I bought a Twinings sampler. I found the earl Grey to be good with milk and little honey. when I finish my lips felt slightly oily but the taste was pleasant enough to let that pass

Quite good for a bagged tea. The UK import version is better, less bergamot, and more delicate. The US one is one of my favorite earl grays, beating out the extremely strong Rishi. A local importer has better tea, but for bagged tea in a morning when I don’t want to fuzt with a tea ball, it works quite well. The tastes is really good, not too strong. If you brew it for too long, it can take on a bitter taste.
This is my standard go-to bagged tea. Mostly because it’s the only Earl Grey I can buy at the grocery store in boxes of more than 24, but it’s a simple unoffensive tea. Nearly impossible to oversteep, so it’s great for those times when you’re a bit distracted and can’t baby your tea during the brewing process. The tea doesn’t stand on its own very well, but I prefer milk and sugar anyway.
A year ago I would have rated this a lot higher than I will today, partly because I hadn’t tasted many black teas back then, and more to the point because I hadn’t tasted the lovely Lady Grey back then .. To be fair though, I do find this to be a nice cup of tea, with or without milk & sugar – but I’ve decided not to replace it when the current box runs out ..
One other note is that I’ve found some non-flavoured tea drinkers (my parents in particular) complain about the strong floral aroma of the Earl .. They’ve even asked me to not make ‘that perfumed tea’ while on vacation together, which of course I did, but went outside to drink it ..
