From Twinings

Fine black tea expertly blended with the citrus fruit flavor of bergamot, to deliver an uplifting tea with a unique floral aroma and refreshing taste.

Twinings has been blending my family tea for years. Today, I am proud to continue this tradition with the tea celebrated throughout the world known as Twinings Earl Grey. Legend has it, that my ancestor, the second Earl Grey, was presented with this exquisite recipe by an envoy on his return from China.

This is the tea I probably drink more than any other. I’ve tried other Earl Grey teas but none really come close.

2 sugars with lemon or just lemon depending on my mood.

It’s unexceptional, but really pleasant to drink. Probably the best tea I’ve tried from Twinings, definitely better than the English Breakfast.

It’s also the only loose leaf tea available in my nearest shop, so works well as a standby when I haven’t bought anything else.

Enjoyed Earl Grey and Twinnings is a good standard brand.

This is a nice smooth and rich tea, with a nice bergamot flavor. It goes well with a splash of cream for an early morning brew. Although I drink this less often than I had in my early tea drinking days; I find this suitable in my cuppa from time to time.

I am on a personal mission to find the best Earl Grey, my favorite tea. This brand is one of the cheapest and available in most store as loose-leaf, but the bergamot and other flavors are too weak for it to truly stand on its own. This is a tea that I drink with a heavy meal; its flavors can accentuate other delicacies, but are not unique enough to worry about being overpowered. I recommend it as a back-up or mealtime tea, particularly if no day is complete without a cup of Earl Grey.

That is first tea I have pleasure to fall in love with. Before I drunk tea in teabags :). This tea is pretty strong and has nice aroma. It’s not very expensive… and it’s available in common markets. Very good for beginners. Reccomeded :)

Now that I have a kettle at work, I can bring better teas to drink during the day. Man, did I ever need a hot cuppa when I walked in this morning, too! The winter wind is enough to take your breath away. This is the first of probably many mugs of tea that I will consume today.

And what a delicious one it is, too! The base is definitely Ceylon, which mingles with the very high quality bergamot oil and gives the liquor the scents of cherry, cranberry, and citrus. I concur with the other reviews— this is a totally different animal than its bagged counterpart by the same company.

Upon sipping… The bergamot is there and is genuine, but does not overpower the cup. I get notes of orange, milk chocolate, and something metallic— iron? That might be due to my use of a metal tea ball infuser. It’s a finely blended and delicate tea, nonetheless. Excellent value for the price.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cherry, Chocolate, Cranberry

I’ve added a small lemon slice and sweetened it with half of a packet of Truvia; I’m disappointed, actually, that I’d never had Earl Grey before today.
