I absolutely love this Earl Grey tea. For my palet, which prefers a strong tea with deep bergamot favor, it is the perfect Earl Grey. I've tried Harney's regular Earl and the Supreme and countless others from various suppliers, and this is my favorite. However, I am extremely disappointed that it only comes in the sachets. Not only do they take up more room than loose tea (requiring an oversized tin that is too big for my pantry door shelf), but it is also not compostable. We compost all of our tea, loose or in bags, but the cloth sachets can't be composted. Seemingly a minor annoyance, but it has prevented me from ordering again. Finally, when I find a tea I really like, I prefer to order by the pound, but the largest quantity of this tea that can be ordered is 30 sachets. Hoping someone actually reads this review and considers offering the tea loose. I can't find anywhere on the website to email a comment/suggestion.
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 :) !!!
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.
