From Red Rose

Delicately blended with natural bergamot flavor, Red Rose Earl Grey Tea is a full-bodied blend in the Red Rose tradition. This robust, refreshing tea, from some of the great tea estates in the lush green mountains of Ceylon and the African Rift Valley, captures the centuries-old tradition of Earl Grey Tea. Bergamot, a fragrant citrus fruit, gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive aroma. There are many legends about the origins of Earl Grey tea but it is generally accepted that the blend was first presented in the 1830’s and named after Earl Charles Grey, British Prime Minister of the time. Now, the true essence of the Earl Grey blend is captured in every cup of Red Rose Earl Grey Tea.

Very boring. Better than Lipton’s appalling attempt on an EG, but nothing to write home about. I like my EG to have a mild, smooth black base, and this one is astringent, which I find takes away from the bergamot oil. EG should be confectionlike and delightful, and this blend tastes like an English breakfast with a twist of something faintly citrus-y. A similar affect could be produced using a plain black Tetley teabag and a lemon wedge.

I’m officially a snob, I suppose.

This tea did not taste like Earl Grey in any sense. Having drank many good Earls, this was not even close to tasting like one. It was simply put, cheap and terrible. Don’t waste your $$$ on this one. The Red Rose basic is a far better choice!~

This a citrus Earl Grey with lemon and orange peel in it. It’s either light on the bergamot, or it’s masked by the citrus. It’s unique, I’ll give it that much, but I personally prefer plain bergamot.

Its a very cheap Earl Grey…this might make you afraid…but I enjoyed it. The flavor of the of Bergamot is there, but its more fruity than Bergamoty.
