drank Lady Grey by Twinings
61 tasting notes

today’s brew had warmer water, and it’s much stronger! I feel that it may have lost some of the citrus, but it is still distinctly a grey, instead of a straight black tea (i.e., english breakfast, prince of wales, etc.)
this tea is shaping up to be quite versatile, and I’m glad I got it! might consider adding it to the repurchase list :)

I prefer Lady Grey teas to Earl Greys. There was a wonderful one that I had trouble sourcing again but you might find it easily. It was called Genteel Lady in translation where it was purchased in Amsterdam. I found it from a German company under the name My Lady. You might love that one! I reviewed it here on Steepster under Genteel Lady.

I’ll definitely be on the lookout; thanks, RA!

I decided to hunt for it again. I found it years ago from a German company but you had to buy a ton or they wouldn’t ship to the US. It is sold by Mount Everest Tea Company GmbH under the name My Lady. I remembered it as a Lady Grey type but I see it has no bergamot and it mango-pineapple primarily. I think it has been over ten years since I had it, so I am pleased to see it is still around.

RA! I think I found it on a reseller! Or at least something extremely similar; I’ll also check on my local tea store, I have a theory that they sell tea from a Spanish and a German distributor (private labelling?)

I am sure Luis in Budapest bought theirs from a large distributor, so I believe you are quite right!
