I love Lady Grey tea, and I love Twining’s best of all- it’s basically a lighter version of traditional Earl Grey. I’ve found this to be a very versatile tea- drinkable at any time of day.

“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’m in love with this tea. However, I never actually want to drink it, for whatever reason. It may be the fruity smell/taste (not a big fruit fan), and I love Earl Grey, so I gave it a try. It’s a good, sweet tea, with some Splenda. There’s still the hint of EG (bergamot?) in the back of the smell and taste, but the fruitiness comes to the front. Really enjoy it in the morning.
I had a bunch of tea bags floating around, so I decided to bring them to the training center today. I already found out we have a hot water tap on the floor of our training room. Woot!
This is REALLY strong on the bergamot. I am fond of Twining’s Earl Grey. It’s one of the bagged teas I drank a lot before I switched mostly to loose leaf. Maybe I just haven’t drunk it in a while, but this one is stronger than earl grey with the bergamot. It also tastes like there is some other citrus in it too… a touch of lime? The base is nice as well, not overly bitter. Altogether, a solid morning cup of tea. Something to enjoy while I’m sitting here waiting for the boring class to begin. I hate these kind of training classes.
And I think this particular bag was sent to me by Shelley_Lorraine, so thanks again! :-)
So today was a particularly dismal day, dark skies then pouring rain, and there’s that added sadness of having to write a paper. I figured I needed something to lift my moods up a bit, and after rummaging through my pantry I found this stashed into a corner, along with a tin of Earl Grey, behind the seasonings.
Since we’re out of milk (yes, how sad), I went with Lady as I only drink EG with milk.
Pretty reddish-brown coloring at the end of 3 minutes.
Smells nice, a little bit flowery.
Tastes lighter than Twinning’s EG, and with citrus flavors, very soothing.
A bit astringent, and it does get more so if you accidentally leave it in the pot for long.
I got around 5 steeps out of it, but it did start to get weak on the second steep.
