Very fragrant and refreshing, but slightly too weak for those who may enjoy a stronger black tea. Not as good with milk as other black teas, but the citrus flavours are wonderful plain, or with honey.

“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.”

I tried this on the recommendation of a friend who mentioned that she drank Lady Grey often while studying abroad in England. Since I’d had good luck with Twinings before, I picked up a box of this while at the grocery store yesterday.
At first sip, I was very pleasantly surprised by how much stronger the citrus tang in tea tea is. There is also a delicate sweetness to it. I can see myself drinking this throughout the rest of the summer as a pleasant morning treat.
A decent Earl Grey, but the bergamot flavoring seems a bit artificial, and a little bit heavy handed, and that’s what stops me from giving it higher marks. Its a good tea when faced with a tea box at a restaurant that stocks a Twinings sampler (which is often where I’ve had it).
