i love earl grey but i’m not keen on this one … sorry tea pigs. i find it bitter and it smells herbal rather than citrusy. maybe it’s the darjeeling? i don’t know. personally i like chinese teas so this one isn’t for me.
“Opened my final box of this today. Once it’s finished, I won’t be buying any more for a while. Not because it’s not a nice earl gray, because it is. Just because I’ve had far too much of it...” Read full tasting note

About this tea:
Most of the Earl Greys you find use a poor quality tea base from China, which is like palming yourself off as landed gentry when all you own is a Barbour. We use the finest Darjeeling from the foothills of the Himalayas and add to it the finest bergamot citrus from sunny southern Italy to create something altogether more gentrified.
naturally contains caffeine
Compare the large leaf in our tea temples to the dust in your regular tea bag; whole leaf is best.
The exotic, floral tones of Darjeeling tea are balanced with the zesty citrus taste of bergamot.
With a slice of lemon, no milk – that’s the way we like it, but each to their own. Same with the sugar.
Good if you’re feeling:
Bored, lethargic and in need of a lift. Gives a subtle boost to concentration without a dizzyingly unnerving caffeine headspin.
To buy our Darjeeling Earl Grey black tea online, select the quantity of loose leaf tea, temple teas or sample tins you would like and then add to basket.
Black tea, flavouring, cornflower petals
One tea temple per person, infused in boiling water for at least 3 minutes. Don’t rush – just relax, watch the leaves and petals unfurl. Try this with a slice of lemon.
