The WORST Earl Grey I have EVER HAD bar NONE!!! I can’t even describe the heinous taste bud rape that occurred when I tried to drink this stuff OMG. It didn’t even taste like Earl Grey!
I gave the box away to someone I didn’t particularly like.

Totally reminded me of Fruit Loops, and apparently I’m not the only one who thought so. As unpleasant as that sounds, I actually quite enjoyed it. It’s a yummy tea to have when I’m craving black tea with a bit of milk and sugar, but not as good as I’d imagine Earl Grey should be. Less of a fake citrus flavour would be nice.
Meh.. that’s what I think of when this tea is mentioned. It really doesn’t do it for me. I love earl grey, it is one of my favorite teas, but the tazo one is just not the best earl grey I’ve had. I find with this the bag can only steep for a few seconds and needs to be pulled out before it becomes too bitter.
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.
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.
