Idk. All these scented green teas in teabags from Twinings taste somehow artificial to me. Cant taste what loose green tea tastes like in them. Just the added scents which don’t convince me either. I mean its not bad and many can like this for sure but i prefer genuine loose tea taste. Classic Earl Gray (black tea) from Twinings on the other hand i kinda like. Tastes way closer to the real thing. Would like to try loose green earl gray. Maybe this is how it tastes. Not a big fan atm…
Btw bergamot is quite strong in it…

I’ve wanted to try a green earl grey for a while, and when I was ordering stuff on Amazon last week, I noticed this one was readily available. I tried it for the first time today, and I’m not very impressed. This could be to do with the fact that I really oversteeped it, but it just doesn’t seem to work work flavour-wise. The bergamot flavour is very strong and a little biting, and with the green base, it veers into that off-putting herbal-tasting category. This is bizarre, because with the fresh, grassy tastes of green tea, it’s surprising that citrus doesn’t work in this case (and actually, in other cases with lemon green tea varieties.) I don’t know if it’s just because this is a supermarket quality brand that skimps on ingredients, but I’ve had a number of good teas in this price range over the years, so I don’t think it is. It’s not bad or fake tasting, but the strong bergamot just doesn’t go. My immediate thought when I took the first sip was, “The taste of this reminds me of the smell of citrus detergent.” It really doesn’t taste as bad as that would imply, though.

This was quite bitter for me, but I’ll chalk it up to my irresponsible steeping. Still, the flavour wasn’t very good. It’s not in the “instantly in the trash” category, but it’s definitely not in the “MORE!” category, either. I guess you could apply the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” logic to earl grey with black tea, but I thought this would be good to mix things up. I’d [possibly try another earl grey green in future, and will just assume this is Twinings’ mixing, but who knows! It’s unimpressive and has that annoying lavender element I sometimes taste in earl greys, to boot. Maybe it really is just that black tea can’t be replaced with green when it comes to this flavour combination…

Refreshing, but doesn’t hold up against loose leaf teas. It’s worth spending an extra couple of pounds to buy a better quality equivalent.

Flavourwise, the additions of tangerine and grapefruit remind me more of a citrus Lady Grey than traditional Earl Grey, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
