This is like Earl Grey but with citrus. =) It’s good with milk, but you can taste the flavors better without milk. One of my new favorite teas. Definitely my favorite of the classic teas.

“A refreshing, light black tea with the distinctive citrus fruit flavor of bergamot to deliver an uplifting tea with vibrant aroma and zesty flavors of orange and lemon. Lady Grey Tea is a unique blend from Twinings…[with a] gentle citrus flavor that is both relaxing and refreshing. It is perfect in the morning with breakfast or for afternoon tea. Enjoy it with a little milk, or with sweetener, or to your liking.”

In a moment of desperation, I swiped a bag of my roommates tea. To be fair he’d offered, but I generally try not to get into my roommates food or beverage. I didn’t expect to enjoy this, I’d had limited experience with Twinings, but the name and description sounded promising. I was actually pretty blown away. I’m kind of a freak for most things Earl Grey, and the subtlety of this was a surprise but entirely pleasant. Smooth, mild, kinda rocks me.
Twinings tea is like an old friend. No matter how long you go without seeing each other, they’re always there, tested and true.
Lady Grey tastes, I think, like a more lemony Earl Grey. It has a delicious light flavour and it’s great any time. I do tend to drink it with milk and sugar even though I prefer my Earl Grey with lemon.
When I drink bagged teas though, I do tend to just leave the bag in until the tea is done, meaning occasionally the last bit is much too strong to drink, but I didn’t have that problem at all with this tea.
Good to the last drop!
The Earls ‘better half’ indeed, and oh my she’s as pretty as she tastes ..
I enjoy a Lady Grey any time of the day or night, with or without milk & sugar .. Even my non-tea drinking friends like it’s light floral notes, and I personally amp up the citrus by adding a few drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil to the tin = Yummy!
Ran out of Second Cup Holiday Tea (but then, it IS March…) so I’ve moved on to Twinings Lady Grey. Good stuff, but it’s way too delicate for the milk and sugar I put in it. Next time, lemon juice. (Note to self: acquire lemon.) Ordinarily I prefer stronger teas, but this is a lovely tea with a beautiful scent.
Note: This is a review for the bagged version.
I really wanted to try this tea because a good friend of mine, who hates bergamot and therefore cannot stand earl grey, said she liked this tea, and described it as a “lighter earl grey.” Light, yes, but definitely different from earl grey. The citrus note stands out more than, say, the lavender-like intensity from earl grey. I sometimes add milk to my earl grey but I think this Lady is best straight, though I will try it with a bit of milk on my next try.
Overall, it was a light tea, and though I prefer Earl Grey, it was a nice change. I saw the loose leaf before and they were quite pretty. I would like to try some, but it is not my favorite tea; I don’t see myself buying a whole tin.
