Picture of Aged Earl Grey™ - Bergamot Black

Aged Earl Grey™ - Bergamot Black from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Assam, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 9th, 2019

This is one of the best Earl Greys I've had. The base tea is wonderful and the bergamot is subtle. Note that I'm saying that "subtle" is a positive thing, so if you like Earl Grey with a powerful citrus flavor, then this one might not be what you're looking for.

That said, the tea is extremely mellow for an Assam in...

Special Blend (Teabags) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

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...

English Tea No. 1 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 1st, 2019

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...

Steep Earl Grey Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2019

The dry tea smells very strongly of bergamot and very much like Bigelow's regular Earl Grey.

The taste is much different than the regular Bigelow. Much more tea shines through the citrus. I suspect that the base tea is the Steep English Breakfast, which is a flavorful Sri Lankan/Ceylon tea with a mellow cocoa bitter...

Earl Grey Supreme (Teabags) from Harney and Sons

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 25th, 2018

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...

Special Blend with Earl Grey from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

Earl Grey from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 13th, 2018

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, ...

Earl Grey Tea from Tradition

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 28th, 2017

The oversized teabags contain tea that is quite broken, but still much larger than fannings. It smells strongly of bergamot.

After brewing, the aroma is a nice balance of citrus and an earthy and malty tea. The package doesn't say where the black tea is sourced. It tastes Chinese to me, but the only unflavored black...

Earl Grey Decaffeinated Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 28th, 2017

Upon opening the pouch, the teabag smells pungently of bergamot. Unlike Twinings, this tea seems scented with only bergamot and no other citrus. Immediately after brewing, the aroma of bergamot is still strong but, like most decaf black teas, there is little noticeable tea aroma. There's a little mustiness that may rep...

Earl Grey Decaffeinated from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 27th, 2017

Presumably losing the rest of the tea flavor and aroma to the decaffeination process, this tea retains a tannic hint of dry leaves. The Twinings bergamot flavoring tastes much more like sweet oranges and is less bitter than other Earl Grey teas.

I find that the sweet and bitter of the citrus complements the faint ta...
