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.

For the amount I paid (HKD103, roughly GBP9, USD13.5 for 200g), I think this is very good tea. I think it’s better than some of the more expensive ones from other brands. I also like it that I can make this tea without care and know that it will still taste good.
I am still very new to tea, I couldn’t tell if the bergamot fragrance was from real natural oil or artificial flavouring, but I loved it in this tea, I found it refreshing.
I can drink this any way, plain black, with only milk, with only sugar, or with both milk and sugar.
Note: I always make my tea in teapot. I put in 240ml water at first steep, and another 240ml second steep.

I like this tea, and not only because twinings is such a classic and nostalgic brand. This earl gray isn’t bitter (even when brewed strongly) and it tastes very simple. The bermagot isn’t too strong—it picks out the flavor nicely without being overpowering. For me this is a simpler, solid black tea to keep as a staple. I usually drink it during the afternoons.

I can’t live without this stuff.

Sometimes I feel it could stand to have a slightly stronger flavor, but it’s overall nicely balanced – far better than every other cheap Earl Grey I’ve tried at least. And the intoxicating scent alone is worth every penny.

This is MY tea. When I want a cuppa, this is what I’m talking about. It’s light, refreshing, and well balanced. Put your feet up, put on some Bach, and enjoy this tea with a bit of Walkers shortbread!

It’s me 5th day at sea, and stores are low. All I’ve got in the hold is Earl Grey and Jasmine, and a teabag o’ strawberry & rhubarb tisane. For me mornin’ brew, I choose the Earl Grey.

Tis gettin’ to the bottom o’ the tin, and the bits ‘r gettin’ smaller and smaller, and escapin’ from the basket. When I reach the bottom o’ the mug, it looks a bit like the bilge before pumpin’. If we had a gypsy wench on board, she could read me fortune.

I be enjoyin’ the brew, though. And bein’ Friday, the ship should be pullin’ inta port soon, and I can enjoy a little shore leave. Arrrr!

[It’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day… Arrrr!]

Earl Grey (loose leaf, naturally) is one of my top teas, especially on rainy days. The dark flavours of this tea really make one want to cozy up by the window and watch the rain fall. This particular brand is my favorite (next to locally grown/sold).

I love this one too. I got some of Lady Grey but think I like Earl better.


I haven’t tried Lady Grey, to be honest. I’m too in love with the handsome Earl <3


It’s lighter, but I like them strong.


I like my darker teas weak and my lighter teas strong, lol. I guess that makes me a little weird. I just made some Red Rose black tea as an iced tea. It was really bitter until I diluted it with water. My husband isn’t a fan, so I guess I get the whole pitcher to myself!


Welcome to Steepster :)


Drinking tea while watching rain fall outside is so absolutely wonderful. :)


Thanks for the welcome! And, yes, rainy days and tea go together so perfectly!

I wish they brought back the old twinnings earl grey back. This tea used to be much better.
