A pretty mild Earl Grey-type tea. It is pleasant, but not my favorite. I appreciate the prominent bergamot and lavender-ish flavor, but the overall blend doesn’t have the bite that I expect from an Earl Grey.

“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.”

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).
I’m an Earl Grey fanatic and I found this in my cupboard when I had ran out (it was in one of those variety packs) so I decided to try it out. It actually surprised me at how much I liked it! It’s like a less harsh Earl Grey with prominent tones of citrus/lemon. Even if it’s lighter, it’s definitely not ‘weaker’. Steep it for 4-5 minutes and it’s perfect. So nice and refreshing for breakfast with a splash of milk.
Glad I found the Lady Grey. Like it better than the stronger Earl Grey, and love the light citrus. I’m terrible about time and temperature, but this tea seems to be good even when the cup has gone cold or I left the bag in too long. It doesn’t seem to get as bitter as the “Earl”. I also like the decaf version of this when I can find it.
