Twinings Earl Grey tea, the traditional English tea, is a scented black tea blended with bergamot orange, enriching it with an uplifting citrus flavor and aroma.
The resulting refreshing pale gold, delicate scented tea is the world famous Earl Grey Tea, which is best drunk plain, with a little milk or just a slice of lemon.
The classic traditional Earl Grey tea is basically black tea with uplifting bergamot flavoring. Bergamot is a type of fragrant citrus fruit and the flavoring comes from the oil extracted from its rind.
Great whether drunk as a morning wake-me-up tea, a soothing afternoon tea or a relaxing after-work evening tea while reading the interesting Tea Shop Mystery series by Laura Childs.
When expertly blended with the right amount of bergamot oil, not too strong nor too weak, it has a distinctive fragrant aroma and no bitter astringent aftertaste.

Twinings reformulated their Earl Grey tea in April 2011, and rebranded it as The Earl Grey Tea.
With more bergamot and lemon added resulting in a stronger citrus flavor, however, it was not so well received by consumers who prefer the old traditional Earl Grey flavor.
Thus, the old tea blend was brought back and renamed Earl Grey Classic and sold alongside the newer blend.
Traditional Earl Grey is a black tea blend but it is now possible to buy oolong, white and green Earl Grey tea blends for a more modern tea experience.
Buy Stash Earl Grey green tea, a delicate blend of green tea leaves with bergamot, if you prefer green tea, a traditional tea with a modern feel and taste.
