Earl's Gold from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 18th, 2022

This is the second loose-leaf Earl Grey I've had from Murchie's, and an outstanding example of the type, especially for someone like me who likes a bold, assertive tea. It is made from Assam, Keemun and Yunnan, and you bet the Assam asserts itself boldly in all phases of taste and aroma. Upon opening the bag, the dry...

Earl Grey from Williamson Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 2nd, 2022

The round, tagless tea bags are packed into a sealed mylar pouch, but aren't individually wrapped. The freshly opened pouch smells of bergamot, but isn't as fruity as Williamson's Duchess Grey. The bergamot has an aroma that is present in the Duchess Grey, but otherwise unique to Willamson. It's fruity, but almost has ...

Earl Grey from Benner Tea Co

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

52 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 5th, 2022

Benner English Breakfast is ALDI's regular "premium" offering. This Earl Grey is a periodic special.

The tea bags are packaged in individual cellophane pouches. The dry tea looks like CTC granules that have been further crumbled. It has a nice bergamot aroma.

The brewing tea smells of bergamot, but there's little...

Earl Grey from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

58 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 5th, 2022

The dry tea is finely chopped and smells strongly of citrus. There are a few white flecks in the bag that according to the ingredients are probably bergamot peel.

I'm pretty sure that the citrus in Twinings Earl Grey is a blend. The bergamot is pronounced (as it should be in an Earl Grey), but I also taste sweet ora...

Jul. 18th, 2022

This is a mellow EG, with a smooth base tea and subdued bergamot flavor. Usually I prefer my EG with lemon and sugar, but imo this works best with milk and just a little sugar.

Double Bergamot Earl Grey Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 7th, 2022

The foil-sealed tea bags each contain just shy of 2g of tea. The box claims a net weight of 33g in 18 bags, which makes for 1.8g of tea.

The dry tea bag smells strongly of bergamot. It also smells fresher than most other Earl Grey, like freshly cut fruit. This may be the fruitiest-smelling Earl Grey I've tried.

May. 5th, 2021

Several better Earl Greys exist in bags, but for the price (around $2.50/20 ct.), it's hard to beat. Dry-bag scent was firm and plain, but pleasant and strong, more so than most bagged Earl Greys. Closer inspection revealed likely why. Even though all the tea was settled at the bag's bottom, each bag itself so far h...

My wife is trying to cut back caffeine intake, and had me include this offering in the latest virtual "Murchie's run" that we do a time or two per year. And being a big fan of both happy marriages and the $CAD---->$USD exchange rates the last few years, I did not object.

Now that I've tried the tea, I'm glad that I...

I’m not an expert on earl gray. This may be the first I’ve ever had.

Prep: 200F, 5min, 2.5tsp, 16oz

Aroma - There is a ton of citrus exploding out of the cup. I can’t pick up much else, honestly.

Flavor: A little bit of orange peel, more orange zesty notes. It’s pretty hard to get to the actual tea....

Having not been either impressed nor repulsed by Bigelow's regular Earl Grey, and having not gotten any new teas to review for some months, and having to work down a stockpile of reviewed teas, I finally raided my wife's cache of the decaf version to try it for a report here. I've missed RateTea more than I've missed ...

Cup at home, made from a teabag. Pours hazy dark brown (against white china) with sediment. Intense aroma of malt, bergamot oil, citrus and, well, horse manure, if you ask me, with some leafy notes of black tea. Bitter flavour of black tea, with some malty notes (Assam?) and citric touches and hints of bergamot oil. As...

I'm not sure if this is actually different than plain "Earl Grey." According to the Ahmad US website, "Aromatic Earl Grey has a slightly lower dosage of bergamot when compared to Earl Grey," but the Aromatic Earl Grey is only sold in large containers (454g or 500g) and the largest Earl Grey package is 250g. The UK webs...

Inside the box, the fifty round, tagless teabags are stacked in a sealed Mylar pouch. They're not individually wrapped.

Upon opening the pouch for the first time, the citrus aroma is wonderful and intense. The teabags themselves appear to be sprayed with citrus oil (presumably bergamot, but it smells a bit sweeter t...

This earl grey had the strangest green unripe taste. I wasn’t a fan which is disappointing since I had high hopes after trying their Assam.

I was blown away by this when I first tried it, but a little less so now. Btw it has a slight name and number change: it is now Blue Flower Earl Grey, NT16. The use of flowers and flavoring adds a unique and refreshing twist to the Earl Grey model. The base tea is fairly light, and I think they have reduced the inte...

I must confess this tea was like a sort of introduction for me to the world of teas. I used to have it as a child on Sunday afternoons by my father. We had it strong and with plenty of sugar.

I'd say that this tea offers a very respectable value for money. In my area, it can be found easily (even in not specialized ...

Let’s be honest, you probably know what Earl Grey tastes like.
How does this iteration stack up? Splendidly.

Bagged, 10oz, 5:30 steep time. This particular steep was perfect, with distinct black tea through the sip and a bergamot rushing in to match it.

I used to drink Twining’s Earl Grey by the box. It got ...

This is the first time I'm trying Bigelow Earl Grey in loose form. I've purchased the teabags in the past, but from other experiences, I know that the loose tea and teabags don't always have the same taste.

My first impression was that, compared to other black earl grey teas I've gotten in tins, this variety has muc...

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear light fudge brown with no sediment. Clear aroma of Darjeeling tea, with notes of bergamot oil and mild touches of caramel. Mild, bitterish Darjeeling flavour, with its natural sweetness, enriched with dryish notes of bergamot. Clean black tea palate. This is one of the best Earl Grey...
