I really love this tea as a simple morning pick me up. I steep is for longer than the direction advise since I noticed that the listed times didn’t really impart enough flavor.

Apparently Twinings has changed its Earl Grey blend in the last few years. I’m inclined to agree, as some of the older reviews complain about the absence of bergamot notes. The bergamot is the overwhelming flavour in the new blend, whereas the black tea is quite weak. This makes for a useful to-go bagged tea, as it takes much longer for the black tea to noticeably over-steep and produce a bitter flavour— on rushed mornings I can throw together a travel mug right before stepping out the door, without having to worry about removing the bag in-transit.
The bottom line: a convenient, easy to make, but weak Earl Grey.
Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.
Can you tell I come from a family of Star Trek fans? We always had this on had growing up and I drank it every day through college. While it is no longer my favorite Earl Grey I do still keep some on hand for when I don’t feel like dragging out my tea pot or I toss some in my travel bag for when I just can’t get good tea where I’m at [most hotels serve truly appalling tea].
It’s probably the most common Earl Grey tea to see in the supermarkets and such, but man does it have an addicting flavor! It was my first venture into Earl Grey and it did not disappoint. I was sort of skeptical about British tea before (more of an Asian tea purist) but Twinings was a wonderful first time for me. Nowadays, it’s a staple part of my casual drinking habits.
I haven’t really tried a wide variety of Earl Grey so far, but compared to the ones I actually did try, this one was definitely the most flavorful.
A good, cheap tea that is very nice at any time of day. The black tea is not very rich, but has a light taste and aroma that blends well with the bergamot flavor. I love Twinings bagged tea because you can steep it quickly and have a nice light tea, or steep it long and have a deep flavorful tea; you cant really mess it up!
This is absolutely my favourite Earl Grey. I only drink this tea with a slice of lemon, so the slight citrus taste in this doesn’t bother me at all. I find the Twinnings has done the absolute best job at blending all the flavours of Earl Grey into the smoothest, loveliest tea that you can enjoy at pretty much any time of day. I especially love this tea at night just before bed while wrapped up in the blankets. There’s a reason this tea is a classic.
