This tea tastes vaguely like fruit loops to me, and it’s delightful. Definitely a lighter blend of it’s husband. But equally delightful.
“Drinking almost the end of this tin. I remember the days, not long ago, when I used to drink this on a daily basis. Okay, so it was a decently long time ago.” Read full tasting note

As I mentioned on my review of Twinings Peppermint tea (a very good purchase), I bought these two teas together on a “2fer” sale, not expecting much; I must say I am glad I got this box! I was actually intending to buy earl grey tea, so when I got home and read the label, I immediately thought: “What the heck is Lady Grey”
The ingredients are basically the same as Earl Grey, yet the taste is lighter and smoother. The ingredients list mentions additionalcitrus flavors listed after orange and lemon, but with further online research, I found that cornflower is an ingredient in this blend. I am assuming that cornflower isn’t listed in the ingredients as it’s probably there in negligible amounts. I think it smells like Earl Grey, an aroma that I adore. As I mentioned the taste is very light and smooth, which is not bad at all, I was just looking for something more robust, but I like this tea very much. It’s great with sugar and just earlier I made a very foamy tea latte with it. It was a really good way to enjoy the tea in different ways.
I’m a novice tea drinker who used to have to add loads of milk or sugar to anything but I love this one without anything in it in the mornings! I discovered it in one of the Twining’s variety boxes and now I buy it alone all the time.
Random discovery: I was drinking this when I was up late studying one night and eating Girl Scout Thin Mints at the same time and it was a great combo!
An absolutely lovely blend. The tea is perfectly dark to compliment the perfect amount of bergamot. Can be easily enjoyed prepared in a multitude of ways. Personally, I prefer stronger bergamot in my tea, if available, but this is so subtle yet distinctive, your attention is drawn to the flavor, just the same.
This is the second tea I ever tasted from Twinings. It seems like so long ago, and always brings back great memories whenever I drink some. It is not quite an Earl Grey, and has wonderful lemon and citrus notes. This is NOT a malty tea, nor is it brisk; it is very light, and should be enjoyed from noon until night.
