From Twinings

Fine black tea expertly blended with the citrus fruit flavor of bergamot, to deliver an uplifting tea with a unique floral aroma and refreshing taste.

Twinings has been blending my family tea for years. Today, I am proud to continue this tradition with the tea celebrated throughout the world known as Twinings Earl Grey. Legend has it, that my ancestor, the second Earl Grey, was presented with this exquisite recipe by an envoy on his return from China.

This is the tea I probably drink more than any other. I’ve tried other Earl Grey teas but none really come close.

2 sugars with lemon or just lemon depending on my mood.

It’s unexceptional, but really pleasant to drink. Probably the best tea I’ve tried from Twinings, definitely better than the English Breakfast.

It’s also the only loose leaf tea available in my nearest shop, so works well as a standby when I haven’t bought anything else.

I’ve added a small lemon slice and sweetened it with half of a packet of Truvia; I’m disappointed, actually, that I’d never had Earl Grey before today.

For the amount I paid (HKD103, roughly GBP9, USD13.5 for 200g), I think this is very good tea. I think it’s better than some of the more expensive ones from other brands. I also like it that I can make this tea without care and know that it will still taste good.
I am still very new to tea, I couldn’t tell if the bergamot fragrance was from real natural oil or artificial flavouring, but I loved it in this tea, I found it refreshing.
I can drink this any way, plain black, with only milk, with only sugar, or with both milk and sugar.
Note: I always make my tea in teapot. I put in 240ml water at first steep, and another 240ml second steep.

I like this tea, and not only because twinings is such a classic and nostalgic brand. This earl gray isn’t bitter (even when brewed strongly) and it tastes very simple. The bermagot isn’t too strong—it picks out the flavor nicely without being overpowering. For me this is a simpler, solid black tea to keep as a staple. I usually drink it during the afternoons.

I can’t live without this stuff.

Sometimes I feel it could stand to have a slightly stronger flavor, but it’s overall nicely balanced – far better than every other cheap Earl Grey I’ve tried at least. And the intoxicating scent alone is worth every penny.

This is MY tea. When I want a cuppa, this is what I’m talking about. It’s light, refreshing, and well balanced. Put your feet up, put on some Bach, and enjoy this tea with a bit of Walkers shortbread!
