Oh, Lady Grey, I hope you don’t taste as absolutely AWFUL as your spouse, the Earl Grey from Twinings. But, without further ado…
Meh, it isn’t great, but I could drink this if forced to.

I usually prefer to drink tea with milk (in my case, veggie milks like soy, rice, almond, etc), and this is one of the better teas I ever tasted with milk.
It tastes very soft and perfect ballanced with bergamot scent, softer than in Earl grey, and the fruit flavours of orange and lemon that gives a fresh touch.
I’m a huge fan of this tea. Never had the bags, but I’ve always got a tin of loose leaves on top of the fridge. It’s a perfect rainy day tea; the scents of orange and cornflower will pick you right up! One of the best-smelling teas.
Supposedly it’s impossible to oversteep Lady Grey. I usually try to leave it for at least three minutes to get the full flavour out. I drink it plain; it doesn’t need sugar and it’s herbal-tasting enough that milk doesn’t do it any favours.
