea with a freshly warmed pot, etc., to see if the proper technique improves the taste.
Glad I joined this group for tea lovers!

Not bad. I mean, it’s Tazo.

But it’s still a decent Earl Grey that’s cheap enough to keep around as a staple.
