Our Review
This tea was in the original five teas that made up our Historic Royal Palace tea line. The tin is a lovely blue that is reminiscent of the sapphires found in the Tower of London's Crown Jewels. We blended a special Earl Grey for this occasion. It is stronger in body than the Earl Grey Supreme (a nod to our British cousins' taste for strong teas.) And the lemony bergamot is also stronger than our other Earl Greys.
Dry Leaves A mixture of black and brown leaves.
Liquor The liquor is a clear brown, tending toward russet.
Aroma The lemony aroma of bergamot from Italy comes through clearly.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body The medium bodied tea is lightened by the addition of oolong tea.
Flavors In the later decades of the British Empire, the citrus flavors became synonymous with Earl Grey Tea. This tea is true to that heritage.
Brewing Time 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

The ABSOLUTE BEST Earl Grey out there ...
Average Review:

I never thought I would find a better Earl Grey than the one made in England by T****ings. BUT this Imperial Earl Grey is by far superior. Wonderful flow through bags allow 100% infusion. Perfect blend of bergamot as well. Kudos to Harney & Sons for this tea :) !!!

Very balanced between tea and bergamot flavor
Average Review:

I just got this tea today, and I'm drinking some from my thermos as we speak. It's a very good Earl Grey. I like the balance of the tea and the bergamot flavor; not too citrusy like a lot of the other Greys I've had in the past. Overall I'd give this tea a good rating. If you're looking for good balance and something to really perk up your morning, this is a really good tea. I must add, it's a lot better than the Earl Grey from Teavana; Way to go H&S, you all are master tea blenders for sure.



Average Review:

I ordered this one when looking for 3 good staple black teas to keep in my cupboard. It is GOOD. But the Earl Grey Supreme, Diamond Jubilee & Citrus Blend won out. I definitely would not turn it down if offered at a shop or someone's home. To me, it doesn't have as much bergamot flavor as I like.
