As a recent convert to tea, I don’t have much experience with other earl greys, so I’ll have to rate this with nothing to compare it to.

I find this tea to be mostly okay. It tastes better in the first few sips when it’s hotter, but the taste gets a bit too strong as it cools down. Not a huge fan of this.

This tea is a delightful blend of strawberry and has a beautiful aroma that is very distinctly fruity and sweet. This is yummy. I really love fruity teas and perfumes – and this is another one that I’m very drawn to.

This is one of those teas that I drink only once in awhile, because I find that the strawberry flavor is a bit too isolated – and pretty strong. I prefer blended teas with a mixture that arrives with a beautiful blend of ingredients like a beautiful chord played on the piano or with a symphony. I don’t like perfumes or teas where there appears to have one note played more sharply than the rest. This tea has a very blended, well balanced type taste. It steeps into a very deep, rich, red color.

This is my next fave chamomile tea next to Clipper. I really don’t taste any lemongrass though. It really just tastes like chamomile to me. I have bought more than 1 box. I always drink hot with a little honey at night.

Flavors: Floral

I bought the giant 500 gram tin because I like living dangerously! I expected, for the price, that I would get a blah tea. But I have a theory that you become accostomed to what you drink and learn to prefer the flavor of whatever you have. I decided that after 500 grams of the stuff I would luuvv this tea! But I won’t be able to test that theory on this tea. Sadly, I really like this one on first taste. The tea base stands out and is fairly rich with malty goodness. My box of tea was not lacking in bergamot flavor but it is light. However, that light touch of bergamot compliments the maltiness of the tea in such a way as to suggest a little black pepper and camphor wòods. The tea is a little bitter and slightly tannic in a good way and the bergamot leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste without being perfumy. This is a pretty good cuppa for the price. In fact, I like it just as well as the much pricier Harney and Sons Earl Grey Supreme, which tastes similar.
The sites sliders do not play well with tablets so here are my brewing parameters:
7 grams tea, 500 ml water just off boil, steep 5 minutes. Really nice with a little milk.

Strong like a Londoner. This tea hits your taste buds like a brick. It has (too) intense aroma and very drying properties. Highly tannic and astringent. Not my favorite one. I am not into bergamot flavot so much and this tea is. Just overpowered with this scent. As strong as a cup of black coffee. Good substitute for your morning joe.

Certainly not an overpowering tea, a pleasantly even and mild floral flavour, with a playful hint at the natural bitterness of black tea. Perfect for a slow afternoon.

Amazing in all respects.

The smell is spot on for the dessert, the flavour is subtler than the aroma but you can still taste the spices and pear throughout.

Smells like a sweet jammy cake before steeping, a truly mouthwatering smell. After steeping the strawberry aroma is less sweet. The taste itself is a little subdued with the strawberry being the main flavour coming through with the tea.

A very strongly sweet strawberry smell dry while a bit more subdued when steeped. Light strawberry flavour with softened edges from the vanilla.

it isn’t revitalising but it is very tasty, the cherry is the strongest of the flavours but as long as you don’t overdo the steep time it isn’t too much. Gorgeous smell too.

Wow. Absolutely zero flavor vanilla flavor to this vanilla tea. I love strong teas, but this one is bitter and weirdly pungent without any real character to it. Not a fan.

I have the loose leaf version and it has a mellow flavor. It does not have a very strong citrus or bergamot flavor.

A brisk, astringent, invigorating cup. Takes milk well. Blends well with other things, too—I especially like it with a little mint, tulsi, or lavender from my garden. Not that you have to put anything in it—it is delicious straight too and very versatile. Very reasonably priced, too, for the quality! I’ve been drinking this tea very happily for years.

Flavors: Astringent, Tannic

Ahmad Aromatic Earl Grey is my daily stalwart for at least a decade. The cut Ceylon black loose leaf is a robust, somewhat malty. Best in the 17.5 ounze – 500 gram white tin.

I enjoy a strong morning tea, and unlike any other, Ahmad Aromatic Earl Grey always serves up cup after cup a morning expectation; dare I say entitlement? Venerable.

Holds up to, nay, well withstands hunny and milk (I know, I know).

The bergamot is mild and somewhat generic. Though in a newly opened or nearly empty tin, the bergamot is strong. Must vapor away during my steep.

Flavors: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Malt, Nutty
