Commercial Description

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 everyday Dolorès of earl grey teas; it lacks innovation and sensual effervescence.

I always find earl gray a bit weak although this one is especially compared to loose ones

This is a common Earl Grey. Very smooth, lovely after-taste. I like that I don't feel the need to add sweetener to this tea. Excellent morning blend.

Very disappointed; once the packet has been opened the tea loses its flavour within a couple of days. Would not purchase again.

This is a tea I drink daily, the citrus tones are lovely when starting to drink this tea for the first time, but over time excessive or daily drinking, diminishes the appeal of the tea and appears as another ordinary bergamot tea. I thus urge drinkers to perhaps enjoy this tea from time to time to truly appreciate the flavour of the tea.

Pleasant and mild. This tea, when steeped properly, and with a bit of sugar and a splash of milk added, is delicious.

A lovely tea full of flavour, but pricey and in a tea bag.

If you are just starting to drink tea, this is another great product from Twinings, when you open the box, you can definitely smell the bergamot. I drink this daily, I let it steep for 4-5 minutes add one cube of sugar and enjoy. The teabags are individually wrapped so you don't have to store in an air tight container if you don't want to, also really nice if you travel/camping.

Grocery store teas often deserve more credit than they are sometimes granted by those who graduate to better teas. Are there better Earl Grey teas out there? You bet. Is this, when doctored up a bit with some cream and sugar, a reasonable tasty beverage? It is.

Disclaimer out of the way, this Earl Grey has just enough of a (vaguely lemon'ish) bergamont to carry a single steep in a small cup. After that you're left with a one-note black with very little aroma and too much astringency.

A nice, moderately strong tea with a small dose of bergamot that really keeps things from getting boring.
