I have no complaints about the aroma, it smells like a mix of oranges and lemons, which is pleasant, especially first thing in the morning when you need an extra zing.

Sadly the flavor left a lot to be desired, it tasted too artificial. Like drinking a particularly weak tea that accidentally had some perfume dumped into it. This is the first tea I have had in a long time that I did not like at all.

I was unimpressed with this variation on the classic Earl Grey. Of course, this blend lacks the bergamot which makes Earl Grey so distinctive, I think in an attempt to soften the flavor. Unfortunately, for me it softens the flavor too much.

To me this tea tastes weak and thin. While the overall blend of citrus is not unpleasant, it lacks any sort of black tea punch. I have come to prefer stronger teas, and as such, this blend just doesn't do it for me. I can see how Lady Grey might be a good introduction for a non-tea drinker, or maybe even for someone who prefers green tea. In my case though, it lacks appeal, and there is nothing special about it.

Although it is a relatively inexpensive tea, I really enjoy this lady grey from Twinings. Those who enjoy a more subtle flavor of tea will enjoy this. It has a slightly fruity taste which I enjoy. It's the best when eating sweets I think. The light citrus flavor will compliment tart fruit flavors and offset sweeter flavors such as chocolate or caramel.

This tea has a heavily citrus aroma. The tea doesn't taste very good to me, but I don't know what Lady Grey is supposed to taste like. It tastes very citrus and has a weak tea flavor. I like it enough to finish the cup, though. I added cream and sugar.

This tea was good for an average black, and I found it refreshing. The dried leaf smelled like lemon, which was a nice pick-me-up. The lemon hints didn't extend to the taste of the tea, which I also appreciated since I'm not much of a lemon tea fan! Overall I liked the tea, but I would look elsewhere if you are looking for something fruity.

Very nice, more subtle flavor than the more potent Earl Grey.

This tea had a lighter black-tea-taste to it, and the citrus flavor was strong; like the flavors had switched places from Earl Grey tea. It was good - not what I expected.

I love, love, love Lady Grey. It's not as strong as Earl Grey, but has a more fruity (citrus) flavor. Great with some honey and milk!

I have a soft spot in my heart for this tea. It's earl grey with less stridency and more heart. Yum.
