Made from fine Chinese teas with a large portion of white tips (the most prized leaf of the plant) and blended with the finest oil of bergamot available. Incredibly aromatic and flavorful.

It’s time for a Touch of Grey
YUP! Earl Grey and a little Grateful Dead!

Continuing on with my Tea/Music Challenge (see the topic in the discussion forums)…

I have a very little bit of this left – maybe enough for a cups-worth after this one. I like this very much…still no artificial EG Tastes going on here…real, true, crisp, and concise! NICE!

Thank you to Meghann for this sample. The dry tea has got a wonderful typical Earl Grey scent and there were quite a few white tips visible in my sample. The brewed tea is a very good Earl Grey. The bergamot flavour stands out clearly. The quality of the black tea seems to be decent at the very least and perhaps better.

I would most certainly recommend giving this a taste for those who are in search of their perfect Earl Grey BFF.

A sample from Meghann M – thank you!!

Smelling the sample was wonderful – the aromatic qualties of the tea were amazing. The smell is powerful and strong.

However, the flavor profile is nowhere as strong as the smell. In taste, the bergamot is fairly mild. If you like your Earl Grey smooth and mellow, this may be your cup of tea. The tea base is mild and flavorful, and a lovely dark brown color when brewed.

However, I tend to prefer my bergamot a little stronger. So, not my cup of choice, but not a bad cup at all.

Tea Earl Grey, Hot.

This Earl Grey has a clearly bergamot flavor. The black tea base is tasty. The two together are pretty good. I do think I like my Earl Grey Creme’s better than plain old Earl. This was pretty good alone, held up to milk well also. Lupica’s is still my go to Earl Grey with Teavana’s Earl Grey Creme coming up a close second.

Ah- I love Earl Grey. Here the flavors are very crisp and clear.

The bergamot is smooth and citrus-y with very little floral notes. Not at all perfume-y. It finishes with a sweet yet tangy aftertaste. A wonderful Earl grey.

Overall it tastes like a fine cup of black tea, I feel left out of these reviews mostly because you highlight the wonderful bergamot flave which was abscent on mine :( Just an after taste of it which quickly fades. I like my bergamot natural & well balanced, I’ll keep brewing it & see what happens.

An excellent example of the form, Earl Grey White Tip is by far my favorite EG.

Yesterday I tried it gongfu cha style. The resulting brew had a strong bergamot flavor, more forward than the western style brew. I started at 30 seconds and increased it a bit each time, until about 2 minutes for the final, 5th infusion.

i don’t even like bergamot, but i can’t help but like this tea. the black tea base is superior quality. silky smooth mouthfeel and rich flavor. the bergamot oil is clearly high quality and natural. there’s nothing artificial about this taste, it ends clean in your mouth. i have to say, this is a mighty fine mug of tea.

I’m not usually a fan of scented or flavored teas and Earl Grey has never been high on my list. But this tea is perfect when I want to fill my face with aroma and flavor (and a little milk and sugar to boot). It’s so bold and tasty. Great alone or with some cookies on the side as an after dinner snack.
