Really good if you don’t have time to steep a proper pot of tea or if you want an afternoon pick-me-up that won’t shoot caffeine through your veins like a hardy English Breakfast. It’s especially good with a splash of milk.

Flavors: Citrus, Honey

170 °F / 76 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Post breakfast while watching The Paradise. There is a nice scent of bergamot and other fruit. Perhaps grapefruit. The flavour is a bright citrus.

It would be good with cookies.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Cookie, Lemon, Orange

I like eating shortbread cookies with Lady Grey.

Lynxiebrat

Shortbread cookies are great with nearly any tea.

Lariel of Lórien

I like shortbread with Scottish Breakfast, and I guess Grey blends too.

Drank this tea this morning with a splash of grapefruit juice! I very much enjoy this tea. It’s such an easy cup to sip in the morning. Something comfortable and familiar about the tea base. It doesn’t make a bold cup but somehow that works with the lemon overtone. This tea will always be an easy choice for me.

Preparation: Bagged tea. Honey to sweeten. Splash of grapefruit juice. (confession: I left the bag in the cup and drank around it)

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Lemon, Tea

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 10 OZ / 295 ML

There are too many options for this tea on Steepster, so I picked this one to write a note under.

It’s an EG. It’s not the earliest greyiest of earl greys, but it is one. And I took a sip and made the “yuck” face. But now that I’ve adapted to the thought that I’m drinking an earl grey, it’s not bad. I mean, it’s caffeine. It’s warm. It’s citrusy. Yep, it’s tea.

Thanks to whomever sent this over. MissB? Sil? I am so confused about samples at this point…

OMGsrsly

Tea wasn’t doing it for me. Dumped half the cup and got coffee. Mmm, coffee. With chocolate in.

Sil

blech

OMGsrsly

:P Sometimes EG is nice. Just not this morning.

Equusfell

This is my preferred “can’t destroy this at a conference in a paper cup” teabag. It is just this side of generic, which is much more tolerable than whatever Tazo hibiscus crap or lipton they usually have at coffee hour.

OMGsrsly

Haha. True! But when I’m out and about, EG is my standard because I generally know I can expect floor polish and not just cardboard. When I’m at home, I’m super picky with my EGs. Paris by H&S, and the Grapefruit EG from Bayswater are my preferred home-teas. :)

Sil

gross

OMGsrsly

This just means I need to search out some more EG for you, Sil! :P

Sil

gross. i hate that you guys know i’ll try nearly anything lol

OMGsrsly

Hahaha. Sorry?

rosebudmelissa

I didn’t care for this one because I prefer more floral earl greys and am not a big fan of citrusy black teas. I much prefer Twining’s Earl Grey to their Lady Grey

OMGsrsly

Twinings EG = tea of my childhood. :) That and Red Rose and a plain peppermint, although I can’t do plain peppermint anymore.

rosebudmelissa

My mom usually kept peppermint tea and green tea around the house. I don’t think I’ve ever had a tea by Red Rose. I don’t think I’ve even heard of them before.

OMGsrsly

You’re, uhh, not missing much. :)

tigress_al

Haha when I was a kid, I thought Red Rose and peppermint was the only tea there was. They were the only tea that I had ever seen in our small town grocery store

Equusfell

Paris is good, never tried the grapefruit, but one of my favorite teabags was Twinnings Orange Blossom Earl Grey, so I feel like it would be compatible! I quite liked the Earl Grey Creme from Upton as well. I mean, I didn’t really love it, but found myself craving it, which is a weird relationship to have with a tea. I also found it was very popular with generally non-tea-drinking guests.

OMGsrsly

Yep. Sometimes only an EG will do. :)

My absolute favourite spin on Earl Grey tea. This tea smells so good, and the taste is even better! I love the citrusy hit this tea gives, and the flavour profile is so bold and satisfying to drink. I am always always excited to have this tea!

The flavour is pleasant, black tea and citrus, but it is too mild for my taste. I prefer Earl Grey

I’m in a horrible cycle with this tea. I drink it, I love it, and then as a few days pass I start to think I don’t like it and I avoid it until the mood strikes me. I blame my avoidance of Earl Grey—though the two are far from similar.

Impossible to ignore the similarity to Froot Loops, in a nice, not overpowering way. A buttery, lemony tea with maybe a hint of orange. Though I’ve yet to try it iced I feel it would really shine. Remarkably refreshing, this may be a summer favourite once the weather takes a turn.

Flavors: Butter, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest

How i got it: Bought it (Twinings’ Classics Collection Pack)

Experience: LG is the last tea left to try in the Twinings’ pack. Its smell is very unusual, like orange pancakes, or orange jam, with some hints of ginger and cinnamon. On the flavor side, it follows the line of the aroma: i can taste mainly orange with some cinnamon in the background. Not a bit acidic, this blend results in a enjoyable mix, though the base tea is almost imperceptible and the orange scent lacks some naturality. Aside from that, I’m surprised… this tea turned out better than I thought.

Would i buy it again?: Has some possibilities.
