From Tim Hortons

True to tradition, Tim Hortons Earl Grey Tea is a special tea blend infused with the distinctive flavour and aroma of the oil of Bergamot, a small, fragrant citrus fruit.

I had this one yesterday morning and haven’t been able to log it until now. It was ‘ok’ but nothing special, really. As for the black tea base it was a nice medium strength but the the Earl Grey-ness was a bit on the weak side.

It was a nice-hot-cup for a mellow morning of research and free wifi on the run but not a sturdy or memorable cuppa.

So I’m back in school, and finally have regular access to some sort of computer again. Albeit not mine, which is just not the same thing. Particularly since I can’t access my iTunes…

Still, back in school! I managed to snag a locker someone forfeited from last semester – whoop, you just feel like tourist in school until you get a locker. This is also mighty important when you’re Canadian and need a place to stash all your winter gear – heavy coats on top of books are not fun to cart around a uni campus. And I needed a place to put my tea so I wasn’t hauling bags of leaves around in my bag all the time! So yeah, I got a locker and gleefully stashed my coat in it and went to my second class.

Which was naturally interrupted by one of the school’s normally-rare fire alarms. So I spent most of that class outside with no coat, and getting my Chucks wet in the snow I would otherwise avoid. What can you do.

My school has installed these clean, cold water dispenser things by all the water fountains, so people can easily fill up water bottles! So cool! They don’t dispense hot water, unfortunately, so I still have to trek to a coffee shop/food establishment for that. Still, guess I could try out the shaken bottle of matcha method. People do do that with cold water, right?

Anyway, I ran through a couple of my teas today, but I got a little sick of tasting their flavour being ruined by being brewed in cardboard cups. (I need to remember to bring empty travel mugs that I can brew in!) So I threw up my hands and said, cheap bagged it is so that I don’t keep wasting my stuff. And I went to Timmie’s and got this.

Maybe my standards are low at the end of the day, maybe they added too much sugar (no, I know they did), but this isn’t that bad. I haven’t had a plain EG in forever – what should it taste like? This reminds me more of black licorice than anything citrus. The base could be stronger. It’s not good. But it’s pretty pleasant nevertheless. I could stand to have this again.

Yeah try the cold shaken matcha idea – you can always grab a coffee creamer from the food stand to make it into a latte of sorts.
Have a great year and uni and glad you got a locker! Sorry your chucks got wet though.

Canadian winters suck! and I’m in Toronto, which I think is the farthest south heh. Then again, I am a big baby and hate the cold. tea helps!! :)

I once got a London fog latte from Tim’s, presumably made from these teabags, and it was actually pretty good.

The past two days have crazy and I didn’t really have time to steep my own tea, so I have been devoted to Tim Hortin’s Earl Grey. No problem here, it my first love tea-wise, the drink that started my love of tea, so to have it’s comfort and aroma in my time of stress and busyness is just perfect. I love getting the large one because I can refil it later and it will taste just as awesome, a real deal.

Eh, kind of weak. Ordered this at Tim Hortons this morning before I saw they have their pumpkin spice latte and tea in haha. Oh well, I was craving EG this morning anyways, got this with 1 cream, 1 sugar, and it’s ok, just not the strongest. But then I’m used to A&D’s pow of flavor lol. It will do for my bergamot fix, as I made Laoshan Black in my mug for later this morning, sipdown at that! Anyways, this will do for now.

I tried this as a tea latte earlier since I couldn’t think of what to order, and Earl Grey is usually a safer way to go.

It was alright. It misses the liveliness that other Earl Greys have. Usually, the bergamot bursts like a ray of sunshine but here, it’s a little dull. I just simply left the tea bag in my cup since the milk was really overpowering the tea and I was hoping to achieve more flavour but alas, leaving it in did nothing.

Not horrible, but not memorable nor reorder- or purchase-worthy either.

Why? Why are you so bad? I want you to be good. No – I don’t care about good. I will settle for decent. Serviceable, even. Right now, you are barely potable. Every time.

I found this to be a rather BLAH tea when it comes to an Earl Grey. It lacked body and taste unless you add some sugar and milk. I don’t drink it at all anymore but when I did I found that adding sugar and milk (2&2) made it smell and some what taste like fruitloops.

This is my comfort cup of tea. I swing by Timmy’s to pick up some Earl Grey whenever I have long study sessions or am rushing to work, and it never fails to calm and energize me at the same time. Fair enough to those who say it’s nothing special; it’s not the best I’ve had, but it’s definitely a favourite, kind of like an old knit sweater or a frayed pair of jeans. Timmy’s Earl Grey makes for an excellent double-double if you buy it large (my dad was the one who pointed this out to me) and most definitely a latte. But be careful not to oversteep it! That being said, you can most certainly use the teabag to brew another cup. Bravo Timmy’s for this one!

I had the chance to try the tea today, as I work at Tim Hortons, finding that the rest of their teas are mediocre. I have tried just about all the teas there, and since trying many teas from Davids and Teaopia, I feel as if the ones at Tims are cheap and low quality.

None the less I tried this tea.
It’s smell was rather flat, it was not something that would bright up your face.
Strong smell of burnt black tea and licorice.
Taste? I found it tasted nothing like some fine quality Earl Greys I had before, it was just plain and boring, tasteless.

Shame on you Tims.

I found this version of Earl Grey dull & lacking flavour. Perhaps it was the way that it was made for me but I was surprised because I normally enjoy Earl Grey teas.
