My first cup of Lady Grey. softer than the more manly Earl.

“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.”

This is my favorite tea, and I drink it constantly when I’m at home. I’ve only ever drunk the bagged, but I’m considering getting a tin of loose shipped over. As for the bagged: it’s just light, sweet and interesting. A lot of citrus and a great aroma. In my experience, it is nearly impossible to overbrew the bagged version with not-too-hot water. You can leave the bag in indefinitely without any bitterness.
This is one of my earliest tea tries. It’s a friendly flavor even tongues newer to the black tea world. I loved the lightness of it and that with the tea bags, I didn’t destroy the flavor too much if I forgot to take the bag out on time. When I started getting into loose leaf teas, I of course bought that variety but I’ve never been able to love it as much as the bags. I’m still trying to get that light citrus/flowery quality rather then the stronger black tea taste that seems to occur when I try using the leaf. If that just fails me, there is always the tea bag to go back to.
This one was nice, but I wasn’t overly impressed with it. I guess I just prefer the stronger flavor of the Earl Grey teas. I did the milk and sugar thing, but it was a bit too mild for my liking. Maybe I’ll give it another shot before I give up on it completely. I did get it in a sample package of Twinings teas, so I only have 4 bags left.
Indeed, very pleasant to drink. Everytime a winner especially when I serve it to the ladies…
Quite refreshing, a very harmonious balance of flavors. The color of the brew is very appealing.
Recommend to serve the tea leafs in a tall glass ( or glass tea pot) so one can whatch the dry leafs unfold and admire the colorful ingredients of the blend. Therefore you might want to go a bit lower with the water temperature (85 degrees Celcius). Also take it easy with the portioning…otherwise the tannins break through as you will not set the glass to your lips after exactly 3 minutes and whatever seconds…well, only a suggestion.
