From Teavana

Smooth infusion with bergamot overtones

Famously highbrow and high grown, our Earl Grey is a top-of-the-tier timeless classic. Aromatic bergamot adds a refined tart citrus taste to this dark, full-lead tea with prized tiny silver tips.

Use 1-1.5 tsp of tea per water. Heat water to 195-205 degrees (90-96 degrees Celsius) and steep for 2-3 minutes.

Ingredients: Black tea, artificial flavoring

This is an ok tea. It has an overpowering perfume scent and when i looked it up i found out that the Bergamot is artificial. I think that tea should always remain 100% natural and for that reason I am not a fan of this Earl Grey. The taste isn’t bad by any means but you can find all natural Earl Grey for the same price.

The flavor was excellent, the bergamot and black tea is present and with a little sugar or not, I taste the tea and is excellent, some days I prefer this tea classic than the earl grey creme of teavana.

I love Earl Grey tea. I really like this tea from Teavava.com. I will order more when it’s time. This is a good right before bed tea for me. Very relaxing.
1 1/2 to 2 tsp per 8oz of water.

I don’t know how because this is not the greatest Earl Grey but this is my daily drinker. I have purchased a few pounds over the last year since Teavana opened in Honolulu.

As EG’s go it’s pretty above average but not the cream of the crop (no pun intended).

The bergamot is just at that right amount and for a Teavana blend surprisingly no-frills. No weird fillers or chunks of mystery, just good quality tea. I equate this to your favorite comfort food at a major chain, so good you’ll eat it every time but it is not quite as good as MeMa’s

The dry leaves smell absolutely incredible, however, following the Teavana steeping suggestions leaves a pretty mild flavor, I prefer something stronger. Next cup, I think I’ll add a bit more than 1 tsp of tea and steep for 3:30 or longer.

Certainly not the best Earl Grey I’ve had, but it is the only Earl Grey that I have. I do find the teavana brewing suggestions to not make any sort of drinkable cup, and brew with my usual earl Grey timings and temps, boiling for four minutes, and it almost tastes like a normal EG cup

Bland. Conventional. Pedestrian. A first-class earl grey should be an important staple that every good large tea company should strive for. Teavana with their premium prices and the self-important feel that their brand portrays falls flat here. This is a tea that is a slight step above your average teabag earl grey, but far from the better loose leaf earl greys out there. The flavors lack punch. There is no vibrancy. It’s drinkable, yet dull. Teavana should do better, and you the consumer can do better. Move along.

This earl grey doesn’t make me want to jump up and down with excitement, but it’s classic and smooth — and my go to for just having a bit of black tea in the morning or afternoon. I could drink bucketsful, which means I’m not savoring every sip, but just enjoying the overall flavor.
