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.

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.

Now that I have a kettle at work, I can bring better teas to drink during the day. Man, did I ever need a hot cuppa when I walked in this morning, too! The winter wind is enough to take your breath away. This is the first of probably many mugs of tea that I will consume today.
And what a delicious one it is, too! The base is definitely Ceylon, which mingles with the very high quality bergamot oil and gives the liquor the scents of cherry, cranberry, and citrus. I concur with the other reviews— this is a totally different animal than its bagged counterpart by the same company.
Upon sipping… The bergamot is there and is genuine, but does not overpower the cup. I get notes of orange, milk chocolate, and something metallic— iron? That might be due to my use of a metal tea ball infuser. It’s a finely blended and delicate tea, nonetheless. Excellent value for the price.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cherry, Chocolate, Cranberry
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.
Flavors: Bergamot, Caramel, Cherry Wood, Citrusy, Dates, Dried Fruit, Round , Toasty, Toffee
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.
