I quite like this tea. No need to sweeten as the licorice sweeten it naturally. As others have mentioned, nice before going to bed.

Flavors: Licorice, Peppermint

This is rather dull, not much taste of tea. A dash for lemon. The green citrus tea from Lipton is rather decent, if the conference hall stocking Lipton.

drank Russian Earl Grey by Lipton

I have this available at work. This Early Grey have a bit more citrus than traditional Earl Grey. I prefer the classic over this variant. I find this a bit dull, I would have prefered a bit more Bergamont and citrus, actually Twinings have a variant called Golden Earl Grey which is more lively. This it’s still a nice tea, but I won’t buy it my self. There are way to many exciting teas to taste and explore.

With this classic Earl Grey Fortnum & Mason have managed to hit the sweet spot. The Bergamont dominates the aroma, but the citrus is present and refreshing. I prefer to steep nearly for 5 minutes. Then I will have delicious golden colour with a distinct taste. A classic Earl Grey.

I don’t know whats wrong with this one. I might have got a damaged batch. It has a terrible synthetic taste. At first I thought i might have oversteeped it, as i normally likes my Earl Grey with a lot of taste. But a 3 minute steep didn’t change much. Unfortunatly undrinkable. Now it’s in the bin.
