From Wissotzky Tea

This is a blend of the choicest black tea perfumed with the fragrance of Bergamot. The Bergamot is a citrus fruit and from its peel an aromatic oil is produced which provides the marvelous taste and aroma of Earl Grey Tea. The tea is named after the British Earl Charles Grey who was the first person to mix this tea.

I’m a big fan of Earl Grey tea. The fruity bergamot flavor is a terrific complement to both black and green teas. This particular Earl Grey black tea by Wissotzky seems to be hiding both the tea and bergamot flavors under a bushel. I am doubtful that I would have pinpointed the presence of bergamot if I hadn’t first read the list of ingredients on the package. It isn’t just the low level of bergamot that is disappointing here. I also struggled to cull any identifiable tea flavor at all. The flavor that is present is not bad, there just isn’t enough of it.

Just out of curiosity, where are you getting Wissotzky tea? Are you in Israel?

Stoo

I am in the United States. I bought this tea through QVC.com (http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/view.2/app.detail/params.item.M20301.desc.Wissotzky-Tea-Serving-Box-with-80-Assorted-Teas) as part of an 80-assorted-tea gift box. It was a great deal! In this day and age, if you can’t find what you’re looking for in your local store, chances are you can get it on-line. Thank you for your question. Happy sipping!

Oh, I’m not looking to purchase their teas. I’m in Israel and Wissotzky is our biggest tea manufacturer, and sold just about everywhere here.

I was just surprised to see a review of their teas as I didn’t know they sold Wissozky in the US.

Oh god, how is this soooo expensive.

The bag is absolutely terrible quality, the first bag I pulled out of the packet ripped on me and tea flew everywhere. All over the counter.

It’s cheap if you can find it in stores, but it’s freaking expensive on eBay. Then again, you’re buying from the Holy Land.

Flavor wise, it’s terrible. I’ve had better earl greys at gas stations that were generic. It’s weak, it’s light, it reminds me of drinking water with some flavour. I feel gross after drinking it.
Bergamot? What bergamot. it’s like they shoved it on the bag and just said “good enough”.

All in all, don’t get this crap.

Flavors: Bergamot, Fishy

Well, where do I start. Its earl grey. Barely. Its not a bad tea, but its not good either. Its literally mediocre. Wissotzky really hypes up its tea as being the best thing ever but its far from it- the merchants on eBay from Israel have the gall to sell 3 bags for $10.
I bought a box at the local Wegmans for $3.something. At the price, its not bad. Its better than most any generic Earl Grey. But the flavor of Bergamot is very faint, and the black tea is very weak. Sugar makes you imagine the Bergamot is there more than it actually is.

You must not make a large cup with these bags – nor should you try making an iced Earl Grey as the faintest addition of water will dilute this tea to the point of tastelessness.

Overall, I have to say this tea makes me say Oy Vey – its cheap and it shows. Even the packaging/bags was poorly constructed (and was suspiciously similar to a cheap Egyptian black tea I have).

I wanted to love this tea – I mean, EGs are my favourite tea ever – but the flavouring was so muted and the black base so blah that it really wasn’t a fun cup at all. I made it through a couple mouthfuls before dumping the whole thing.

So I suppose if you want to drink an EG without actually tasting any bergamot…well, then this is probably the tea for you. If not, then move along – there are far better EGs out there.

I received a sample of this from KiwiDelight. Thank you!

The reviews of this tea were not that great, and I have to be honest I also wasn’t a huge fan. The base was very light and did not support the off tasting bergamot. I am grateful for the chance to try another EG, bu this one wasn’t my favorite.

Not a bad tea. Not a good tea either. A terrible example of Earl Grey, more like English Breakfast.
