I adore this. I couldn’t even fully explain why. Maybe it’s the brand association more than the tea itself, but this tea is my go-to whenever I’ve got the sads. The whole process of whipping up a cup is instantly comforting. Citrusy without being pucker-inducing, and much more delicate than a cup of Earl Grey. I’ll buy this tea forevermore.

Strong citrusy flavor with undertones of bergamot and black tea. If I had steeped it longer, I wonder if the lemon and orange peel flavor would have overwhelmed the tea. It is not really the taste of the fruits of lemon and orange, but of the peel – sharper, but not bitter or astringent. It is certainly not like the orange of a ceylon orange pekoe. I enjoy the taste of Lady Grey, but only when I am in the mood for this kind of strong citrus flavor.

Picked up a few of these to try from a box at a friend’s house. Personally I have never been that fond of Earl Grey tea but the idea of a lighter Lady Grey where the bergamot is softened with lemon and orange sounded like it was worth trying. Unforgettably this is only the teabag version and not the loose leaf version although it seems to be a pretty decent tea with a nice fruity taste. I do not plan on picking up any more teabags of it but I’d have to think about if I want to buy a tin of the loose version if I can find it as it is good but there are a lot of other teas that are better.

i prefer the classic earl grey, but for those that aren’t daily earl grey drinkers, this is a lighter, fruitier version.

I love this tea, but I can never find it outside of the Twinings variety pack. I love that it smells like fruit loops! I know that’s weird, but its so delicious!

Talked in the Discussions about this tea earlier today, and while I was out returning borrowed material to the library and the video store I bought a pack of this and Twining’s Darjeeling at my local Kroger. Wanting to take a chance with some loose leaf, I was shocked that upon searching my tea aisle for loose leaf varieties, I literally found none.

A little disappointed, I went home and tried the bagged version of this blend.

The smell is light, even after having steeped for the full five minutes and the color is dark. I can taste the black tea in there, under some citrus, fruitiness, and a pleasant, refreshing aftertaste that I can’t put my finger on. I was worried, when I notice that in the ingredients list it lists artificial flavoring, so that does reflect in my final score for this drink. Eh, to me, tea is supposed to be pretty damn guilt-free, and having artificial flavoring kind of takes away from that aspect.

Steeped this twice more, still tastes great, new rating reflects that.

All in all, a yummy tea, and one that I would have paid a bit more for, just to have it minus whatever the “artificial flavoring” was. I think it could have stood up well enough on its own without the artificial stuff.

A brand new package arrived at my table this afternoon, just in time for tea. :D

I received this tea as one of the flavors included in a Twinings variety pack. I like my tea as bold as possible. I was not excited about trying this flavor as I thought the title implied that it was a much tamer version of the macho Earl Grey tea. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Yes, the flavor is lighter than Earl Grey but not in a weak way. There is nothing “sissified” about this tea at all. The flavor is mellow and fruity and strong enough after five minutes of steeping to push aside my first cup of English Breakfast tea. I am keeping this tea in my morning rotation.

Lady Grey Tea, first produced by Twinings in the 1990s, is actually a variation on their uber-popular (and amazing) Earl Grey. Earl Grey is very much a strong tea, while Lady Grey is a slightly softer, more subtle version. It’s also a a black tea, scented with orange and lemon peel, citrus flavoring, and oil of bergamot. It’s usually considered a breakfast or afternoon tea by “professionals” (although I say drink it whenever the heck you want to), and it’s often described as “zesty” and “vibrant”. Not to mention it smells pretty awesome. Lady Grey is available from Twinings in tea bag or loose leaf form, although for those living in the US, it’s a lot harder to find the loose-leaf form. Go figure.

A very good cup! Mild for a black blend, with a distinctive hint of flowers and citric flavour. I would recommend trying it without sweeteners of any kind or milk, to appreciate its full taste, colour and aroma.
