This seemed to be a red tea, instead of the usual black. There was the same sourish aftertaste that I had gotten from a rooibos tea once. Also in the aftertaste was a herb-ish taste from the bergamot. The bergamot aroma and flavor were not as strong as TWG’s Earl Grey Gentleman Tea. I love bergamot, so this mildness disappointed me. I couldn’t detect much citrus flavor; I was more preoccupied with the floral notes of the cornflowers. Unlike ‘regular’ Earl Grey, I don’t think this tea could stand up to the addition of milk.

A soothing cuppa, love the fragrance! Great for a cold rainy day.

Parents received this as a gift so I’m using it as my daily drinker.

Pleasantly surprised because compared to the last Earl Grey I had (Gianfranco’s by Postcard Teas, a very fancy store), this is much more drinkable. The black tea is very mild and pleasantly sweet. Nothing strong, bitter or astringent here, though the citrus notes are also very faint (almost non-existent). But this is my perfect afternoon cup on fuss-free non-gongfu tea days.

very lightly aromatic. beautiful early in the morning. i drink it first thing when i reach office. the cornflowers give a nice flowery aroma to the tea. i drink it just with hot water, without any milk or sugar. i dont think the tea can stand up to the fat in the milk.

Flavors: Fruity

It’s not bad but very mild. I can barely taste the bergamot.

I’m not sure if we are tasting the same tea. Mine came in a sachet. I truly love the scent; pleasant, light, not overpowering. Not a connoisseur or expert. Just at entry level here. But i certainly do enjoy this concoction.

This French earl gray by TWG is quite a disappointment. It is still a nice cup of tea. However, the aroma and scent of bergamot is very mild that it doesn’t qualified to be a nice cup of earl grey. Plus it is kind of expensive. So anyone who is looking for earl grey with a more than mild taste of bergamot, this shouldn’t be the choice.


Hi there. I am new to the tastes of different teas. Honestly, I thought that TWG’s French Earl Grey was/is fabulous. You are obviously a connoisseur, can you recommend your choices of great Earl Greys and where i could get them please? You assistance would be most appreciated. Thanks much


Hi. I think the tea is still a nice cup of tea, but it doesn’t lift up to my expectations of a good cup of earl grey. My recommendation would be the earl grey by Revolution. Added with lavender the taste is amazing. Also the earl grey by Teapigs. Like the TWG one corn flowers are added, but it is so much cheaper, and the bergamot taste is actually there, lingering. Lastly, the earl grey by The Lawn Tea is also awesome. They add rose petals and corn flowers, though the bergamot taste isn’t super strong, it is stronger than that of TWG, and it looks as beautiful as it tastes :)
