Earl Grey from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

64 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 6th, 2019

I got this from a restaurant hot-tea selection box and took home an extra bag to taste-test on good well water. The bergamot was somewhat feeble throughout the consumption experience. Still, it's among the better Twinings teas I've had (yes, I realize that's not saying much).

Sweetened, as I always do, this prod...

Earl Grey from Allegro

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

54 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 2nd, 2018

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...

Earl Grey from Urban Teahouse

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

84 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 14th, 2018

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...

Earl Grey from Farmer Brothers

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

61 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Aged Earl Grey™ - Bergamot Black from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Assam, India

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 5th, 2017

This was one of the atypical flavored teas I've had with a scent (both dry-bag and in-cup) noticeably bigger than the taste. I'm having trouble rating this tea because it depends on what you're seeking. Aroma? Strong, fruity, potent, almost mouth-watering. Looks and taste? The base tea is very rich and flavorful, ...

Earl Grey Decaffeinated from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

37 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 30th, 2017

As of this writing, the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain has started offering this tea as their mainstay Earl Grey for service, without telling the customer up front that it is decaffeinated. My wife ordered hot tea, expecting the usual (if tolerable) Lipton rubbish, and got this rubbish instead.

I need to qualify t...

English Tea No. 1 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

74 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 24th, 2017

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...

Earl Grey -- Kericho Highlands Estate from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Kenya

70 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 13th, 2016

Wow, if the name of this tea were any longer, it would need to be hauled in on a freight train. Fortunately the flavor still is there by the time one is finished reciting its name. :-)

This for now is a food-service tea, apparently different than Numi's "Aged Earl Grey" (which I have not tasted yet), and offered...

English Afternoon from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

I didn't see a place on here for their loose-leaf version of this tea, but in general my impressions are the same (if more favorably numbered) than Alex Zorach's below. No tea on Earth is too strong for me, but I'll at least call this one worthy of the adjective "strong". The value ranking is the only thing holding i...

Double Bergamot Earl Grey Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

So far, this is my favorite EG, because it's less expensive than similarly robust English teas but comparable in body and richness. This tea hits you with a hearty dose of bergamot, exactly as advertised. No pretension, no fanciful attempts at backtaste or mystery...and I like it that way. It's a tea John Wayne migh...

Earl Grey from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

As Earl Greys go, this is about average. Decent, but somewhat flat. Bigelow seems to pride themselves on black-tea quality, and their other flavored teas seem to back up such sentiment.

This, however, is a tea that smells far stronger and better in its packaging than it brews out. The bergamot seems muted, unde...
