An acceptable Earl Grey tea. The flavour is fairly mild, even with a long steeping. Not as bergamot-y as some other Earl Grey variations, but it’s still a decent tea.

Fine black tea expertly blended with the citrus fruit flavor of bergamot, a citrus fruit.
To savour the full flavour of our teas, bring water to boil, and pour over the tea as soon as it reaches boiling. Over-boiling will cause oxygen to be reduced, making the tea taste “flat”. Brew 2-4 minutes or to desired taste.

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.
