Having searched to find the perfect Earl Grey, and being disappointed many times over, this is definitely the nicest version I've found to date. It is divinely fragrant as noted by another reviewer, this is exactly how Earl Grey should be! The bergamot is just right, powerful enough to be of note which I find is missing in many others. You know you're drinking a high quality tea - the comparison to Twinings made me laugh!
after trying several different earl grey teas, this is the best flavor, i found alot of other teas had tooooo much bergamont to the point where it seemed like i was drinking perfume, yuck! if you want the best try tealyra.
I have no idea what the reviewers are on about with regards to this Earl Grey, they must be used to boring tea. This is not boring bland flavorless tea. This is a divinely fragrant powerful truly bergamot flavored tea. No this is not Twinings (insert eye roll emoji here ???? ), this is a real bold delicious strong black tea. If you like Twinings or Bigelow, then buy that, you shouldn’t be shopping for boutique teas anyway cause you obviously don’t understand them, they are intended to be flavourful, not bland. The scent of this tea is citrusy, flowery, invigorating and just gorgeous. If you don’t like that then you shouldn’t bother. Go to a high tea event and significantly overpay for a boring white bread and cucumber sandwich to have with your boring tea instead.

A beautiful tea. Just don't et it brew too long...it will get very bitter.

We love this tea. It's a classic delicate Earl Grey flavour.
I don't have much experience with loose leaf Earl grey teas so I can't say this is what a cup of Earl Grey should be like. If you are expecting something like Tetley or Twinings be prepared for something very different with a lot of bergamot flavour, which pre-packaged Earl Greys appear to lack greatly. I am still undecided whether it's too forward or not but it is still a nice sip. This blend brews up nice and smooth with none of the awful tannin after taste so long as you don't over steep or burn your tea of course.
FYI, I drink teas without sugar or milk or lemon-- so these are my thoughts on the tea without any of those additions.
I generally love all the Tealyra Teas that I order, but this one, not so much. It almost tastes a little soapy to me. I’ll try it a few more times and see if it grows on me.
Ho hum. Completely and utterly ho hum. I mean, Bigelow's Earl Grey is better than this. Twinings for sure is better. This is not worth the hot water I boiled to try and finish the package.
I didn't like this at all gave me a headache and made me feel nauseous!

It's not a very nice Early Grey. Slightly chemically. One of my colleagues has the premium Earl Grey, that smells much better (but I haven't tried it).

Something went very wrong mixing up this earl grey classic….astonishingly offputting! This is my first ever review on tea in 30 years….please go check your stock and review it yourselves. Literally undrinkable…sorry…

Dreadful tea. Just cheap black tea and cornflower pedals. No Oil of Bergamot smell or taste. Nothing like real Earl Grey. Lots of money for nothing!
Worst Earl Grey I have ever tasted. Also, the smell of this Earl Grey is off putting.
