Twinings has been blending my family tea for years. Legend has it that my ancestor, the second Earl Grey, was presented with this exquisite recipe by an envoy on his return from China. He liked it so much he asked Richard Twining to recreate it for him. Generations of my family have enjoyed Earl Grey tea and today, I am proud to continue the tradition with the tea celebrated throughout the world known as Twining Earl Grey.

At Twinings, we take great care to ensure that the Earl Grey you drink today tastes as extraordinary as the one Richard Twining first created. Fresh, fragrant and flavoured with the distinctive notes of citrus and bergamot.


Black tea
Natural citrus flavour with other natural flavours

I only use this for sun burns. Use the ice cold version and a wash cloth and let it soak for about 5 minutes and then dip it back in to the tea. I use a huge bowl and it works great for this but anyways constantly cooling the burn for an hour it will pull the heat from the burn without the nasty smell of vinegar. It will turn into a tan

This is my favorite tea EVER. i drink it every single morning and it just gets me going. I add sugar and nothing else. It isnt really a strong tea, but it does have a black tea taste. It is pretty light. This is pretty inexpensive compared to other teas, but of course the bigger the package you buy, the more expensive it will be.

Favorite early grey tea brand next to Tazo! Very strong notes of lavender in this one which I really like! It balances out the caffeine which is nice. It’s a steady energy. I recommend this tea to everyone and anyone who want to try tea.

This tea is good - it has a strong bergamot flavor and holds up pretty well with almond milk or as a London Fog. The quality is good for the price however I prefer Bigelow or Tazo for their taste over this brand.

Twinings makes an excellent, affordable middle of the road tea. The Earl Grey has a delightful Bergamot scent that is very relaxing. It’s a great tea for people who aren’t quite sure if they like hot tea. When brewed properly it has none of the bitterness of cheaper bagged teas. TWININGS® OF London Earl Grey Tea BagsI like a nice hot cup with honey and a little milk in the afternoon for a little pick me up.

This is my absolute favorite brand of Earl Grey tea. I have tried other brands, but nothing compares to Twinings. Also Earl Grey is always my go to. It is so light, but it calms me in a gentle way.

Twinings Earl Grey is what my granny drank and so i have been using it as long as I can remember. It’s flavorful without being overpowering. Sometimes tea has an excess of tannin which makes me nauseous, which is the opposite of what I want tea for! Serve this with just a little bit of sugar and a splash of milk. It’s great at 4pm teatime.

I had my sister bring me back a box from jolly ol’ England - it was great! I’m a big tea drinker, and part of me was super excited that this box was coming straight from London. It’s convenient because all I have to do is boil water, and then pour it over the tea bag! Two minutes of steeping, then it’s ready for drinking!!

This is my favorite tea to have in my cupboards. I'm a huge earl grey fan, and this tea is strong and has just the right level of bergamot for me. It's pretty forgiving, and doesn't grow bitter if you accidentally oversteep it.

My absolute favorite tea ever!! My mum is from England and I grew up drinking this - gentle flavor that’s not too overpowering or watered down! A good pick me up with a little bit of caffeine in it and delicious when you’re trying to warm up! I buy in bulk because I have a cup at least once a day, I recommend to all!
