Commercial Description

The recipe for this delightful blend was presented to the second Earl Grey in the 1880s and has become one of the world’s classic teas. Our Earl Grey is light and elegant with the delicate fragrance of Bergamot, and can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Brewing Instructions: (from Taylors of Harrogate)

For the perfect cup we recommend that you use one tea bag. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-5 minutes. Serve with or without milk to taste.

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 me through college when I just didn’t want coffee. So this was my base for all other Earl Greys.
If I’m being honest, my palate is slightly numb. With a poor sense of smell I am used to overpowering my senses with strong cigar smoke, deep black coffee, and dominating cologne.

Earl Grey is not about that, this is a light and refined blend with balance and a little bite on the finish. I learned from good tea to treat it with tact and it will reward with more nuance and enjoyment.

This is a solid cuppa, and I can’t help but heel happy to serve guests a pot when they ask for this timeless classic. At the end of the day when the curtains draw and it is just family/friends/company around, that is what Earl Grey is to me.
Well done Taylor’s, you’ve stood up to the expectations of memory with a great blending of a classic taste.

This is my favorite Earl Grey tea. Well balanced Bergamot flavor. Nice large tea bags w/o strings. It is hard to come by in the U.S. and is not hermetically sealed so the quality varies depending on how the tea is stored. My recent mail-order from Amazon was a disappointment even though the expire date is 18 mo. away.

Simply put, this is the finest Earl Grey I've yet to try. Perfect balance of bergamot with the rich tea used. Fine aroma, flavor and finish.

This is among the better Earl Greys I've had from a tea bag. Strong, very bitter, but not too tannic (especially if you use a briefer brewing). The bold bergamot presence is balanced by an aromatic black tea. I would not call this tea "light and elegant"--I think this is a stronger tea (but I used one teabag for cup).

I think you can get away with a shorter brewing too...this tea could easily become too strong if brewed too long. This is really a step up from the mainstream American brands available in most supermarkets.
