From Twinings of London

(Taken direct from the Twinings website)
The London Strand Earl Grey from our Discovery Collection is made from China tea scented with a blend of traditional bergamot with a twist of other citrus notes and added lemon peels. The beautifully designed box contains a lovely little golden bag of tea.

If, when an afternoon drags its heels, you look for a lovely lift, you’re in grand company: the 2nd Earl Grey could take a short stroll along the Thames from Parliament to Twinings on the Strand to collect his uplifting tea our Master Blenders made specially for him.

In this blend we’ve added a sunny twist of citrus flavours and lemon peel to the deep, black China tea and bergamot flavour blend, creating a bright tea that whispers your day back to life.

Taking a break from GCTTB teas this morning, as my boss has asked me to taste test two earl grey teas he recently purchased to see which one I like better/deem higher quality. I was flattered that I am seen as the tea expert in the office, but I have so many other teas to taste in a limited time that it couldn’t have been worse timing! But, I am intrigued with the challenge, so here it goes.

I had this one when I came into work this morning. I must say, I really like the design of the box. It’s really quite lovely and definitely a different standard than the regular Twinings packages. I assume this one is the more expensive tea I am comparing (the other will be Tazo Earl Grey). A past reviewer mentioned that the flavour profile is something in between Twinings Lady Earl Grey and regular Earl Grey, which is a pretty accurate description. Although, I would say that in addition to that, the black tea base definitely has more body and flavour to it, with a hint of smokiness that almost makes me think they used keemun in this blend, though a mild variety. The tea was definitely taking cues from Lady Grey with its citrusy lemon notes, and only a mild aroma of bergamont. Overall I quite enjoyed it, I was just a little put off by the strong black tea base which I wasn’t expecting.

Fiancee and I have affectionately nicknamed it the “Prodigal Son of the most noble House of Grey,” as its flavour lies somewhere in between Twinings’ Earl and Lady Grey blends. If the Earl and Lady had a smart, bright, witty son with a good head for business who can write poetry and ride horses, likes ships, and will soon be taking over the father’s company and refresh it with vigor and vibrancy while still keeping with tradition where it’s needed, that son is this tea. Robust but not overpowering, not as delicate as Lady.

Unfortunately I haven’t seen it available in the US where I’m at, but it’s my tea of choice when I’m up in Canada with my fiancee. A bit pricey, and each box only contains 15 bags(the nice pyramid type, though). Nevertheless a wonderful brew.
