Feb. 28th, 2019

A local Middle Eastern market had a gift pack of this tea along with a free Ahmad tea mug for $4, so I couldn't pass it up. I decided to try it alongside the loose leaf Special Blend. One thing that I'll note is that, though I assume they're intended to be the same tea, the packaging on the bagged tea doesn't include t...

The "subtle flavor of bergamot" is definitely subtle. I can't actually smell any bergamot in the dry tea. Instead, it smells entirely like a malty CTC Assam.

While the tea's brewing, I can just make out the citrus through the tea. I'm getting less malt than when dry, but much more dry, tannic, earthy leaf with a bac...

This was one of the few Earl grey brands I’ve tried that managed to disappoint me. Not much to say about the flavor or scent.

I don't hate this tea but I really don't like it either. It costs 24 cents per cup and I can have much better black tea for cheaper than that so it's not worth it for me. The aroma is very faint and just smells like black tea. This tea tastes smooth but its also kind of plain. The aftertaste kind of tastes like paper t...

When you have lemons, make lemonade? That seems to have happened here. While not overpowering, the distinct aroma of lemon wafted rather aggressively out of the pouch when I tore it open, and that scent stayed in the dry bag strongly until pouring the hot water through it. The in-cup smell was more balanced, but the...

As far as breakfast teas go, I've always been a fan of Earl Grey. That said, I do have my favorites and many companies don't seem to do Earl Grey justice. While this isn't my favorite, it is an excellent option. It's smooth but with a smoky/sweet flavor, not unexpected from a Darjeeling tea. This particular tea gets al...

Admittedly I haven't been up to the Urban Teahouse location in OKC as of this writing, but drinking this at a Norman breakfast restaurant, and getting a sample to take home and chug, makes me want to pay a dangerous visit next time I'm up in that part of "The Big Town". Why dangerous? Because of what that visit woul...

Like the other standard tea bags from H&S, the tea is chopped very fine. Dry, it smells strongly of the bergamot oil, but there's also a maltiness from the tea. It's not strong, but it's a step up from many Earl Grey teas.

Adding the water unexpectedly mutes the aroma. The citrus fades to the background and the tea...

Jul. 15th, 2018

The dry tea is quite broken and smells almost like Froot Loops. Unlike most Earl Greys, though, the aroma of the tea is discernible beneath the bergamot.

The brewed tea smells mostly of malt and bergamot. The tea tastes more bitter and astringent than I expected. Based on Ahmad's other teas, I was expecting the blen...

The dry tea smells strongly of bergamot. There's no hint of other flavors, citrus or otherwise, that other brands sometimes add.

Adding water really doesn't change much. I smell bergamot and a weak hint of dry leaves. The flavor's more balanced than I would have expected, though. The underlying black tea is mellow, ...

This has a little more bergamot than your average earl grey - it has more heft and orange taste - but it is not overwhelming, and is within the normal range for an EG. I find this to be a very good tea, nice with milk and sugar or lemon and sugar (which is my favorite way to take EG), and possessing a pleasant aroma....

Apr. 8th, 2018

Farmer Brothers apparently uses the same relatively rich base tea as for their plain black offering, which similarly brews up dark and tastes stronger than most brand-name bagged teas. As such, you can pluck a bag or three off your hotel's or conference's tea table with confidence you'll get a passable, perhaps even r...

A light-liquoring cup, with mild citrus aromas. The background is slightly vegetal with fully-realized tannins. The bergamont flavor supports but does not dominate. A supermarket tea with good character but small price.

This Earl Grey Tea is one of my favorites. I *never* steep this tea for more than 2-2.5 minutes. I like the fact that it takes less time to steep than other brands and I still get the caffeine and taste that I expect from Earl Grey.

However it isnt overly caffeinated, but this is another reason I like it. Sometimes ...

This is what Earl Grey should aspire to be. Good, strong bergamot which many other Earl Greys lack. This is one of my staples.

I cannot get ENOUGH of this fantastic tea. It has a strong smell of lavender which really overpowers any other taste in the tea, but it's not so strong that you can't stand it; I could still taste a tiny bit of the regular black tea earl gray flavor. The lavender is smooth, and it's extremely calming. After drinking th...

Good blend and aroma. Achieves a delicate balance between tea taste and bergamot although bergamot slightly strong so if you want to taste the underlying tea blend might be difficult.

When I first bought this tea, I had such a bad cold that I could taste any difference between this and, say, gunpowder. It all just tasted like hot water to me.

Luckily, this turned out to have a bit more flavour and aroma once my cold cleared and I could taste things again.
The dry tea has relatively little aroma,...

This tea is probably the cheapest tea I've ever bought at under €3.50 for 500 grams, and incredibly good as well.

The dry tea smells intensely of bergamot, and the brewed tea smells sweet. The colour is a lovely red. It tastes great, too; simultaneously warming and refreshing, and, well, like bergamot. It's powerf...

This bagged tea didn't earn quite as high of a rating as Ahmad's loose-leaf version of English Afternoon, but it was very good. Oodles of bags of this turned up in my pantry in an unmarked tin (my wife likes it, apparently), so I figured to give it a try.

I could taste the bergamot a bit -- not as much as with th...

This tea isn't really the best, honestly. While compared to stronger earl greys such as twinnings, it just...doesn't cut it. If you're used to drinking stronger teas, you may want to actually brew longer or even add another bag. The citrus taste also felt weird and unnatural, not really blending well with the other fla...

This is the standard Earl Grey carried by Het Gouden Randje, but it's unusually citrus-y. I mentioned once that this tea is different from other Earl Greys I'm used to and the owner of the shop told me that other customers had said similar things.

So, it tastes and smells really citrus-y, almost like it's flavoured ...

I found this Earl Grey, loose leaf, decaf tea online. The price seemed really good so I decided to order a pound of it. I drink Earl Grey tea hot or iced. Yes, iced tea is a tradition in the southern U.S. At any rate it was not good at all. I mean it was really bad. I am not some sort of world class tea expert but have...
