About Earl Grey Green Tea

Long, Flat Green Tea Leaves
Earl Grey Green
from Adagio Teas
Earl Grey green tea tea is a style of flavored tea produced by scenting green tea with oil from the peel of the bergamot orange (Citrus bergamia). Earl Grey tea was historically made with black tea, but recently, as green teas have increased in popularity, green varieties have become increasingly prominent.

Earl Grey green tea has a similar flavor and aroma to black Earl Grey tea, since the bergamot is a dominant and defining characteristic of the tea. A number of different varieties of green tea are used. Often, the variety and grade of green tea used in Earl Grey green tea is not specified.

Did you know?

The bergamot orange is unrelated to the "bergamot" plants (Monarda sp.), "wild bergamot", "Oswego tea", or "bee balm", all native to North America. These plants, however, have a very similar aroma, and make outstanding herbal teas. They can also be blended with green tea to yield a flavored tea closely resembling Earl Grey green tea.

What can I say? I am not usually a fan of green tea, because I don't like its "bitter" taste. But this one converted me. The trick is that is is flavoured with bergamot oil (usually found in Earl Grey Teas) and dried pieces of Seville oranges. The result is a truly amazing flavour that smooths (without masking) the tra...

I am so confused.

I don't quite understand how Earl Grey is supposed to work with green tea, but if you put your prejudices and confusion aside, this actual tastes pretty decent. The bergamot is by far the dominating flavor of the blend. I'm not sure why I would pick this over one of the regular blends, though.

I like the idea of this tea a bit better than the execution, in this case. I'm not generally a fan of black teas, but bergamot is a nice flavor, so with the right green tea and done well, I bet that it would be lovely. Here, it was a bit too easy to overbrew the tea. The directions advise 2-4 minutes, but that's far to...

I find it interesting that this tea is sometimes presented as green and other times presented as oolong. The base is pouchong or bao zhong, and it is flavored with bergamot as Earl Grey tea is...it is NOT the same as Yongchun Fo Shou, the other tea called Bergamot Oolong, a tea I like very much.

Edgy, lemony, and s...

This surprised me; it's a whole-leaf tea with relatively large leaves; a few of the leaves are broken or torn but most are intact.

Fruity and floral aroma, even perfumey, with a slightly smoky finish. Gentler than any other Earl Grey I've had. The flavor profile is similar to a high-quality Jasmine, but the aroma ...
