I’m so so in love with this tea & yet so sad I’ve read it tastes different since the company was bought. Does anyone knows a bit more about it?

I really wanted it :(

Well I can’t believe what a 10 secs difference makes. It worked, tasted better, bergamot’s a bit shy but it’s presence lingers quite well & finally feels like it pairs well with the rose petals :D

I’m disappointed. Super dark liquor. Ceylon base is neutral, a bit woody. I smell a hint of roses blended with citrous that fades to a minimum aftertaste. This is my second cup, so reading your reviews are keeping me hopeful, I’ll steep longer next time.

I love Earls with lavender, but this lavender tastes beyond delicious. It’s strong & aromatic. The black base is nice not strong. I love how well it pairs with the bergamot, even when the lavender is stronger, you still can taste the bergamot.

I liked it a lot, but not as an earl variation, can’t taste the bergamot, but it’s tangy & floral. I bet iced is great. The black base is nice, but I need to brew it a little less time, a little too strong with 5:30 minutes. Quite yummy

Light green liquor, earthy & soft taste, smells like a rainy forest. The leaves are so pretty, big & green. Drinkin’ it straight, anyone use any sweetener &/or milk with oolong?

This was a gift from China, straight out of the company’s tea house. It’s floral, fresh, earthy, the liquor is amber. One thing I’m learning is to manage a generous tea spoon. It’s unbelievable when the green tea is fresh. The jasmine is really nice, not perfumey or dominant. I have another box waiting so I better start drinking :D

It smells so good. Once brewed the liquor is reddish, like a red ale. The assam base is quite nice, bold, malty & strong, most of the Earls I’ve tried have this assam base. I don’t know if my whole milk is killing the citrus/bergamot flave, but you hardly taste it, even without the milk. Have to try it again.

It has become my earl grey of the moment, last time I mentioned it was light I meant colour wise. As for flavour it’s a nice wake up slap, perfect for a morning or pick me up cup. It’s earthy, grassy, a wood aroma with hints of freshly pinched tea leaves. It tastes really fresh like it was recently packed ready to send out to the vendor. The bergamot tastes like it was carefully selected. I wonder if the same care is put to the rest of the TWG Teas. Love the amber liquor. Im not a fan of re steeping but this is the first tea I re steeped & tastes good, a little stronger, but good.

I drink mostly Earl Grey. Enjoy Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon. Love Masala Chai, Jasmine & some greens from Japan. I like blends as long as they taste natural & are well balanced. I’m new to Oolong & Pu-erh which so far taste fantastic. Some infusions that I make on a regular basis are orange tree leaves, lemongrass, guava, apple-cinnamon-cardamom, etc.

Casi siempre bebo Earl Grey. Disfruto del Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam & Ceylon. Me encanta el Masala Chai, Jazmín & otros tés verdes del Japón. Me gustan los blends siempre & cuando el sabor sea natural & tengan un buen balance. Soy nueva con el Oolong & el Pu-erh los cuales hasta ahora me parecen fantásticos. Algunas infusiones que hago regularmente son hojas de naranjo, limón, guayaba, manzana-canela-cardamomo, etc.
