Review of Double Bergamot Earl Grey Tea

8 of 103 of 55 of 570 of 100

Earl Grey Tea started my journey into black tea not so long ago. And so, I've tried this one for the double bergamot, thinking that it might be revealing what I like in Earl Grey, and I'm still looking forward to find a good, well-balanced, cheap one.

I bought a box of 20 of these in a Target for about $3, so the value seems about right.

I have to say, the product is as advertised. The flavor of the bergamot is very present, maybe a bit too much for my personal taste. My opinion is that it tastes a bit like hot orange juice with black tea, but I'm not an expert. I just feel like the Earl Grey that I know is a bit muted by the very prominent bergamot flavor.

Overall, I think this tea is directed at those who knows Earl Grey Teas for a long long time, and just wants to try something new, something more fruitful.

Hello, and welcome to RateTea, and thank you for your first review!

I haven't tried this particular one, but I also recently tried another Earl Grey that struck me as too bergamot-ey for my tastes, so I can relate to this a lot. I can see people liking this sort of blend, but I think my favorite balance is one where I'm able to enjoy the flavor of the base tea more. I actually like Stash's regular Earl Grey a fair amount, and I think it even tends to the more bergamot side, especially compared to Twinings and a lot of other mainstream tea bag brands.

Let me know if you have any questions about the site, or about tea! You can reach me through the contact form on the site, or through commenting on reviews, or the social media accounts on my profile!

I look forward to reading more of your reviews!

Thank you for the greeting message ^_^

I have discovered more about tea in the last couple of weeks than in my whole life, and I think I might become an addict soon.

I am slowly trying the Twinings 4 little demo package (English black tea, Earl Grey, Lady Grey and Irish black tea) and so far, I think the black teas straight are a bit too much bitter for my taste, even with a teaspoon of sugar. I haven't tried the Lady Grey yet, I've learned that it is a licensed tea from Twinnings, can't wait to try it out!

One small thing I wanna mention, I've enjoyed all the Earl Grey teas I've tried to this date, but the one I prefer (yet) is still the one I first tasted at the restaurant Mc Donalds. It's an Higgins & Burke Earl Grey. I noticed that it is not listed on RateTea.com, but maybe I just missed it or it's not popular enough.

Have a good day/night.
